Pushpita’s work swirls with energy: darting and surprising, leaping and resting, comforting and challenging. Energy which, it was my role to find melody and harmony, to bring together in such a way as the work would flow with the ease of the Ganges, intrinsic to the soul of humanity, of the planet, and of the universe. This collection is therefore, a journey - a spiritual, philosophical, and human journey.”

From Editing Echoes by Trevor Maynard, © 2016

 

“Through the twin themes of Nature and Love, Pushpita’s work not only illuminates humanity as a whole, but her own human relationship with the human world. These elements of being human are interwoven skilfully, creating a poetic expression that has depth, articulates understanding, and possesses empathy.”
