The paintings in this ensemble are at once nostalgic and practical, as they venture into the narrow, historic lanes of Mylapore, but ultimately land up in small shops offering a cup of coffee, an ironed shirt, or even recycled plastic bottles! Kavitha says: “ I’ve used heavier pigments and overlays here to convey the mild chaos inside such shops, the patina of dust on everything, and a paler watercolour to signify light.”
