This is not all though! The multi-talented Rashmi Pitre, apart from being all of the above, is essentially an artist and popular television and theatre actress.
Let’s talk about Rashmi Pitre, the artist, for now! Her sublime paintings are abstract and semi-abstract and revolve around the theme of nature and its elements. And, her solo exhibition of paintings, titled, ‘Inscapes’, is scheduled for October 15th to 21st, 2018, at the Jehangir Art Gallery, Mumbai.
The latest series of her work, ‘Inscapes’, are abstracts on canvas and are a clear depiction of nature blended with human emotions and spirituality. The elements of peace, silence, mystery abound the landscape and seascape creations by Rashmi Pitre.
The young artist believes in keeping most of her work untitled as to keep them open to various interpretations rather than arresting them and putting them into pre-conceived brackets. This enables the viewer to see his own moods and the reflections of his expressions in her paintings. The various mesmerizing moods that the sea depicts at different times is captured beautifully in the paintings by Rashmi Pitre.
Rashmi loves to use bright colours. However, the use of blues and greens in subtle pastel shades and the grey palette is also extensively seen in her work. Her style of painting is contemporary, with oil and acrylic on canvas as the mediums of choice.
Little surprise that she has her work installed in many corporate offices and residential complexes in India and abroad.
Rashmi Pitre has exhibited her paintings in India, Canada and the USA in several shows and has won several accoladed and recognition. In 2017, she received the Government’s Mumbai Mayor Award. She donates part proceeds from the sale of her work to several foundations as part of her social responsibility. Talk about having her heart in the right place!
