Web Exclusive | October 2013
Art Alive Gallery presents 'The Japanese Wife and Other Tales', a solo show by artist RINI DHUMAL from 17th October to 25th November, 2013. This collection is inspired by Aparna Sen's film about a beautiful Japanese girl who falls in love with a Bengali school teacher through an exchange of letters. Her other inspiration comes from the Bengali film Chitrangada, where Rituporno Ghosh deeply impressed her in the title role. These and her discoveries of people and distant places provide the visual reference for the present exhibition. In deep and sombre shades of ochre, maroon and indigo, these paintings present a picture of melancholic beauty.
