’16’, a solo show by contemporary artist Sunaina Bhalla

Oct 17, 2017

Using the background narrative of the Ramayana and the Mahabharata, Sunaina has deconstructed the characters of key women in these epics. These 16 women are examined through paintings, sculpture and installations, with the focus being on the relative balance between the three colours of black, white and red. it represents the three different emotions that are experienced – with the balance of the palette denoting degrees of the dominant emotion. About the artist: Sunaina is a contemporary artist of Indian origin, who lives and works in Singapore. Educated in India, she moved to Tokyo in the late 90’s and has spent the last two decades in various parts of north and south Asia. Having completed her formal education as a textile designer specializing in print, she chose to pursue an immersive education in the traditional art form of Nihonga in Japan, where she spent 5 years studying under Ohta-sensei of the Kyoshin-do school. Her work currently, revolves around the repetitive and ritualistic nature of gestures and their traces. She explores the transformative effects of the deliberate infliction of pain on the human body during the curative process of alleviating disease and decay. By using industrial materials analogous to the fragile nature of the body, she examines the passage of time and the mark making that documents this process. Using colour as a basis for exploration, she contemplates the various connotations of colour and its effect on the human psyche. Sunaina has exhibited in Japan, India, Singapore, Europe and the Middle East. Her works are in the permanent collections of the ESSL Museum, Vienna and Mumbai Airports Authority, India and in various private collections globally.Date of the exhibition: 16th November to 25th November 2017. Time: 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Venue: "Art Konsult” a/22, Hauz Khas village, deer park, Hauz Khas, New Delhi -110016
