Breathing Lines 2: Madhubani-influenced artworks
This exhibition features a series of paintings by Shringi Kumari. They depict beings and their relationships with mind, self and nature in abstract Madhubani style. They invite viewers into pulling, peering through and unlayering the patterns to keep looking beyond, with curiosity and creative interpretations.
Shringi Kumari is an artist, poet, game developer and researcher. She is keenly interested in psychology. With her work she hopes to challenge patterns, forms, ideas and help to open gateways of cultural inclusivity through common humanity. She uses line drawings inspired by Madhubani to tell stories that link us as one with nature and with each other. Embedded in ideas and practice of kriya yoga her work connects the mind, body, breath and environment as one.
Shringi will be present in the Galleria during her exhibition, to meet with visitors and chat about her techniques and inspirations. Her work is for sale.
