Meet An Artist - Priti Vadakkath

Priti Vadakkath is one of the prominent artists I have come across in Kochi in the recent times. Her works, though not drenched in colours, have an alluring quality to it and it very often makes a subtle expression of the inner workings of the self…illuminating the margins, as she says! Haunting and exuberantly innocent, her works attest her longing for the past and the doleful doldrums of the present. It sways back and forth making a statement of her own…an effective one at that!

Today's Meet An Artist is different from my usuals as it is the first recorded one - an audio. I met Priti at her lovely, sun-lit, gorgeous, high-roofed, ancestral-look-alike villa in Thevara. We met, had an amazing 'friendly' conversation; I wouldn't call it a proper interview as I think we both  got immersed in our talk and forgot about the recording  that had been going on, quite often! Initially, we both were very aware of it though. The conversation was recorded in her Studio and a couple of her paintings were put up there and we were pointing and talking about it as you can make out from our conversation at certain times.

Since this is my first try and no editing has gone into it except in two spaces where I have tried my hand at it, there may be errors, all sorts of issues of a non-pro recording...please do bear with me...please do listen to the audio and do leave me your valuable feedback.
Thanks dear friends for taking your time out, to drop by and to leave your heart-warming comments... each time, every time!

So here's the audio, please do lend me your ears...
