The Only Window Opens Inward
This evening I was lucky enough to visit The Nehru Centre in Mayfair for the private view of "The Only Window Opens Inward" by Indian artist Richa Vora.
This was one of these exhibitions which made me want to go home and paint. Her work is so tremendously beautiful, it really captures her view of India. Using thickly applied glossy oil paint, her work was almost abstract from up close and sheer perfection when you stood a few steps back.
Every one of her pieces captures the emotion of her subject and their environment. She uses a vibrant orange/ red colour palette which really portrays rich colours that one associates India with.
Her exhibition funds until the Friday the 19th of May and if you are around Mayfair I strongly recommend that you go, it's stunning.
