Crumbling palaces, echoing pillared halls, mesmerizing carving and dreams in stone are the inspiration for this, Natasha Kumar’s latest show at Railings Gallery, an exhibition of unique works on paper that captures the essence of Indian architecture.
They are the spaces and elements she seeks out on her journeys around North India. The sense of place, rich emotion and meaning that she finds, Natasha brings back to us conveyed through rich colours, intricate design, subtle and evocative textures. Always with a twist that makes her work unique, and exciting.

Chhatris are the raised onion-domed pavilions found throughout India. Often ornate, intricately carved or painted, chhatris are a defining element of North Indian architecture, incorporating Hindu and Moghul design, and especially evocative of the culture of Rajasthan. For Natasha Kumar they are a constant inspiration for her work.
This study is a detail from the Royal Chhatris in Bikaner, Rajasthan.
