 Rakhi Baid and her works

Mumbai artist Rakhi Baid is organising an exhibition for the first time in the city. Her paintings depict Lord Krishna, who is a symbol of love, and whose flute, bells, conch shell and peacock feathers are a part and parcel of his divine presence. Her paintings speak of Radha’s unconditional love for Krishna.

“Being a self-taught artist, I try to capture every moment and freeze time in my paintings. In today's day and age, we barely get time to express our love and pain to our beloved. Through my paintings I wish to capture every feeling of the human mind,” said Rakhi Baid.

“I used shades of blue, and even explored with black and white in mixed mediums on canvas. To the world, black is the colour of shadows, but to me it is the colour of pride. It's the colour in which the internal flame of love shines. Like day turns to night, white turns to black, but what remains is the power of love.

Radha's affection for Krishna was as pure as white and as constant as black. It always remained unending and unchanged. Black is as beautiful as Krishna's own colour 'shyaam' and white is as pure as Radha's devotion for him. Hence I am trying to show the constancy and continuity of their cycle of love,” she added.
