Pictorial Dialogues by Nayanaa Kanodia
Ranjit Hoskote


Nayanaa Kanodia approaches the history of art in a spirit of playful homage. Her chosen instruments are an attentive irreverence that is never destructive, a gift for understated comedy, and a conviction that art and life can interweave in the most remarkable ways.
