    Commentary

  • Vinita Karim carries with her the forts of Malta, the sand dunes of the Sahara, the city of Dhaka, a boat, the Mediterranean Sea, and enough paint to color them all. She turns cities into artwork. If only one could reverse the process and enter her dreamy abstract cityscapes. You would see a pure golden sky, deep reds and blues shaping a rolling sea, festively colored buildings, and a thin cloud stretching endlessly across the sky. Hopping from city to city would take you through Vinita’s memories of Tripoli, Berne, Nuremberg, Manila, Stockholm, Cairo, an underwater city, and a few other places you just won’t find in this world. Born in Myanmar, educated in Sweden and the Philippines, but originally from India – Vinita’s nomadic lifestyle has led her all over the world. She has taken full advantage of her constantly changing surroundings and applied it to her passion in art. No matter where Vinita goes, through her paintings, sculptures, or installations, she carries with her the rest of the world.
