Description — Click to read

Much of Chitra Merchant's works uses ancient Indian historical sites as a source of inspiration from which to root and develop imaginal structures that take on a life and logic of their own. Merchant is deeply interested in the metaphor of a 'Temple', ruined or whole, as an outward manifestation of an inner value. Bell Jar is an on-going series of paintings, prints and drawings that use the image of a bell jar as a metaphor to suggest a state of vacuum that forces its contents into a condition of perpetual stasis. The contents in the Bell Jars allude to various emotional, psychological and political statements. Artist Sales: This work is sold by the artist. The sale is facilitated by RA Enterprises (RAE) for which RAE receives a commission from the artist only.
