On View at Sunaparanta
Exhibition of Miniatures by Olivia Fraser
Olivia Fraser got her first sliver of spotlight in 1994 when she illustrated husband William Dalrymple’s Delhi travelogue, City of Djinns.
She is a descendent of James Baillie Fraser, who painted India, its monuments and landscape in the early 1800s. Fraser has inherited her Scottish ancestor’s fascination of monuments and familiar Indian scenes ranging from baul minstrels to Bollywood babes.
She has studied the traditional Indian miniature painting technique under Jaipuri and Delhi masters, and now uses this in her work with its gem-like stone colours, its unique miniature brush work, and its elaborate decorative and burnished surfaces.
Her latest show is in a whole new mould, and gives the ancient art of miniatures a modern and minimalist twist.
The exhibition will be on till 28th September 2013
10.00 am to 7.00 pm (Sundays Closed)
