What: Triveni Kala Sangam presents ‘Marigold- 9’ , a solo exhibition of paintings by Kavita Rajput. The artwork depicts the dreams of living beings which they see, think and draw while they sleep. According to Rajput, although sometimes living beings are day dreamers, the weaving of the dream with fiction, joy, melancholy, silence, pain, spirituality makes it inspirational. She has been displaying different dreams in one or the other way through her artworks since 1998. Rajput believes her solo and group exhibitions improve her artworks, her thinking and her aesthetic. Art for her is a joyful and conceivable expression in sync with her latent energies.
