Capturing the colours

first_imgSo it was, with artist Sun I-Yu when she first visited India more than 10 years ago. In her on going exhibition Colours of India, she has put together a series of oil paintings and crystal sculptures reflecting her impressions of the country.For her colour and beauty in India is not mere theory, it is a practical expression of national identity, shaped by religious devotion and a long and proud cultural heritage. In artist Sun L-Yu’s words ‘Indians are magicians when it comes to matching colours – putting orange with purple evokes celebrations and festivals, deep blue with dark green portrays serenity, yellow and fuchsia is vivid and full of vitality. Men’s turbans, too, display a distinct sense of character, reflecting the personality of the wearer and speaking of firmness of purpose’. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Besides the wealth, she saw the poverty in the country, but was particularly struck by the breathtaking colours that she witnessed all around. On that very first trip, she was captivated by the dazzling spectrum of hues of even the simplest garments. Then, after seeing them again and again over several years, she gained a firm sense of the vibrant spirit that runs through daily life in this country. Over the course of her visits to India, she has endeavoured to capture in her painting the pure, vibrant visual sensation of the country.When: 12th December, 11 am onwardsWhere: Lokayata Artists Gallery Hauz Khas Villagelast_img
