During the last eleven months I have studied the methodology of Paubha, the traditional painting form indigenous to the Kathmandu Valley, with Master Painter Lok Chitrakar. I have learned to paint leaves from stone, make canvas from buffalo skin, and create a sky from hair-thin lines. Employing the tenets set by traditional practices and iconographical reference, the body of work I created explores the ritualistic landscape of Nepal. This richly illustrated presentation will introduce the audience to the history and process of Paubha and show the work made during my Fulbright grant.
