On View at Pradarshak - “Painting with Poetry” - semi-abstract figurative paintings by Rashmi Pitre
10th Dec. – 22nd Dec.’12: Pradarshak presents - “Painting with Poetry” a solo exhibition of semi-abstract figurative paintings by Actor, Artist & Poetess Rashmi Pitre
On one of his visits to Pradarshak,
Gulzarsaab had stood riveted in front of a painting for about 8 minutes,
undisturbed, when he suddenly broke out into poetry, “yehi woh kambha tha, jahah mein khada tha...” He then explained how
the painting reminded him of a poem he had penned a long time ago.
The relationship of
one artistic oeuvre interlaced with another is often the prerogative of a
blessed few. Rashmi Pitre, actor, artist
and poetess is one such creative, who simultaneously revels in all three
pursuits. Accomplished actor with several TV soap operas and a few films to her
credit, Rashmi has written over 150 poems and held over 30 art exhibitions in
India and abroad.
An alumnus of St.
Xavier's College, Mumbai with a B.A. with Hons. in Ancient Indian Culture (Philosophy)
and a Diploma in Original Philosophy of Buddhism from K.J. Somaiya Institute of
Religious Studies, Mumbai, Rashmi is a spontaneous poetess and very rarely
makes any alterations to the original verse that graces her canvases on
poetry is a blessed experience in itself,” says Rashmi. “The soulful touch of
the journey from the heart of the painting to the heart of the poetry, going
hand-in-hand underlines the experience of a lifetime... I write my own poetry
on canvas. I love my freedom and independence to work with brush. I love colours,
their vibrancy and brightness... they give me energy.”
The exhibition needs
to be closely experienced. On until 22nd Dec.’12; 11 am - 7pm;
except on Sundays. Open to all.
