The Flight Within
When the night was talking to me
telling me the stories of stars and breeze
I flew across the bright moon
as many long-winged stories
sliding surely through the unknown paths
opening up the secrets of the clouds and waters
penetrating deep inside the earth
sitting underneath the red lamp
filling it with the yellow light

Seema Kohli

Seema Kohli
Born in 1960, Seema Kohli has created her own niche in the world of contemporary art since past 35 years. Seema Kohli has had over 30 solo show in Venice, Brussels, Melbourne, London, New York, Dubai, Singapore, Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Bangalore and alike. Her work can be seen as public art as murals of 10’ x100’ at the T3 Delhi International Airport, Mumbai International/Domestic Airport, the Defence Ministry, Tata Residency, Manipal University, ONGC, Tata Center of Excellence, Park Hyatt, Chennai, Lila Hotel-Delhi, Bangalore and many more

She says. “When I paint, you see not what I have made but what you want to see.” “I,” Seema Kohli, painter and teller of stories, “am both myth and reality. Pick the one you want, but remember, the mirror distorts, and so the myth might be reality, and reality myth.”

The present one is an item from her Hiranyagarbha Koham(golden womb) series. The Artist obliged ‘Ka Jingshai- The Light’ by letting it publish this painting, the concept of which seemed to be similar in connotation with the Khasi legend of creation.
