In a fine assimilation of abstraction, myth, landscapeand conceptualization, Rini Dhumal’s art is threaded with the face, form and figuration of the ‘goddess’ in various incarnations of Rini’s own design. With its focus on the feminine psyche, her art explores the opportunities offered by different media, from twoor three-dimensional work in clay or bronze, relief or graphic art. This book is an attempt to understand and appreciate the dramatis persona, and take the reader through the various stages of her life and work.
