Presented by Gallerie NVYA, the exhibition features the extraordinary artwork of renowned artist Seema Kohli. On display is her new collection of embroidered artworks with silk and cotton threads, beads, and sequins on untreated canvas cloth. The show promises to be a captivating exploration of the self and its connection with the spiritual cosmos.
In her own words, the artist describes the exhibition as a universal odyssey that blurs the boundaries between myth and reality, self and the other. She draws inspiration from ancient Indian myths, delving into themes of beauty, sensuality, and spirituality. Her artworks celebrate the female form and Shakti, the feminine cosmic energy that represents the source of all creation and destruction.
Featured in the show is a diverse assemblage of artworks, including 15 pieces meticulously embroidered with silk and cotton threads, beads, and sequins on untreated canvas cloth. Additionally, there will be three large paintings adorned with acrylics, gold, and silver leaf on canvas, as well as two mixed-media works combining painting and embroidery. The artist’s masterful creations are a visual narrative that beautifully intertwines various elements of life, spirituality, and the teachings of revered weaver saints. One of the highlights of the exhibition is a multidimensional performance at the Bikaner House Amphitheatre that seamlessly blends animation, music, poetry, and movement to create a truly immersive experience for the audience.
