Feng Shui frames
THE WATER colours and oil paintings are a subtle blend of diffused colour, lending a sense of spatial harmony to the essentially Chinese mythological themes, with auspicious Feng Shui symbols dominating. The principles of Feng Shui guide the use of colour for each theme. The placement of the figures and objects in the frame makes each painting culturally significant.
As Feng Shui Master and consultant Kashmira Daruwala puts it, "The paintings have both aesthetic value and Feng Shui benefits. The colours and themes bring good fortune, health, dynamism and harmony. For instance, red and orange represent dynamic energy and are appropriate for business houses. Blue and black represent water, which symbolises wealth, and so on... "
The exhibition of Feng Shui paintings features works of artists who have trained at the Government College of Arts. Other themes include bird and animal life and a few lyrical landscapes with bamboo, mountains and water. According to Daruwala, each painting has been energised by Feng Shui mantras and Reiki. She also advises where to hang a particular painting to derive maximum benefits. The exhibition of Feng Shui paintings will be on view till April 25 at Hide Out, Prince Plaza, Egmore.
