Joss Graham's Layers of Beauty

 [Contemporary painting on silk, Orissa, India, 2010. Available through Joss Graham.]


Many of us associate Joss Graham with beautiful antique textiles but the London-based dealer also offers ceramics, baskets, jewellery, sculpture, and paintings -- including contemporary productions like the decorative example, above. Based on an old Orissan style of painting which involved engraving and coloring palm leaves, this piece was recently painted on silk (tassar).

BTW: LACMA offers nice overviews of Indian painting here and here
