New York-based artist Priyanka Tewari returns for her first show in Bengaluru at Karnataka Chitrakala Parishath
Her mixed media works of art will be on display until July 17th.
In the exhibition titled dream, dreamer, the artist questions the authenticity of what we know and perceive as real and unreal.
Through her works on display, she examines the intricate relationship between the conscious and the subconscious.
Are dream and the dreamer separate entities, or is the difference only an illusion, her work further explores.
She invites the viewer to investigate this evocative expression with her.
The works on display are an interesting combination of paintings and word art.
All the works are on canvas.
The word art creation alone consists of 21 pieces of neatly arranged stretched canvases.
Rest of the works are acrylic paintings, created with layering and glazing techniques.
Priyanka moved to Bengaluru from New York in April 2019, where she had several acclaimed solo and group shows in reputed galleries in Manhattan, Brooklyn and in Westchester County of New York.
Her works have been covered extensively in both national and international media.
She also published her first art and poetry book Signs in 2018, in the United States that was reviewed by an accomplished author, and has a foreword by Art educator at Guggenheim Museum, New York.
Priyanka, a Bachelor of Engineering, quit her full-time job in 2015 to dedicate her time to art and to her family.
She has been painting since then and has never looked back.
She also holds a Senior Diploma in painting from Bhangiya Sangeet Parishad, Kolkata and Senior Diploma in Indian Classical Music from Pracheen Kala Kendra, Chandigarh.
