Sita is creative and spiritually sensitive too. That normally results in great art with the only other variable being you.
Chitramayee, State Gallery of Fine Arts, is organising an exhibition of paintings by Sita Sudhakar, from 7th to 14th November. The exhibition, consisting of 44 paintings, was inaugurated on 7th November at the Chugtai Art Gallery, the art gallery of Chitramayee, with the title Shristi And Kriti Akriti. The Shristi collection is inspired by spirituality, while the Kriti Akriti works are inspired by nature, but with forms more human in nature.
The Shristi paintings depict the inner soul and the Paramatma, with Lord Ganesh as the muse. Sita paints the Lord as the flowing water, as growing at a tree, as blossoming as a flower, and on the rustles of a leaf. In one of her paintings, Gruhagrajaya, Lord Ganesh has been painted in green and lilac inside a cave with a mobile phone, in place of a rat.
In Kriti Akriti, one of the paintings called The Meditating Soul signifies the various stages of meditation through open, semi-open, droopy eyes depicted in a lotus. Another painting with the title Bonds, tries to convey the relationship of humans with nature and vice-versa.
Sita, an Andhrite settled in Delhi, is a self-taught artist who stumbled into art when her daughter got admitted to an art school. She uses transluscent colors, not more than 2-3, in a painting, with minimal strokes. Her collections were exhibited in Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, London and California. Poetry is another medium through which she expresses her creativity. A book of poems and paintings titled Dirisena Poolu will be released later this month.
