Jayasri Burma, Sastrik, Watercolour Pen & Ink on Paper, 36'' x 48'', 2010

October – November 2010

Art Musings opens their next solo exhibition of renowned artist Jayasri Burman entitled Fables & Folklore on 25 October 2010 at Jehangir Art Gallery. The show presents a large body of over 35 paintings and sculptures. Jayasri’s art, derived from the rich tradition of Hindu mythology, has carved out its own identity. The imagery in Jayasri Burman’s work has a dream-like and lyrical quality. Inspired by the Indian folk element, the paintings have a unique sensitivity. She weaves the decorative design element of the folk idiom into the intricate patterns of her works, without losing the natural charm and naiveté that is uniquely her own. Jayasri’s themes deal with the traditional and sacred, but the artist gives her works a nuance that is reinterpreted to have a more contemporary context. Jayasri has had several solo shows, including Sacred Feminine with Art Musings in 2006 and has participated in landmark exhibitions all over the world. Her works can be found in important museum and private collections. The artist lives and works in New Delhi.
