Shraddha Rathi explores the concept of gratitude, an expressive emotion towards an appreciation of life and for tangible and intangible gifts, in her new suite of works. She creates a narrative which is rich in emotional content and universal in its reach. From personal notes to community messages, the expanse of storytelling weaves a rich tapestry of chronicles, patterns and motifs of human sentiments, moments and memories.

When Didi Menendez, publisher of PoetsArtists Magazine, invited me back to curate a special edition for the second time, I jumped at the opportunity without hesitation. Curating Idiosyncratic Monochromes in 2017 was a tremendously enriching experience for me, especially because that issue was so well received.
This time, to juxtapose the previous monochromatic theme, I chose Glorious Color as the starring leitmotif and published a call for submissions asking for paintings and drawings created in vivid, bright, intense colors. My objective: To publish a spectacular anthology of realist artwork expressed in vivaciously flamboyant color schemes that will show the artists’ bold and intrepid use of a variety of polychrome palettes that will wow the reader.
