Signio Paintings

Distinctive and exceptional, stamped with a typically Indian idiom of miniatures, the paintings by Ma Passion are meant for those with an inherent appreciation of aristocratic folk art, those with an academic interest in the dramatic, eclectic and lyrical rhythms of brush and pigments. Evolved from a Mughal style that is heavily influenced with Persian antecedents and western elements, the paintings also indicate a Rajput strain derived from Hindu mythologies and epics as well as Islamic histories and chronicles. With hybrid themes that range from the depiction of everyday life to abstract and surreal, the talented painters come from families that belonged to the guild of the Mughal and Rajput courts. With watercolours and oil paints etched onto handmade papers and canvases, the compositions are a paradigm in the curricula of art where a new language has been born through the continuing efforts of our artists, addressing issues of the modern times and post-colonial predicament.
