Her stint at printmaking in Calcutta ... made me go ... WOOOOW ! I have to ... have to ... have it ... :)) ... and I do. Dithi ... your Baul is a one of the most Cherished pieces in our home ... :)
Her description of Baul...
My trip to Shantiniketan last year took me to bauls.... the colours of the setting Sun woven with the lush green of the rural Bengal fields in their 'hazaartappi's (patchwork gowns). The spirit seeks to free itself, to wander with the music in search of the light and in search for love.
This was my first Lithography work, made from a single aluminium plate and I love how the imperfections lend to the spirit of the work.
... :) ... find Dithi and her work ... on Facebook ... here. Dithi I am so happy that your talent is appreciated and loved and admired by the huge fan followingyou have. Makes me wonder what the archetypal pundits of Indian art... now feel ... where once it was impossible to be anywhere near a gallery unless you fell out of an art school. The way you explore art and and the way it resonates in your work ... you are sure an inspiration ... YOU GO GIRL ... :)
