Art Konsult Presents ‘Miles Ahead And More To Travel’ By Dr Sushma Yadav

The exhibition will continue to 10th March 2023 at India Habitat Centre, New Delhi


Art Konsult is going to present a solo exhibition by Dr. Sushma Yadav and curated by Jyoti A Kathpalia. It started on the 1st of March and will continue until the 10th of March 2023. Dr. Sushma Yadav’s solo exhibition of etchings is a pictorial journey of a woman artist as she traverses emotional and physical realms, between the crowds and the self, with each milestone, each etching, evocatively rife with artistic achievement and telling the story of humanity through the imaginative lens of a woman.

She is a highly accomplished printmaker. The eminent, veteran printmaker Anupam Sud has been her mentor and guide under whose tutelage Dr. Sushma Yadav has learned the finer aspects of printmaking and honed her skills. It is therefore not surprising that her etchings display a remarkable level of sophistication and a strong conceptual grasp of both technique and subject. The arduous and extremely meticulous technique of printmaking and etching that Dr. Sushma specialises in, has required tremendous dedication and sustained efforts over a number of years working in her studio. Having completed a stupendous body of work at this young age excelling in artistic innovation and skill, Dr. Sushma Yadav is at an extremely exciting juncture in the Indian printmaking scape today.


Her detailed and minute almost mathematical preplanning delicately synergises with creative, intuitive genius. The balancing and symmetry of light and dark, the highlights, and the textures, all come together to make beautiful poetry in black and white. The idea of composition, the reverse symmetry, lines, shadow, and depth are woven into a symphony of lines and shadows. In the words of the artist Sushma Yadav, “Etching is a black and white medium and I saw everything in two parts so much so that I dream also in two tones!” 

One of the most distinctive and definitive attributes of the artist are her big etching works - working on two plates and three plates together which involves continually working on the plates together for extended periods of time so as to maintain tonal and visual agreement.
