Garba Griha III is a screen print in an edition of 30 by Chitra Merchant. Chitra’s landscapes use ancient Indian historical sites as a starting point from which Chitra develops imaginary structures that take on a life and logic of their own. Her works embody deeply felt responses to colour as seen through the eyes of India.
