Acts of drawing are sometimes summed up as dirtying the paper delicately,1 but Ayesha Sultana’s drawings in Outside the field of view, her first solo at Experimenter, Kolkata, mounted from the 9th of May to the 26th of June, are anything but delicate.

Art is a force that compels me to see it in nature, people, places and things. Mixed Media collage is much like the bits and pieces of life. It allows me to create a story that you can see. I am moved by the rhythm of touch, vision, places and textures. My art is a visual experience, you want to touch it, ask it questions, listen to it and wonder. It is an expression of my personal journey with the world.... [more]
