Intersections Art Gallery presents the Kavita Issar Batra‘s exhibition “Queen of Sheba- Singapore Sidewalk“.
This exhibition encompasses photographs, monotypes and one oversized mixed media painting on canvas, which is an imprint of the Singapore sidewalk.
Following the success of Kavita’s debut solo show of painting, “Of Time, the Elements and their Essence”, “Queen of Sheba” focuses on her creative process. This process starts during morning walks by spotting, observing and collecting natural and urban elements. Sometimes, Kavita is so mesmerized by what she observes that she takes a photo on the spot. Most of the time, the Montage is composed by combining textures, forms and colours.
“Queen of Sheba” refers to the artist’s childhood memory. Kavita enjoyed playing this game, which consisted of collecting pebbles, flowers, leaves and other botanical treasures, during long walks with her mother. Since 2012 she has been reviving this game every morning in her urban neighborhood of Singapore, collecting and composing Montages, which she shares with a growing number of followers on facebook.
