Kalakriti Art Gallery presents Leaving the further journey towards infinity, to the imagination, a solo show by contemporary artist Poushali Das.

The element of her painting concerns spirituality translated through research and revival of ancient traditional techniques, methods and motifs from sub-continental traditional culture. Taking inspiration from this mode of narration, she assembles different frames of her thoughts and emotions into smaller panels and creating an ensemble to narrate different stories. When these panels come together, they invoke a completely different effect of meditative stillness because the narrative runs through not only the horizontal or vertical axis, but relates in every direction of the multi perspective space arrangement.
