As the Paint Brush Replaces The Stethoscope
A Woman’s Journey, Solo Exhibition by Dr. Vasu Tolia
Written by: Anu Gopalakrishnan for Miindia.com
The Scarab Club located in one of the historic and magnificent districts in Detroit was a treat to several art lovers as Dr. Vasundhara Tolia, a Pediatric Gastroenterologist displayed her creative work under the poetic theme of “A Woman’s Journey”. The series of art exhibits displayed the myriad angles of a woman – from a grandmother, mother, sister, daughter to a wife, daughter-in-law, a working professional, a beloved, a healer a lonesome lover and a corporate star! The paintings depicted the various moods of a woman.
The colorful treat showed Dr. Tolia’s soulful journey encountering many diverse experiences from modern to traditional – some picked from her life and some that she has witnessed. There was humor too as two paintings aptly named Temptation 1 and Temptation 2 reflected how Sandals and Bags have come to be a part of a woman’s personality. Her art captured and gave equal focus on women coming from all strata of life. The art exhibit was a bold interpretation as it displayed nudity as a natural creation rather than a sexual interpretation.
The ambiance was architecturally splendid, as Dr. Vasu Tolia very calmly with a beautiful voice explained every instance of the exhibit to onlookers. Her works are mainly in acrylic, mixed media and occasionally oil. Do not miss this serene beauty in Detroit!
