About the show - 
Joan Kelly an artist from Singapore , is proud to present her 25 beautiful paintings in the second Indian exhibition at Visual Art Gallery , like her first exhibition “ The Initial encounters”  this show will also portray her encounters  with the people she meet on the streets of Kolkata and Varanasi .  Through her artwork she bears witness to ritual and traditions in Varanasi surviving the assault of “progress” be that environmental degradation or economic depravity, “these Paintings celebrate the people of Varanasi who take out time from their busy lives each day to practice traditions and rituals, in a world where everything is about making money and moving markets, the actions of these people are independent and revolutionary” Says Joan Kelly.

  The paintings celebrate a re-definition of revolutionary and throws light on diasporic adaptations of “traditional ritual” as a gateway between two realities; one in which the participant thinks they are repeating and honoring traditions but which serves as a re-invention of the diasporic community identity, by the traditional formalities in the political public space. Joan Kelly has taken inspiration   from the stories of people she meet on the streets in  India specially in kolkatta for her paintings, She fell in love with the warm welcoming nature of the Bengalis . “  I got to know the people in the neighborhood of Kolkata and I feel in love with them , they were interesting and open minded just like people in Singapore , I interacted with the women on the streets of Kolkatta and listen to their stories and started painting them” Says MS. Kelly.
