December 10 | Living in Shantiniketan, India: A Tagore Family Legacy
Presentation by Boisali Biswas
$5 suggested donation
Boisali Biswas, the mixed media fiber artist, will be talking about the five years she spent at Shantiniketan (Abode of Peace), a neighborhood of Bolpur City in West Bengal, India. It is the home of the Visva Bharati University where she received a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts. Boisali will share this unique and enlightening experience that has more or less shaped the person she is today. She says, “Not only did it help me to carry on my life as an artist but be more compassionate towards life, nature, and humanity.”
In her Artist’s Statement, she writes:
“In my everyday life, my escape, my retreat, is my creative power of Art. My work is indigenous to my inner self and is a place of solitude, passion, and contemplation for me. The final offering is the culmination of a series of wordless conversations between me and my artwork. The subject matter of my work is drawn from my own life experiences, trips, thoughts, and surroundings. My art is like a journey for me through the passage of time-honored techniques, traditions, and influences in an endeavor to produce art for everyone to appreciate.”
Boisali Biswas is a studio artist working in mixed-media fibers, currently residing in West Bloomfield, MI. She is originally from India, and her formative years were spent at Visva-Bharti International University, founded by the Nobel Laureate, Rabindranath Tagore, poet, writer, painter, musician, educationist, and philosopher. The essence of that profound experience of being in tune with nature throughout the educational journey has stayed with her and continues to influence her work. She has always had a deep-rooted attachment to the traditional art forms of her culture-rich homeland. There is an underlying influence of the captivating traditional patterns and techniques and usage of a stunningly rich array of colors in Indian art. Living in this country for over two decades and adapting to Western styles, techniques, inspirations in concert with her background and fascinations has made her Art into a cauldron of unique multicultural assemblages that are a feast for the eyes.
