My Atelier and Gallery of Art , dedicated to the memory of my dear friend Joydeep Mukherji who chose to define his life’s journey with a magnanimous ,joyous and ever giving larger than life heart and spirit,resonating love,friendship and Joy amongst us all. We are truly blessed to have known him in his lifetime and today I am sure he is there in spirit to cheer us like he always does and we choose to celebrate his spirit with a laugh and a smile,even though our hearts are breaking.
My association with Joy was brief but fulfilling and his love for art was the string that brought us together. What surprised me was his curiosity,and deep understanding of colours, light, form and perspective and he would not tire of inspecting every detail of a painting till he made up his mind and in my case, he gave nine paintings the coveted wall space in his beloved home with a laugh and a Thank you “S”.
He gave immense value to my style of works, encouraged and complimented them, and today it is in that spirit that I dedicate my Gallery space to his ever joyous spirit naming it the ‘Garden of Joy’.I say Thank you Joy and wish you all the rainbow colours of the pallete, happiness, mirth and more and may you soar to greater heights in the gardens of stars and galaxies and continue to bless us. Thank you.
