Well-known artist Sangeeta Babani is holding a solo show titled Myriad Feelings. As the title suggests, the paintings displayed will be about the feelings generated through various emotional upheavals. Each painting is subconsciously a motivated image provoking the beginning of a feeling. Speaking about her exhibition, Sangeeta says, “My feelings help me to inspire and create. Most of my work involves the creation of paintings that are essentially subtle confessions that evoke feelings of love, pain, fear and ecstasy. They perform the role of a conveyor of personal feelings through colours.”
