Sosa Joseph (b. 1971)
Sosa got her Diploma in Painting, Raja Ravi Varma College of Fine Arts, Kerala, andPost-Graduate Diploma in Painting, M.S. University, Baroda. The artist investigatesthe emotional and spatial qualities of her environment and that of her personal life,blurring the boundaries between the two in works that have great visual impact.We confront the artist’s world of reality often crossed with fantasy. An addeddepth is proposed by the sensuality suggested by movements and textures. Thevisibility of layering underscores the importance of the painting process itself, whilethe mixing and re-mixing of her colors, enables her to achieve subtle chromaticand textural nuances with thin layers of paint.She has held solo exhibitions, The Common, Galerie Mirchandani + Steinruecke,Mumbai, 2009 and ‘Tenacity of theMoon’ at Kashi Art Gallery, Kochi, 2005.
