Various artworks made by a contemporary artist. Dr. Ishita in oil colours on canvas reveal her intense urge to adorn them with apt icons of beauty of nature in different seasons. Her forte lies in an attempt to depict in each work with the wonders of Nature and their impact on the human mind via relevant visual metaphors. She has been impressed by the countless moods of Nature, from vast skies, to deep valleys, blossoming meadows, snow peaks, frothing seas, and all the dynamics of their constantly shifting light and shade. She was deeply obsessed with an inner urge to create artwork using the eternal wonders of nature. She came in contact with Artist Sayaram Waghmare, senior contemporary artist of international repute who, as her guru, played a pivotal role in her journey in art. Dr. Ishita is a Life Member of Art Society of India, Bombay Art Society, and Artist Center, Mumbai, and has participated in various solo and group exhibitions across reputable galleries throughout the country, including Kala Ghoda Art Gallery, Mumbai, Kamalanayan Bajaj Hall & Art Gallery, Mumbai, Parijat Art Gallery, Jawahar Kala Kendra, Jaipur, Lokmanya Tilak Art exhibition, Pune, Academy of Fine Arts, Kolkata and has now reached the Jehangir Art Gallery, Mumbai.
Her latest series, Boundless, to be presented at Jehangir Art Gallery, exemplify subtle nuances of various happenings in seasons throughout a year. A burst of colours and the mad beauty of Nature find voice in her works like A Skyful of Madness, A Paradise in Bloom, Morning Revelation, etc. Her paintings give solace and hope to the suffering souls in these turbulent times.
Paintings like A Prayer of Hope and Solace of Crashing Waves usher this quiet sense of peace and positivity in the viewer.
