‘WE TWO, OURS ONE’ – 2010
NILOFER SULEMAN

Art Musings presents their second solo exhibition of artist Nilofer Suleman. Suleman believes that inspiration lurks at every street corner, in the chai kadas, old Hindi movie posters, Ravi Varma’s god oleographs, in the excessiveness of painted trucks and in the simplicity of our archetypal interactions on the street and in the movies. She is inspired by Indian typography and street graphics and brings Indian Graphic Culture onto a contemporary platform. Suleman juxtaposes the real world on the streets to a softer world where lotuses sprout from any surface, serpents fall asleep daintily in one’s hair, and blue-skinned lovers embrace. Through her paintings, we see glimpses of how these worlds meet in everyday ritual and adornment. We Two, Ours One is an exploration of the innocent mirroring and emulation of the romances and attitudes of our self-created Gods and film stars till there is no clear distinction between the two.
