The Sarovar Story: Sunayana Malhotra

November 13-December 7, 2022

Kalakriti Art Gallery, Green Valley, Banjara Hills, Hyderabad, Telangana, India

Kalakriti Art Gallery presents a solo show The Sarovar Story by contemporary artist Sunayana Malhotra. Enchanted by the lotuses artist, Sunayana Malhotra committed herself to exploring its fleeting moods, and unplumbed depth. The word ‘Sarovar’ sums up a great deal of water symbolism documented in the religious history of India from the time of the Rigveda. For her ‘Sarovar stories’ are part of her vivid imagination of what a ‘Sarovar’ will look like at different times of day – it bloomed, shriveled, and came back to life.

Dominated by vibrant hues, her artworks explore the harmony between man and Mother nature – inspired by prosperity, symbolizing beauty. Transience and a sense of movement in these paintings touch the viewer with the play between the cosmic energies and symbolisms floating all over her body of works.
