British-Indian printmaker Natasha Kumar will be in the gallery to answer questions and talk through the vibrant works on display in her new exhibition of screenprints and etchings, 'India - People and Place'.
Natasha's vivid, colourful artworks capture a deep sense of love for her paternal homeland and for a 21st century India that is at once contemporary and timeless. We see the country through glorious, boldly coloured snapshots: the sunlight through a diaphanous sari or the steady homeward journey of a woman and her cow.
She first made her name as an artist at the age of 17, earning a place at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition before studying printmaking at the Venice Academia di Belle Arti and completing an MA in printmaking at Camberwell College of Art.
Her works will be on show in our Upper Gallery until April 8.
