Art like beauty is a joy forever. This in a nutshell is the philosophy of Sheila Thadani’s art. The works of this exhibition radiate gaiety. He works speak the beautiful relationship between a mother and child, be it through her vibrant paintings or her bronze statues. Each work tells a story of its kind. Women and children and the relationship between them, is a favourite theme with Sheila.
“The female form is an embodiment of grace and beauty. In my paintings in oils, I try to portray the sense of serenity and dignity of a woman. In my bronze sculptures, I have depicted ‘Mother and Child’ in various moods. Through these I have tried to capture the complexities of a mother and her relationship with her child. The mothers sacrifice and her unselfish love towards her child is reflected through these works. All this makes her the uncrowned Queen of Humanity. My sculptures denote this strong bond and the caressing movement which symbolizes such a relationship.”
