The art of conversation

Picky Tastebuds

 After almost 26 years of experience and many group shows, Srividya finally had her big solo show at the Time and Space Gallery. “My mom says that I have been painting ever since I was three or four,” says Srividya while adding, “now it has more or less become a part of my life.” Landscapes and nature, she says, have always fascinated her so she thought that there was no better way than to take that up as an inspiration for her first solo.
All those present on her special night were taken aback by the calm and soothing effect the paintings portrayed. While some loved the colours she played with, others loved the energy and the strength each painting carried.
Subhash Agarwal, who collects art as a hobby and even has one of Srividya’s paintings said, “I love the way she plays around with the water colours which brings out her personality,” he adds.
The main theme of the paintings comprised of glimpses of life while travelling in the countryside. On asking many of the guests what they usually see while looking out of the window when travelling on the outskirts, one guest said: “I have seen children playing, women carrying pots of water and the beautiful trees.” To which Srividya recollected, “Once while travelling I saw this beautiful scene near a banyan tree where on one side there were children playing and on the other, there was this small corner for worshipping.”
Artist Shan Re too was present admiring the works and making sure all the guests were comfortable. There were also a few who had just come back from their trip abroad and were eager to catch up with all that they had missed.  
Glasses of wine and fruit juices made their way through the chatty crowd, and the hostess was on her toes mingling with one and all.
