About Bhavani G.S:
Bhavani G S is someone who does not need much of an introduction to the people in the field of photography, art and nature aficionados in the garden city. She is possibly most renowned for her work on the River Cauvery, called “Journey with the River Cauvery”, which is a lyrically beautiful documentary shot by her during her solo journey from Madikeri to Poompuhar, following the great river, and capturing the myriad moods of the river and the people who live around it, and exploring her very personal relationship with this river as well.
The work she does in different media has the common theme of an exploration of Nature & its textures, order, structure and matter of the natural world. She lists the primal forests of Kodagu as one of her most deep influences; in her own words, “It is here on the forest floor that my sensitivity as an artist blossoms, it merges with each leaf, grasses, flower, wood , clay, sand, every single pod of seed that seems to bare its inner self to me. I attempt to experience the landscape, observe and feel it physically. I try to relate to the qualities and energies of that place and evoke the same in my work.”
Bhavani G.S. completed her postGraduate degree in Painting from Chitrakala Parishat Bangalore, Karnataka in 2003. She was the recipient of Junior fellowship- Culture Department, Lalithakala Academy Scholarship, Arnavaz Vasudev Scholarship for 2004 and 2005, the Nagarathnamma memorial trust Scholarship, the Akila Bharatiya Vidya Parishad award and Robert Bosch grant-Bengaluru. She was on residency in Sri Lanka and 1shanti road Bangalore.
