"Yesterday Once More" solo show of artworks by Jasleena Singh

Young artist Jasleena Singh has always had a love for the realist elements of objects around her. Humble objects like an old family radio, a typewriter, a cane chair, old mugs all become part of her subjects created in the realist form. Her show is a three part compositional set of realist works that celebrate all things old. The lantern series, the tea series and the retro series all become little studies of still life and socio cultural lifestyles that go back to deeper reflections.

This debut positions her as a follower of decadence and reflects that she values and treasures  beautiful poetic forms in objects  and what she deems as ‘perfect workmanship’ which makes any subject admirable and worthy to be appreciated. And that is the beauty of the aesthetics of decadence. Like the famous French writer and philosopher Charles Baudelaire, understanding decadence  puts this argument into practice by combining lyrical language and complex metrical rhythms with subject matter commonly seen as antithetic to aesthetically pleasing poetics.

Artist work is about objects used in our day to day lives, which are now rarely used or just lying rusted in a corner ,” states Jasleena. “
This body of work is fuelled with old school styling and day-to-day used instruments. I believe life is about cherishing our history and reminiscing the past.
These works include my very own personal take on art with joy and pastel shades of the retro era.
Ranging from literal interpretations to metaphorical synthesis, these paintings incorporate dreams, emotions and expressions that influence my work.
This old worldly charm   is the essence of my work, and I create humble still life studies through these elements of daily use.”

ABOUT THE ARTIST:

Artist's work is about the daily use objects, which are now rarely used or not at all. This body of work is fueled with old school styling and day-to-day used instruments. Life is about cherishing the history and reminiscing the present. These works include her very own personal take on art with joy and pastel shades of the Retro Era. Ranging from literal interpretations to metaphorical synthesis, these paintings incorporate dreams, emotions and expressions that influence her work.

This graceful look is the essence of the work, through these elements of daily use. The use old texts & paper, calligraphy, different fonts on my canvas as a background that makes the bond even more stronger and clear, whilst preserving the physical vanity of the objects/elements of the bygone era. Also portraying the ever-growing sentiments, local histories and narratives of folklore and tradition.

Artist's paintings are a manifestation of her muse in realistic experimental form. These elements reflect an era through which India’s culture has grown through, and is standing where it is today. Seeing all this or perhaps these objects have seen time changing and shifting, and surely have helped in the constantly ever-growing society.

Such objects exist to be our superstructures like our monuments as a reminder of an era where all this was an essential part. Through this body of work artist is trying to portray the rich legacy and cultural history of our bygone era, while showing the displacement and migration, which was hence brought to independence after a huge long struggle.
