New Delhi, Feb 23 (UNI) German artist Kirstin Pukall makes her debut into the Indian art arena with her first solo exhibition titled 'Indian Rhapsody'.
The venue was Open Palm court gallery, at India Habitat Centre in South Delhi.
The exhibition comprised an eclectic mix of both figurative and abstract paintings in acrylic inspired by India. Kirsten's work tells a story translated on canvas by her adept brush strokes.
The human figure are a ruse to her poetic use of colour and play of multivariate textures. The painting captures the poses and moods of humble people in stoic silence. Each work of artist is coupled with her skillful use of imagery to put forth her thoughts, each painting is remarkable in its technique and use of colours is magnificient.
Kirstin Paukall says, ''A holiday in India in 2005 changed everything. India's myriad colours left me fascinated and numb all at once--just the tonic I needed to ignite a lifelong passion.
My abstract's have the same powerful colours that 'open a window to my mind's eye' on India. These paintings represent my feelings about this beautiful country--India.'' Kirstin Pukall, a lawyer by training, headed a division in the German Federal Ministry of Economics in Berlin until Summer 2006. Prior to her Law studies she studied fine arts at the University of Mainz in Germany.
However, she felt that something was missing - she needed a change and an opportunity to come to India to put back the missing piece.
