Neeta Madahar is a photographer and painter, specialising in traditional Indian Miniature painting. Her art is informed by her meditation practice, time in silence and solitude and spiritual insights from Buddhism and Taoism. She depicts elements of the natural world, engaging with ideas about beauty, truth, reality versus illusion, space and time. She takes pleasure in craft and acute detail.
Madahar graduated from Winchester School of Art with a BA in Fine Art in 1999 and from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts/Tufts University in Boston, US, with an MFA in Studio Art in 2003. She has exhibited internationally in group and solo shows, such as Aspex Gallery, Harewood House, and the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, US. She was awarded the 2008/09 Bradford Fellowship in Photography by the National Science and Media Museum. Madahar has received commissions from organisations including the Glynn Vivian Gallery, FACT, Film and Video Umbrella and Photoworks. Her work is held in collections such as the Government Art Collection, the Fogg Art Museum, the MIT Art Collection, the V&A Museum and the Yale Center for British Art.
