Art Musings opens their next exhibition Rhapsody featuring watercolour works by Paris-based artist Maya Burman on 5 June 2014. Daughter of celebrated Indian painter Sakti Burman and French artist Maite Delteil, Maya has developed her own unique style. Maya Burman’s inclination towards floral, decorative patters is along the lines of the French Art Nouveau tradition. Patterns weave and float around the central forms evoking a sense of exuberance and joie de vivre. Maya creates a dreamlike fairyland in her paintings. Most of her characters are imaginary people, but she weaves in her own experiences and personal mythology. Her former training in architecture influences her work, visible in the scenes set within arches, columns and porches. In the larger works there are multiple viewpoints and the sections are not always linear. In the smaller format works however, she depicts a minutely dense imagery. The exhibition continues till 20 July 2014.
