Artist Statement :
I held my first solo exhibition in New Delhi in 2002 , inaugurated by Dr. Manmohan Singh, Honourable Prime Minister of India. I have since then held nine solo exhibitions in India and one in London at the Nehru Centre. The Lord Paul of Marylebone inaugurated my exhibition in London. I was a participating artist in the recently concluded art exhibition at the National Museum of Riyadh. It was a group exhibition in collaboration between the Indian High Commission and the Saudi Arabian government ,of women artists from both countries .The exhibition entitled “Reflections ;Women in Art” was inaugurated by Her Highness Princess Adelah of Saudi Arabia.
Critic's Words :
The subject of her work is nature and she depicts women in harmony with nature. The medium of her work is oil on canvas using palette knife and watercolor.
In her latest works entitled ‘A JOURNEY’ she has portrayed women – the giver of life in diverse forms and nature, wherein she brings in the element of a bilateral flow between the two life forms. The expressions of the women in her paintings depict a relationship that seems to be interdependent .This is a woman’s journey and how she lives in harmony with her surroundings. Iconographic interpretation of the divine force inspires the artist. The elephant God emerges out of a very sublime horizon. Ganesha symbolizes the divine force that surrounds the human form, which he does not always notice. Abstraction in form and textural backgrounds adds that mystical air to her works. Kajal Nalwa in many ways has paid a tribute to the selflessness of the divine force called “Nature”.
