> DESCRIPTION

The Birla Academy of Art & Culture, Kolkata presents an exhibition of fusion art including paintings on parchment and various other specialities by Sunita Tandon of Lucknow. Indian artists made use of parchment much less than desired as a medium of art expression. The parchment art requires deft handling, sufficient acumen and expertise in handling the techniques involved including embossing, stippling, perforating, cutting and colouring. Sunita’s exhibition includes 45 items and her compositions incorporated ideas from Indian regional art like Madhubani and her inspiration also came from the art & craft of Indonesia and Japan. But her major concern has been to project Lord Ganesha and his peculiar iconographyin this medium. It is hoped that she would receive blessings from Lord Ganesha, the god from whom success proceeds and she would also receive from her audience the due recognition which she rightly deserves.
