The exhibition features paintings that address the Kantha textile tradition of India, an intergenerational form of story-telling. Natasha’s art practice is a metaphor: stitch by stitch, mark by mark, transforming of the available and the discarded material.
Narain believes historical events fractured and altered the self-reflexive nature Kantha practice. The artist is seeking to resuscitate this self-reflexive quality and creates voices that cross boundaries and give wholeness to the maker, their family and the community.
