Studio visit sounds better: meet the artist- 

Manisha Parekh

She was working while we entered her studio; a piece of beautiful music was flowing. She looked at us curiously and slowly started to talk about the academic systems, art students and so on. During that conversation she asked some basic thoughtful questions: Do you believe in the social responsibility of art? How do you look at the boom in art market last few years? What do you think about Contemporary Indian art? The answers of these questions are profound and demands contemplation. She showed us some of her new works and catalogues. The works tend to touch and feel the texture and material lessen the psychic and physical distance between work and viewer. The color and texture of the thread she uses, gives the feel of nature I experienced back in my childhood.
