Event Details

This exhibition showcases a series of acrylic paintings exploring the notion of Indian adornment. The extravagant fashions of India are world-renowned. Yet, much of the historical significance of adornment has been lost. At its core, Indian adornment is a visual expression of social identity. The paintings within this exhibition aim to document this through the portrayal of Indian women, exploring the cultural and historical meaning behind traditional accessories. Focussing on women allowed me to explore the relationship between delicate ornament and the power of self-expression. This use of adornment empowers women, intensifies their energy. I have sought to make this tangible through the strong use of color, pattern and texture.
