Dreams on canvas
Spandan is an ensemble of 30+ of Sangeeta Singh’s recent works mostly as oil on canvas but also some drawings on paper and an installation. The wistful visuals seem to emerge partly from her colourful real-life encounters and partly from some ethereal dream-world. Singh paints in oil on canvas, drawings on paper and also creates mixed media art. Of particular interest is her play with shadows, grids and objects.
Till October 7, 11 am-8 pm, Visual Arts Gallery, India Habitat Centre.
