Pages from the sketchbook of life

While we are caught up in rush hour traffic and the crazy commute, life passes us by.

But it’s a collage of miniscule moments, complete with shadows, random people and chaos, that add up to form the sum of life. Pages from my notebook, the first solo exhibition of paintings by artist Rohini Singh, is an attempt to record the sights, sounds and colours that often get overlooked but leave behind a profound impression.

The imagery incorporates men, shadows, birds and inanimate objects, forms and colours to portray aspects of life, hope, mystery and death.
