Perspectives from a Modern Indian Painter

Rupy C. Tut
June 17, 2023
10:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
Koret Education Center, Asian Art Museum, 200 Larkin Street, San Francisco
$15/person Society members; $20/person non-members after museum admission.

Artist Rupy Tut creates paintings on paper with handmade pigments, using traditional Indian painting techniques from the 18th century while also utilizing her own creative approaches, which are rooted in her and her family’s personal history and her relationship to that world. An oft occurring theme is the importance of being a woman and a mother. Her ability to express her feelings and emotions in her work draws the viewer completely into her world. Rupy will discuss her journey trying to build a contemporary portfolio with her traditional Indian training, which puts her on a challenging path as well as her goals for the present and future.

Some of her current work will also be on view for participants to look at and admire. Her paintings are in the collections of the Asian Art Museum, the De Young, the Institute of Contemporary Art San Francisco, and other galleries around the Bay area.
