Eyes on the Road: New Works by Indrani Choudhury

Dr. Indrani Choudhury is exhibiting at the library in September 2014. Her paintings span her whole universe, from her local supermarket in New Jersey, to her childhood home in Calcutta, to scenes from travels around the world. In each she tries to express something specific – a particular color, the interplay of light and shade, a moment we see but never notice, or a memory she has carried since her childhood.

Bo Jordan gives new meaning to the expression, “hand-painted”. The Highland Park artist literally finishes 90 percent of her paintings without brushes, using her fingers and palm to apply paint to canvas.
