"Rebloom" captures the essence of pandemic experiences through acrylic works on handmade paper, distinguished into two thematic collections. The smaller group consists of four intricate thread-and-weft drawings in black, reminiscent of the artist's solitary bike rides through an empty city. The handmade paper's textured white backdrop is interwoven with varying black threads, symbolizing the city's streets, while larger dots and frayed ribbons suggest pandemic restrictions and the fleeting imprint of bicycle tires, respectively, evoking a haunting shadow-filled urban landscape.

To bloom to die, to die to bloom again

“I paint intuitively, every stroke heightening the anticipation, every scratch fuelling the excitement.” – Babita Das

Amid India's two-year lockdown, Kolkata's Babita Das turned to cycling for calm, inspiring her "Rebloom" series: a mix of acrylics on handmade paper divided into two themes. Four pieces with intricate black thread imitate her solitary rides through a desolate cityscape, portraying lockdown's limits alongside the liberation of cycling. The body of work, alive with Babita's characteristic vibrant hues and monochromatic floral influences, serves as a poignant commentary on the tranquility found in a world paused by the pandemic. Her daily painting ritual throughout this quiet period is encapsulated in "Rebloom," illustrating her reflective bond with her art and environment.
