Paintings of a dream world on display at Peasant’s Museum

An painting exhibition entitled “Between Fact and Fiction,” signed by Adity Chakravarti, wife of the Indian Ambassador to Romania can be seen as of today at the Peasant Museum’s Aquarium Hall, all through October 9. The paintings, reminiscent of In­di­an folklore, bring out creatures with half – human, half- beast appearances, angels who walk on water, strange shapes that can be only found elsewhere in dreams. The colours of coral, amber, turquoise, emerald and the golden foils spread here and there, dress up the wood pieces on which the images are painted and highlight their dark margins. Furthermore, the poem “Between Fact and Fiction” written by Adity Chakravarti will be transposed into dancing, therefore creating a perfect art symbiosis. Living and travelling on many continents alongside her husband, Adity had the chance of meeting different cultures. The experience of more than 20 years as an artist has made this inter cultural fusion visible in her artwork. Thus, one can find Africa’s ebony and orange soil in her work, the magnificent crimson of the Canadian Maples in their autumn mood, the luminous blue of Krishna, India’s patron god and even Romanian archangels and heralds. Making a transition from her earlier works where her images were calm and dream like in shades of coral and tur­quoise, she has used images that are vibrant in hues ranging from the fiery orange of the parched African earth, to the rich chocolate of ebony.
