An exhibition of paintings by artist Jayani C. Pinnawala titled Reflections in Colour will be held from today Monday, February 01 to Wednesday February 3 at the Lionel Wendt Art Gallery.
Jayani has always attempted to create an enchanting world through her painting which would bring happiness to the Art lovers. Her borne is on the positive aspects of life. Her painting speaks of beauty of life, the serenity of environment the unforgettable expressions of people, the lovable and graceful existence of animals and birds and the beauty of flowers. Jayani’s use of vivid colours and shadows enhance the depth and the natural image of the painting ‘Blues and Blues’ one of her new paintings, she has used mostly blue colour and without using green which she thinks is a good experience.
The whole painting, including water, trees and bushes are painting using only blue colour. In some paintings she uses very few colours, sometimes two colours, sometimes two or three colours to complete the creation.
The colours used in the background of painting ‘In sorrow’ brings out the feeling of sadness ‘helplessness’ is a painting of an elderly woman which was done during the Tsunami disaster. When travelling to other countries she takes her time off to visit museums, and places that display painting. The exposure gained through her travels abroad, has had positive effects on creating her own work.
