Ruchita Commissions Paintings

News Posted on Fri, March 28, 2014 13:13:55

Another fabulous announcement to make……
Ruchita, a well known and loved restaurant here in Earlswood (right next to the station) commissioned a collection of paintings which are now hung and on display for all to see. If you find yourself in the neighbourhood and in need of sustenance, then stop in for a delectable curry, cool beverage and admire the art work.
The first part of the collection consists of four paintings that line the wall at the rear of the restaurant complete with a plaque which reads:

SPICE & ICE
This collection of paintings was commissioned by Ruchita in
2013. The theme for these works was inspired by Indian textiles and
incorporates the use of spicy, fiery colours: turmeric and paprika contrasting
with the refreshing, cool colours of water and ice. Orange and blue are
complementary colours just as refreshing drinks complement Ruchita’s
beautifully spiced cuisine. Pattern and design includes the use of well
recognised motifs such as the ‘buta’ or tree of life, otherwise known in the UK
as ‘paisley’ (adopted by textile manufacturers in Scotland).

The second part of the collection comprises of one large canvas on the wall opposite the entrance and the plaque for that reads as follows:

DELIGHT
Ruchita, meaning ‘well-loved’, routed closely in the Sanskrit word Ruchikara which means ‘a taste for’ or ‘penchant for’, a ‘love of’ or ‘appetite for’. This painting, commissioned by Ruchita restaurant in 2014 is an addition to delighting the senses, revelling in the exquisite, celebrating taste and the love of good food. Design elements incorporated into this painting are inspired by Indian textiles and saris mostly from Bangladesh and includes the use of sand texture paste, embossing, glitter, sequins and gem stones to convey a sense of divine opulence and indulgence.

Ruchita can be found on Facebook and their website is www.ruchita.co.uk
