> DESCRIPTION

The Singh Twins are contemporary British artists whose style is a fusion of Indian traditional and contemporary Western influences which they label ‘past modern.’ Their use of colour, decorative patterns, symbolism and flattened perspective reflect Indian miniature paintings yet these are cut through with modern political, social and cultural themes. Their work continues a long tradition of artistic interaction and influence between cultures. Selected works and a trail by twin sisters Amrit and Rabindra Singh offer a contemporary response to The Indian Portrait 1560 – 1860 exhibition and the Gallery’s permanent Collection.
