Time confounds and illuminates. While most people
think of time as a constant, physicist
Albert Einstein showed that time is an illusion; it
is relative — it can vary for different observers
depending on your speed through space. To
Einstein, time is the “fourth dimension. This series
represents traveling - backwards and forwards
through time.

From the wish list of making it shift gears to
the yearning of slowing it down… There has
been a time in our lives where we have
wished to alter its speed to suit our singular
requirement or the need of the hour.
Till the time, it becomes a reality, may we
present a possible option of time travelling—
with Nanda Khiara”s timeless series aptly
titled “Time. Travel”With six paintings;

What is time? Why is it so crucial? Is it the
unit of time that we try to control the
memories associated with it? What is happy
time vis-à-vis sad time, good time vs. bad
time? Albeit the unit of time remains
unaffected, it is the association of memories
that brans it as good or bad.

With this understanding and more
importantly the comprehension of our
inability to affect time, we are exposed to
another revolutionary thought—of travelling
through time. Interesting it seems. Yes, it
does. Think of a world where there are doors,
leading us into the future or the past, at our
will, freely. Well, while physics has made
some headway into it, it is far from being
even on a beta stage.

Life…. This series luminously confines yet
lets the concept of time and the moments
associated with it flow liberally. Using black
color as the unifying thread, Nanda uses
large canvases to capture the essence of
eternal emotions through a set of varied eyes
—sane, flamboyant, sunny, travellers and
her own. The visual symmetry coupled with
master jagged edge stroke, very aptly
captures the true essence of time.
