Bengali artist finds her muse in landscapes, nature
For Kolkata-based artist Sujata Kar Saha, the natural landscapes she saw during her childhood in her village returned to her as inspirations for her paintings, a fresh selection of which will open for public display on Friday here.
In an exhibition titled 'Shifting Expression' at the Triveni Kala Sangam, Saha will display 21 recent paintings that reinterpret landscapes in a range of vibrant hues. Her medium is oil on canvas.
Asked why she chose to work with nature, Saha told IANS that in her village Kashipur in West Bengal's Purulia, she grew up with rocks, agriculture and open skies, images that remained with her in her adult life.
Equipped with a rich colour palette and memories, she paints natural imagery that resemble mountains, rivers, valleys and the horizon.
Saha's solo show runs till July 21. Entry is free. IANS
