This painting is inspired by Ragas from Indian classical music and miniature art.

The painting is rooted in the sacred essence of a raga – five or more musical notes upon which a melody is played. More than just a sound, a raga evokes an emotional response in the listener; and suggests the mood of the raga which is love.

Salma’s work takes inspiration from the intricate workmanship of Indian miniatures and presents a traditional art form in contemporary style and materials.
