Images of Freedom

Amrit and Rabindra K.D.Kaur Singh


The authors, Amrit and Rabindra K.D. Kaur Singh, are well-known miniaturists, called The Twins. They work at their Twin Studios in England. Their work blends elements from Western and Eastern aesthetics to create a unique genre within British art practice, challenging existing stereotypes in contemporary art and exploring cultural, social and political issues. All this is achieved within a highly decorative, often witty and symbolic style, which has universal appeal and transcends cultural barriers. Their determined exploration of the Indian miniature style and established practice of working and exhibiting together – as well as dressing identically – is a political statement against the Eurocentric perspective of Modern Art.

They continue to be invited to present academic lectures on their work and have received wide interest within the educational context – from individual art students to University research graduates – with one of their major pieces being incorporated into the Open University syllabus. Official artists-in-residence to the Commonwealth Games, they have been commissioned by Leeds City Art Gallery to produce a series in response to a key painting in their collection, which represents a Victorian piece of propaganda on the Indian Mutiny.

images of Freedom
A visual narration of India’s history in the first few tumultuous decades of the last century, this is a compilation of 50 prints with their corresponding textual references. It takes a look at the popular visual documentation of India’s journey through freedom struggle, to independence and partition, and the years immediately subsequent to it. At one level, the collection testifies to the crucial role played by what we call the “calendar art” in disseminating the spirit of nationalism across the country. It is conveyed here as a two-pronged process: the first dealing with the creation of a popular imagery for the masses to identify with; and secondly, the gradual perpetuation of these idioms – that haven’t lost their connotation even till this day.
