Arpita Singh's women are robust and earthbound, but they defy gravity and float in a weightless world alongside airplanes, pregnant clouds and migratory birds. Her men are often seen holding flowers but they also tote guns or are dressed in formidable black coats. In some works, text and image collide; sometimes they hold together and are related to the image, and sometimes they are just ‘visual elements' that do not make words. The child in her work is absent and yet ever-present in her open-ended approach. Her works are made of bright, joyous colours, yet they convey deeply personal and political themes. Singh's solo show, ‘Submergence: In the Midst of Here and There,' at Delhi's Kiran Nadar Museum of Art, curated by Roobina Karode, brings together a body of work that uncovers the artist's vast oeuvre of six decades.
