Indian painter exhibits works for Bangladeshi connoisseursJune 4th, 2009 - 11:44 am ICT by IANS
Dhaka, June 4 (IANS) Indian painter Ujwala Prabhu is yet again exhibiting her works for Bangladeshi connoisseurs on what she calls “Chokher Dekha, Praner Kotha”, which means “what the eye sees, the heart speaks”.
A regular on Dhaka’s art circuit, Ujwala has this time exhibited paintings that do not conform to any single theme, says The Daily Star newspaper.
“Running with the bulls” and “Sadhu” (acrylic on canvas) are two of the exhibits this year.
“Ujwala Prabhu likes to observe her surrounding, people from all walks of life and their expressions. Her paintings record individual worlds, personal joys and woes. Her themes are contemplative, yet simple.
“One aspect that is noticeable in her works is that she has not confined herself to a certain theme. Her canvas is truly a reflection of peoples’ needs, dreams, despairs and ecstasies,” the newspaper said.
The exhibition includes Ujwala’s figurative paintings featuring tea vendors, rickshaw pullers, contemplating women, ascetics, gossiping people, boatmen and more.
“Her images easily translate a gamut of emotions and moods,” the report said.
