Mona Rai View Gallery 


Born in Delhi, Mona Rai studied M.A. Psychology, Delhi University and attended art classes for a couple of years at Triveni Kala Sangam.

Her looming, square works epitomize her artistic attitude. Textures fascinate Rai; dots, dashes, slashes, directional strokes and streaks create her particular style. Square canvases are seldom used in figurative or narrative art, since dramatic distortions are hard to accommodate. The same format, however, seems more feasible with regard to abstract art, where problems of proportion and perspective do not arise. Rai depends basically on square sizes in small formats, sometimes going on to large rectangular canvases.

During her long and distinguished career, she has had both solo and group shows. Most recently was a group show called 'Paper Pulp' at Gallery Espace, New Delhi 2000. A workshop of women artists at India Habitat Centre, New Delhi, 2000; 'The sheen of metal', Palette Art Gallery, Delhi, 2002; Performative Textures by Apparao Galleries, Chennai at India Habitat Centre, New Delhi, 2003.
