Jemisha Maadhavji

Jemisha Maadhavji’s paintings are a representation of herself, friends and strangers. Majority of the time the figures are in possession with a natural object such as a peacock feather or a rose, The reason leads to her interest in allegory and how every object decays but the peacock feather doesn’t,  it is immortal. The figures stand in front of a flat colored background so the figure is the center of attention. Jemisha is interested in the character and emotion of their connection with the object. Her approach is conservative to how women are represented now.  The work is created with oil paints on a range of surfaces, ranging from wood to metal. When the painting is complete Jemisha wants the audience to feel their presence.
