Art.Motif presents a new exhibition by Renuka Reddy, titled “The Art Of Hand Painted Chintz”. The exhibition displays a selection of wonderful hand painted chintz that took inspiration by patterned cotton cloth from India. A prized trade cloth for centuries, had a profound impact on many textile practices around the world, from calico printing in the West, as the artist stated : “I paint a wax line willing it to be finer and finer, even as I become a familiar sight to a certain flock of sheep greeting me every evening with their baaa, I am seeking. I am seeking to unlock the secrets of this mysterious art”.
