HYDERABAD: Mumbai artist Rakhi Baid is organising a solo exhibition for the first time in the city. Krishna is the symbol of love, the melodies of flute, bells, cows, conch shell and peacock feathers are all elements that symbolize his divine presence, Radha’s unconditional love for Krishna, expressing the voice unsaid by exploring all the elements of his presence in her life, through her paintings.

“Being an independent soul and a self-taught artist, I try to capture every moment and freeze time in my paintings. Through my paintings I wish to capture every feeling of the human mind,” says Rakhi Baid.

“I have used all the shades of blue, and even explored with black and white in mixed mediums on canvas. To the world, black is the colour of shadows, but to me it is the colour of pride. It’s the colour in which the internal flame of love shines. Like day turns to night, white turns to black but what remains is the power of love. Radha’s affection for Krishna was as pure as the white and as constant as the black. It always remained unending and unchanged. Black is as beautiful as Krishna’s own color ‘shyaam’ and white is as pure as Radha’s devotion for him. Hence I am trying to show the constancy and continuity of their cycle of love” she added.

The exhibition will be held from from November 6 to 9 at Chitramayee State Art Gallery.
