Rhythmic canvas
In his famous essay, Meaning of Art, Tagore describes the artist as a magician of rhythm who imparts an appearance of substance to the unsubstantial. This observation accurately sums up the art of Jonaki Pal. With her free flow of colours and lines, she is able to conjure up the extraordinary from the ordinary, discovering ‘substance’ in the ‘unsubstantial’. She also attempts to break free from stereotypes through the rhythm of colours and lines, displaying a rare combination of sagacity and simplicity. In her rendition of art, rich colours come together in a kaleidoscopic maze, creating an enigmatic effect. Inner Eye, the ongoing exhibition of paintings on canvas by Pal, finds her at her insightful yet picturesque best. Whether painting stories of happiness or sorrow, triumph or defeat, optimism or pessimism, her creative force expresses itself with characteristic vigour, generating its distinctive rhythm, harmony and balance in its own, unique way.

Event: An exhibition of paintings by Jonaki Pal When: Till June 16; 2 pm - 8 pm Where: The Halo Heritage Gallery, 26 Ritchie Road
