October 2nd – 25th
Kamla Kakaria
Paisley Fish

Opening reception Thursday, October 2nd, 5-8 P.M.

Last summer I was incapacitated by hip replacement surgery and my boyfriend was similarly affected by back surgery.  Since we’d sit outside all day staring into his non-functional algae-coated swimming pool, we decided to populate it with a few hundred goldfish.  Obsessively, we watched them swim and grow.  Their progress became our primary form of entertainment.  Their movements filled my waking and sleeping thoughts. I started to draw and paint them.  In doing so my Indian cultural roots emerged and the fish took the form of decorative paisley pattern.
