Introduction: The Exhibition ‘Golden Womb - Dawn of Time’ brings together a select compilation of artist Seema Kohli’s works in varied media, exploring the perpetual renewal of life and a celebration of the feminine aspect in multidimensional forms. Seema Kohli’s practice, over the years, has embraced diversity and evolved through many different experiences; while being positioned in the contemporary space, it remains deeply connected to knowledge embedded in ancient scriptures, mythology and broader cultural history. Her visual narratives connect the microcosm to the macrocosm, as she contemplates on the Self, the creation of the universe, time and space, energy and sustenance, life and death.Swirling, dynamic colours, free-flowing forms and rhythmic pattern epitomise the emergence of new worlds.Pathways of connected thought can be traced through the paintings, sculptures, prints, poetry and performative acts, which jointly piece together the journey she has completed thus far; it also suggests the directions towards which she is headed. Her creative language moves vertically and laterally, growing and shaping itself to the constantly fluctuating world, while holding on to a core of truth, the HiranyaGarbha - Golden Womb.
Every moment of creativity is an awakening, and the artist shares with viewers this personal awakening through a world embodied in art.

For Kohli, her art is an engagement with the philosophical enquiry oflife.lt is through the visual language of art that she tries to grasp the metaphysical truth of existence and the cosmic energy that is responsible for all creation.
