Another Identity" a group exhibition of paintings by women artists at Gita Art Gallery, 39, Sadhna Enclave - 14th to 27th November 09
The show ‘Another Identity’ is an initiative to prove this. This show belongs to some of those women who have already accomplished in their lives, roles of daughter, wife, mother, businesswomen etc. However, sometimes in playing these roles, one loses sight of whom we can or want to be and are left feeling we do not have our own identity. With other roles accomplished, this is now a new phase in these women’s lives as an artist, as a creative person. 
Art is a way for these women to express their feelings. This creative expression can also connect them with an inner joy and happiness and lead them towards spirituality. Their individual struggle and inner turmoil is evident from each one's works in their own distinctive style.
 And we, Paromita and Sunando, are mentoring them to find the key to their own creativity.


Krishna N. Ajwani is the name of a person with many dimensions. A Law graduate with distinction marks and a gold medal in post graduation, one imagined that she'll take on the black robe and join the legal profession but she had better ideas. The creative instinct in her told her to paint the pots. Not satisfied with the confines of pottery, she tried her hand on jewellery designing. She did well and earned a reputation. Very soon, the free spirited soul hopped on to mosaic work. Now finally a complete artist is before you. She is a self taught artist with the guidance of Sunando and Paromita Basu.

“My abstract paintings are like a prism which reflects different colours, out of one ray of sunlight.”


Nanda Gupta a Delhi based artist.. She first started painting as a means to convey the beauty of nature and capture in art those magical moments when she felt connected to nature.  She experimented with different kinds of medium, loved what she was doing and became a serious painter. She has been actively involved with Amfora Wine & Foods Pvt. Ltd from its inception and visiting vineyards opened new vistas. She initially trained under Kavita Jaiswal and later under Sunando Basu. She is passionate about her art and wine, dedicated to her yoga practices and enjoys the support of her husband and daughters in her artistic endeavors.

“Painting has made me a deferent person. I have realized this is my life purpose. To express myself in a way that brings my true self out and hopefully touches the viewer from within.''


Rachna  Lodha is very judgmental about her works. And she is very sensitive about them, too. She had done three years diploma course in applied art from New Delhi Polytechnic in 1989 and practiced art with the guidance initially under Mr. Saini and later under Sunando Basu. Her works depict shifts from natural environment to modernization. Her works are a reflection of not only the nature, but also the mind and heart of the artist attempting to solve the questions posed by observing the world around her.

“Life is beautiful .It is in us what colours we put in it. Sometimes the colours might be dull and grey but I always feel that they never stay that way long .So I want to give my paintings the amalgation of beautiful hues which I see in the nature around me.”  


Sangeeta Jindal has a unique innovativeness in her nature. An empty canvas is like her playground where she plays around like an innocent child.  She is a self taught artist with the guidance of Mr. H. Singh, Gagandeep Singh  and Sunando Basu.  She has learnt various techniques, styles, mediums in the field of art. She realized that experiment and experience plays a major role in art and creativity. She has done a solo show At Café Zaffiro, New Delhi  2009, and Participated in a show organized by Art Mall, Delhi 2008. She also attended art workshops at The Attic, New Delhi and with Fevicryl.

“I don’t feel the need to consciously make a form. Sometimes I feel it’s a supernatural power guiding me with my selection of colours and forms. The emerging forms have a mystical aura about them.”
