They are "abstract and representative art". So guess why these paintings are selling? It's the same reason all abstract paintings sell. Which we don't know.
Kalakriti Art Gallery is organising an exhibition of paintings by Suchitra Krishnamoorthi, from 18th to 30th November, at its art gallery on Road No. 10, Banjara Hills. A total of 32 big and small paintings, mostly acrylic on canvas and mixed media on canvas, are under exhibition.
The paintings are abstract and representative art that are expressions of Suchitra's inner feelings reflecting faith, love, rebirth, devotion, fervor, freedom, eroticism, flora and fauna. These are quite evident in her works like Foetal Movement, Are You Ready To Be Free, Looking Out, Dancing In The Storm, and a couple of paintings on Ganesha. The vibrant colors of her paintings, under the background of brightness, give them a 2-dimensional effect.
Born and brought up in Mumbai, Suchitra is an actress, singer, painter, poet, and wife of renowned film director Shekhar Kapoor. Having established herself as an actress and singer at a very young age, Suchitra recently took to painting. She has trained under Anil Naik, a Professor of Art at the JJ School of Arts in Mumbai, and attended workshops with Betsy Dillard Stroud (New York) and Dana Ellen (Washington DC).
She held her first exhibition in July 2005 - under the guidance of Harsh Goenka and presented by Vickram Sethi of the Arts Trust of India - which turned out to be huge success, as all her 56 paintings were sold out. This encouraged her to take up the art more seriously.
She is the only Asian artist to display her works at the prestigious Chelsea art show in London in June this year. She has exhibited her works at Museum Art Gallery, Art Palate, Bajaj Art Gallery and Harmony Art Show in Mumbai, and at Visual Arts Gallery in New Delhi.
