DESCRIPTION

Interior Landscapes of NEENA NEHRU and ANITA TIWARY

Oils, Acrylics, Installations

Neena Nehru :  Society’s attitudes to the role and position of women is reflected in its art. Neena Nehru was struck by the fact that, all over the world and throughout history, women have almost always been portrayed, either as beautiful objects of desire, or as suffering, oppressed victims; they are strong only as mythical characters - as goddesses or comic-book super-women. Rarely, if ever, are the ‘feminine’ qualities of gentleness, nurturing, compassion, sympathy celebrated.

Neena’s present exhibition examines these issues through installations and paintings. A section of the show explores the changing facets of a woman’s persona. Another group of paintings depict woman, not as a force trying to dominate Nature, but as a part of it. A group of heads which cannot be easily identified as male or female suggest the equality of the sexes when it comes to the essential qualities of mind and ability.

Neena’s work is part of a joint exhibition with abstract artist Anita Tiwary

Anita Tiwary : The titles of Anita Tiwary’s paintings are as evocative and sentimental as her work of art. Anita’s works are surreal in its visual appearance and thematically they move into a space where she seeks to negotiate the interplay of real and unreal in her works. These works conceal an unknown reality and evoke an abstract visual representation of our realities. These visual forms are ‘Soulscapes’ of Anita’s mind and how she sees it. Thus she defamiliarises the familiar for us and creates a new spatial dimension in her paintings for the viewers.
