Description

Manisha Gera Baswani

Manisha’s visual language is defined by an assertiveness that makes visible the universe of the mind, and not only that of the eye. Her works offer the viewer different encounters and each encounter is treated with great painterly precision. Her compositions deal with spatial geometries evident with loosening of structure leading to a move towards abstraction of realistic details. Though her elements are a representation of the mundane, she manages to imbue each with an imaginative possibility of colour and form, transforming them to the exotic. Each rhythmic composition that she creates becomes a testimony to the joy she derives from the act of painting.

Manisha is a recipient of the French Government Scholarship to Paris and also the National Scholarship, Government of India. She has participated in several national and international exhibitions including some in Berlin, Amsterdam, Bombay and New Delhi.

She is also identified as a very important art collector.

The artist lives and works in New Delhi.
