Kavita Issar Batra, is an Indo- British artist based in Singapore since 2009. Kavita describes this series of her artwork, in this exhibition, as an exploration of the idea of memory, of remembering and being remembered.
“Perhaps you have noticed the ‘marks’ dead leaves, twigs, seedpods or flowers leave on the surfaces they fall on. Usually after the rain when the sun dries up everywhere, the moisture trapped beneath these leaves causes them to leach colour and imprint themselves into the surface long after the actual leaf may have blown away or disintegrated. These imprints speak deeply to me of our human desire to remain even after our physical death, in people’s memories or through legacies we may leave to future generations. As the sun shines and dries the pavements, the imprints fade to nothingness and the pavement returns to being a blank canvas ready for the next piece of detritus to attempt to be immortalized. Talismans of eternal hope”.
