Sunanda Khajuria’s Cherry Blossom

In Sunanda Khajuria’s two accordion format books she notes, “what I have created for this show belongs to my series of Moving Landscapes which are the culmination of my experiences of different times and places during the last few years. In these books I pay attention to different perspectives and dimensions of the cherry blossom, using it as a symbol for life and death. The brief life span of these small flowers reflects the everlasting cycle of life, death, and rebirth. When these blossoms come into being each year, they are celebrated for their overwhelming beauty, yet simultaneously mourned for their tragic brevity of life. The blooming season is powerful, glorious and exciting, but unfortunately short-lived – a visual reminder that our lives, too, are fleeting.”

The Cloud of Cherry Blossom was launched at Art Heritage during The Art Book Exhibiton, 2019. View installation shots of the show here.

Jai Zharotia’s Luqman

Jai Zharotia has created 30 acrylic works inspired by Luqman Ali, a fictional character penned by the well-known Hindi poet and novelist Soumitra Mohan. Jai’s wild and exuberant colors spill out beyond the page, objects are suspended in a world that appears to be without gravity, as protagonist Luqman Ali sprints, cartwheels and somersaults his way, like a kind of acrobat/jester through a harsh political landscape, dotted here and there with erotic desires.

Gouri Vemula’s Mahabharatam


After exploring multiple texts, Gouri Vemula chose to work on the Mahabaratham, citing it as “a treasure house of the Indian culture, an insight into the attainments and solutions to all problems – even though none of these could avert the 18 day war that ensued.” Gouri avoids any trace of color. Instead the monumental work is conceived in somber grey tones with only dry point and pencil as her mediums. Using ‘hands’ as her central leitmotif in the visualization of each sequence, Gouri enhances the drama by employing strange, oblique perspectives and angles that highlight the frenetic energy of the protagonists with muscular tautness. Centralizing Krishna as her chief protagonist Gouri portrays Lord Krishna’s transcendental knowledge with the undercurrent of mathematical concepts employed by him. The artist’s focus is on “the vows, curses and boons that time and again play into the karmic cycle of karma and kala.”
