This distinctive exhibition - the first one-woman show in Britain by Indian/Danish artist Neeta Pedersen – explores the world of her imagination, which is dominated by feminine sensuality, sexuality, energy and emotion. She expresses these feelings in many media and the exhibition showcases a significant number of new paintings alongside her popular digital prints, her unique sculptures and a short animated film entitled ‘Goddess’.
Her work ranges from the highly decorative and romantic to the stark and explicit and her unique style has gained her an international reputation. Her work has been shown in leading galleries in Denmark and England including London’s Cork Street and is held in private collections in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, France, Canada, USA and England.
*
Neeta’s remarkable real-life experiences have had a big effect on her artistic career. Born in Mumbai and adopted by a Danish couple at the age of six months, Neeta grew up in Aarhus and began drawing at an early age. Leaving home at 17, she worked on an Israeli kibbutz and subsequently travelled to India and Nepal for six months to absorb and observe the culture she came from. Her extensive travelling has also taken her to France, Germany, Central Europe, Scandinavia as well as Boston and New York in the US.
In 1997, she moved to Lewes and studied at Brighton College of Technology, where she gained a BTEC National Diploma in Multimedia. In 1999, she enrolled in the Total Immersion Intensive Workshop at the New York Film Academy and, in 2005, gained a BA (Hons) in Animation from the University of Westminster in London. Her graduation film ‘Disharmonious Coincidence’ was subsequently screened at film festivals in London, Italy, Japan, France and Romania and was selected by British Council Film to be included in their British Films Directory.

Lewes Arts Interview

Review: The Goddess Within, Neeta Pedersen by Lucy Finchett Maddock
The HOP gallery in Lewes is temporarily home to one of the most distinctive and inspiring local artists, Neeta Pederson. Neeta has a patch-worked history of cultures and experiences through travel and family circumstances, originally born in Mumbai and then adopted by a Danish couple when she was a baby. The emotion and awareness that Neeta no doubt has immersed herself in through traversing alternating values and traditions, has brought about a unique style that suggests a love of the human form, relations, nature, and sensuality.
 
As soon as you walk in to the HOP Gallery space, you are drawn to the very large, mesmeric canvases opposite, of undulating female flesh, emanating fragility and in some instances, a severe dominating sexuality. If you are a keen appreciator of romantic and surreal visions of the female form, then this is a delightful and yet serious vision of femininity before your eyes, a reminder of a slightly more ordered side to sexual desire, and yet at the same time, projecting beauty in a sensory motion that draws you into the paintings. The richness of the blacks, the bronzes, the aquamarines, and the almost radiating duck egg blue of a butterfly or the scarlet wings of a ladybird bumbling along the ornate surfaces, stand out like crimson flares of flora in the dark and eerie purple before an electric storm. The additions from the natural world are like a levelling out of beauty and aesthetic calm between the human, the animal and the black silhouetted forms of apples, the tendrils of trees; the gravity of the black crow. The pictures communicate movement, a definitely romantic, perhaps Art Nouveau-esque, psychedelia of chrome, expressing energies, emotions, siren-like longings. Neeta is obviously also highly attuned to musical influences, some of her paintings depicting scores, treble clefs, crotchets and quavers, resounding the Art Deco jazz influence in style.
 
The most provocative of Neeta’s work is hidden round the corner, obviously moved out of the way for those of a fainter heart. With touches of sado-masochism, there are fetish bodies swinging in chains and variant depictions of phalluses and all things Freudian. Apparently the local council weren’t sure about that more overt part of Neeta’s work being on display, hence it screened by one of the gallery’s partitions from the rest of the collection!
 
Neeta works in a range of media, her bronze sculptures reminiscent of a Klimt-esque kiss, the bejewelled bodies interlacing in the everlasting embrace. Her work is for sale in print and digital form with her forms fitting graphics perfectly, the repetition and the black contours in her work, adding additional ranges of colours and subjects such as skulls and the use of the monochrome chess board.
 
Neeta’s work is rich, enticing, and quite frankly beautiful, a delectable experience and worth a highly recommended visit to the Hop Gallery these next few weeks.
