Complemented by family photographs and a brief biography by Dr Alka Pande, this book traces the journey of Hemi Bawa, a Delhi-based artist. It chronicles Bawa's life in terms of the art she nurtures - from a young painter without formal training to her explorations of several creative media; a fiercely focused artist who is equally at home with painting, photography, ceramics and now as an innovative sculptor and a pathbreaking artist using cast glass in the contemporary Indian art world. Lavish, full-colour images of her works of over two decades allow readers to engage with the art she represents, rounding out the portrait of the artist with international sensibilities.



Author Bio (3900 characters maximum): Dr Alka Pande, Consultant Art Advisor and Curator of the Visual Arts Gallery at India Habitat Centre, New Delhi, has curated a variety of perceptive exhibitions in India and abroad. She was a reader at the Department of Fine Arts, Punjab University, Chandigarh, with numerous academic papers and lectures to her credit. Dr Pande holds a post-doctoral degree in critical art theory from Goldsmith's College, under the aegis of the Charles Wallace India Trust Award, and an MA and a PhD in history from Mumbai University. A recipient of the Chevaliers dans l'Ordre des Arts et des Letters from the French government for her contribution in the field of art, Dr Pande has authored several books. Prominent among them are Ardhanarishvara, the Androgyne - Probing the Gender Within; Masterpieces of Indian Art; Indian Erotica; The New Age Kama Sutra for Women and From Mustard Fields to Disco Lights - Folk Music and Musical Instruments of Punjab.
