Biography

Rekha was born in Bangalore in 1958, got a BA in Fine Arts in Baroda in 1981 and an MA in the same from the Royal College of Art in London in 1984. Rodwittiya has always been concerned with the representation of the female figure: she had sown the seeds for a feminist practice of painting during the course of her Fine Arts degree in Baroda. The resistence of her male contemporaries towards a new gender representation spurred her desire to find the vocabulary to represent women without objectifying them, without allowing the viewer to play the role of voyeur. Rodwittiya represents large clothed Gauginesque women as the archetypal figure in their daily work rituals, dwarfing their tools and objects that surround them, in a celebration of the female protagonist.
