ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

I loved watercolor very much since my childhood and till today. It is challenging technique that fascinates me that's why watercolor became one of my best medium. And in this "Return to Nature" Open Air workshop I've tried to capture the traditional beautiful old houses with wooden carved windows against with modern concrete houses that added recently. The Next Painting is a Stupa from Chilincho (name of the place) .The painting is documented with absence of ugly rod Iron bar. In both of my works I’ve used black ink Pen over the watercolor r paint which completes my work and not only satisfies but feed my soul while working in the spot.

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

Born on 1967 into a family of artists in Kathmandu, Neera (M.Sc. Botany) is probably the only botanical artist/illustrator/painter in Nepal. She was trained abroad at Marie Selby Botanical Garden, Florida and Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh. She has had her works exhibited in Nepal and widely in various parts of the globe.
Her approach of combining art and science first began in 1999 that was introduced in her book Flora from Kathmandu Valley. This was her first landmark exhibition and publication by Park Gallery in Kathmandu. Her later exhibitions include “International juried botanical Art Exhibition 2004”-American Society of Botanical Artists (ASBA), New York and “BISCOT 2007”-Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (RBGE), Scotland. Recently, her scientific botanical art work was featured in “Flora of Nepal”-Volume 3, 2011 published by RBGE. She has also presented scientific papers on botanical art and illustrations at national and international conferences.
Beside her academic excellence in Botanical Art, and beyond the accurate portrayal of botanical subjects, Neera exposes the soul of flowers on canvases in a different form of floral motifs in her own individual way. Her latest paintings on the concept of petals are distinct and are unique expression that unfolds the spiritual aspect of creativity. Therefore, it is her personal style that depicts the truthful essence of the organic world.
Her solo exhibitions “Colors of Sepals and Petals “2007, ‘’Petals 2008 “and ‘’Placid nuances 2012’’ were exhibited at Park Gallery, Kathmandu. The Second Solo featured the remarkable landscapes in water color titled "Jomsom to Muktinath” 2000.
