The exhibition is presented by Tao Art Gallery in collaboration with Bougainvillea Gallery.
The hand embroidery technique has been a long-standing one in the Indian tradition. Primarily used to create intricate, heavy patterns on clothing and other interior accessories, the forms depicted usually follow a set pattern of motifs. Today with the advent of machines, it is a slowly dying art form, invested in by a few.
Brinda, through her brand Morii emphasizes upon the ‘art’ in this technique, harnessing women artisans to create fluid abstract landscapes. Her vision is inspired by nature and its subtle, often unnoticed movements through wind and water. The colours used and patterns stitched are calming and joyful to experience with the technique becoming a means of deeper expression. There is much power in its minimalism as each work stands complete, leaving the viewer with a sense of peace and introspection. Brinda says, “through my art I aim to create embroidery that transcends its traditional roots, producing visually striking pieces that embody the spirit of abstract painting.”
With this unique collaboration between her vision and the women artisans bringing it to life, we see a beautiful narrative of creativity and community unfold.
