ELOQUENT SPACES

Crumbling palaces, echoing pillared halls, mesmerizing carving and dreams in stone are the inspiration for this, Natasha Kumar’s latest exhibition at Railings Gallery, an exhibition of unique works on paper that captures the

essence of Indian architecture. They are the spaces and elements she seeks out on her journeys around North India. The sense of place, rich emotion and meaning that she finds, Natasha brings back to us conveyed through rich colours, intricate design, subtle and evocative textures. Always with a twist that makes her work unique and exciting. In that spirit, and with Diwali approaching, this exhibition features a new edition, Ganesha - New Beginnings, a screenprint edition of just 40 prints. Ganesha, gazing from his stone step-well niche, ever ready to assist us on our own journeys of fortune and success, carries his symbolic implements in hand: the broken tusk to write the Vedas; the goad to check and guide; the mace to strike obstacles and a bowl of ladoos, sweet blessings. The patina of ancient stonework and colours of Rajasthan in the Carved Jali series take us to the echoing, eerie spaces of Bundi Palace. In the Choti Jali series bright sunlight pierces the private windows of the women’s quarters. The abstract and the actual come together to vivid effect in the

Rasa Collection, Natasha’s own meditation on that quintessential North Indian motif, the chhatri.

ABOUT NATASHA KUMAR

Natasha Kumar first exhibited at the age of 17 at the Royal Academy in London. A first-class degree in printmaking at Manchester was swiftly followed by printmaking studies at the Venice Accademia and an MA in printmaking in Camberwell in London. Since then via London galleries and art fairs, exhibitions at the Royal Geographical Society and a 5 month solo show at the Southbank, she has acquired an extensive following among discerning collectors worldwide. Last year, Soho House bought her work for its latest premises in Mumbai, and she was won the Rise Arts International Screenprinting Award, judged by Harland Miller. Her passion and inspiration is India. Quarter Kashmiri and quarter Afghani on

her father’s side, distilled Derbyshire on her mother's, the sub-continent is in her artistic genes. In her work, it emerges as a riotous collision of colour and character, a sense of people and place.
