Go inside the painting

By Dustin Findley

Vinita Munsani paints about common people doing everyday things, like work.

Everytime one looks at one the painted portraits, "I hope it tells a story by its expression" Munshani expressed.

"Some people are good with words, and some people are good with action, I think my way of expression is by painting. When I paint I portray my emotion as well as what I see" Munsani said.

She exaplined "In my paintings I try to tell the story of everyday people. My objective is to bring out their feeling, their aspirations, and their thoughts through my paintbrush."
The subjects are people who do not necessarily have a glamorous story to tell, but they do have something that we can all connect with.

Munsani has worked with clay, rope and hemp, plaster, wood, metal, but "I find painting the most satisfying."

When people stand in front of a painting Munsani wants the viewer to feel as if they want to go inside the picture "and see how that person is living."

In the work titled "Delight," a woman is just bathing a child, or holding a child, but she is so delighted by what she does, just being a mother.

Paintings are available for purchase, but all paintings will remain on display for the length of the exhibition at the Phantom Art Gallery.

"If you feel something emotionally I have done my job." Munshani said.

Munshani received a commendation from the City of Milpitas that states the following: The City of Milpitas wishes to commend you, Vinita Munshani, on your Phantom Art Gallery Exhibit "Expressions" debuting on June 1, 2009.
