Boshudhara Mukherjee Returns With Her Second Solo At Volte

Baroda-based Boshudhara Mukherjee was the first artist we covered on this site, back in March 2010, when she debuted at Volte gallery with her solo show, Painted Veil. Her woven tapestries seemed to have something fleeting about them; their intricacy was one part of the beauty, the other was the patterned shadows they cast on the walls behind. Now two years on, Mukherjee is back with a second lot of works—seven canvases that are each as painstakingly created as the pieces in her debut. A few things, however, have changed: Mukherjee works with oil paints as opposed to acrylics and the loose ends and frayed edges have been tidied up. There is a greater suggestion of form, and more stenciling of architecture and interiors, Gothic-esque structures that Mukherjee pulls out entirely from her imagination. The show, The Dangling Conversation suggests something incomplete, that even with the tidier weave, there’s the sense that one tug is all it would take to unravel it all.
