Intimate spaces of immensity and silence manifesting as lines that dance into existence, communicating sacred presence and process in this Charlotte Cain solo show of works on paper. Opening Fri, July 30, 5-7 PM, Transcendence Design Contemporary Art.
Charlotte Cain adapts the traditional methods and motifs of Indian miniature painting to create an individuated lexicon of the spirit. Between 1996 and 1997 she studied in Jaipur with the Rajasthan master Bannu Sharma and returned for a year in 2005 under a Fulbright grant to deepen her technique. She has exhibited extensively in the US and India since 1978, most recently with solo shows at the Widener Gallery, Trinity College, Hartford, and the Des Moines Art Center. Her work was collected by the painter Agnes Martin and is in the Rockefeller collection, the William Benton Museum, University of Connecticut, and the Museum of Jnana-Pravaha in Varnasi, India. She was a 1981 recipient of a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. Catalog of Charlotte's work available from the gallery.
