Based on the trinity – Brahma (creator), Vishnu (preserver) and Shiva (transformer), with their consorts – Saraswati, Lakshmi and Parvati respectively, her paintings come alive with symbols expressing sanctity and the relevance of numerous vignettes of Indian culture in relation to their modern practices.

Indian mythological idols and Hindu iconography combine to impart visual effects of glory and transparency referencing the country’s spiritual heritage. The Panchabuta or 5 Elements, Hindu theological studies and the like find a reflection in her expression. The relevance of various chakras and their sanctity along with meditational hues become prominent, exuding an energy that creates a strong positive aura in the surrounding space. This also makes her paintings suitable to be used for yoga and meditation.

Using the cone technique, Madhavi adds accents to her expression, where the entire surface or a large part of it is raised for effect. She creates different textures using texture white and then carves on it using various tools. This is followed by cones of various sizes filled with vibrant acrylic hues that set about finishing the creative process. And all along, the artist makes sure that the work of art has a vintage feel.  

A show not to be missed!
