About ArtistRekha Rodwittiya has studied painting at the Faculty of Fine Arts, Baroda (B.A. fine 1981), and at the Royal College of Art, London (MA 1984, on the Inlaks Scholarship). She held her first solo show in 1982 in Baroda, and has subsequently held nineteen solo shows in New Delhi, Bombay, Madras, Stockholm, Bangalore and Calcutta. Her work has been included in several group exhibitions in India and internationally, including the VI International Triennial, New Delhi (1986), India in Switzerland: Six Young Contemporaries, Geneva (1 987), Dialogues of Peace, Geneva to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the United Nations, Geneva (1 955), and Inside Out: Women Artists of India, touring exhibition in the UK (1995-96). The representation of the female figure has been a paramount concern for her, even as it has been significant for several feminist artists. Rodwittiya has been consistently working with the problem of representing the female form in a way that does not allow voyeuristic participation from the onlooker. Rekha Rodwittiya lives and works in Baroda.
