GYPSY BRIDE SERIES:
In an age were ceremony is dictated by the undertones of modern culture, the exhibition, Gypsy Bride by Raziah Roushan asks the viewer to reexamine the heart of matrimony. In a series of oil paintings, presented as a cubist exploration, Roushan juxtaposes iconographic symbols of white picket fences, blown-out candles, turning cogs and toads alongside lanky bride-inspired figures to weave into each painting the series’ hypothesis – “What is the real cost of marriage? Not the financial cost, but the compromise given up or gained by the commitment. What is the life cost of being in a committed relationship?”
