Solo exhibition capturing unreserved women
A new solo exhibition by Delhi-based veteran artist Santosh Jain, who is known for bringing women to the forefront, aims at capturing women in their most authentic essence, unguarded and unreserved. Titled ‘Her, Here’, the exhibition sees her deep diving into a woman’s life, one which she lives beneath the surface — a recurring theme in Jain’s career as an artist, which expands into empathy and layered personal narratives.
