Successful exhibition by Yasodhara Pathanjali
Nature: through the eyes of love and faith, proved to be a very successful first show for Yasodhara Pathanjali. Even though the event was held over two working days, many fans and visitors attended the exhibition to view the work of this British Sri Lankan artist, with some fans traveling from as far as Birmingham.

The show was presented in a quirky fashion, with the unframed pieces hung on white wooden strips, somewhat resembling the traditional Sesatha, a colourful brick supporting each strip. Jasmine flower garlands adorned the whole space, adding another sensory dimension to an exhibition already so rich in texture. One visitor commented "I have never seen anything like this. It is truly remarkable."

Of the two-day event Yasodhara said "It was wonderful to see all my work hung up and hear all the reactions from those who attended. My work seem to evoke very strong feelings in people and I really enjoyed discussing these with the visitors. I feel very lucky to have had this experience, to have the commissions that have been requested and really can't wait for my next show in Colombo."

Yasodhara Pathanjali is relocating to Colombo this week, leaving behind the country that she grew up in, as she plans to give her two daughters a more Sri Lankan up-bringing. She is taking that opportunity to get involved in working with orphans in Sri Lanka, the first step being buying art materials with the money raised from selling the painted bricks at her exhibition. "I have always been passionate about children and education, which is why I home-educate my two girls. But I want to help those children who are not getting the best start in life, and I hope that selling the painted bricks is the first step in a lifelong journey."
