EXHIBITION: Papers And Scissors

Friday, April 12, 2013


After a hiatus of 19 years, Jaishree Pankaj, through her upcoming exhibition titled, Jharokha, is bringing forth an art form which is distinct and not practiced by all. Jaishree, a paper cutting artist, has been practicing this art form called Sanjhi, which sees her use surgical scissors to create complex patterns on paper. A grandmother to seven, she is one of the rare artists who has turned this ancient craft into an art.

The pieces depict various havelis, jharokhas, peacocks, deities, krishna leelas, abstract concepts and range from `5,000 to `5 lakhs. 20% of the proceeds from the exhibition will be donated to a charitable organisation called Nanhi Kali, an NGO that focuses on the education of the girl child. Telling us more about her ongoing exhibition, Jaishree says, “I started experimenting with this form of art at the age of eight after seeing my grandfather do the same with leaves. This show is special as my previous show in Mumbai was 19 years ago and I’m excited to showcase these works as they are very close to my heart.”
