Description

Passionate about the visual arts as she is about the magic of words, these 52 poems and 13 haikus are some of Bina Sarkar Ellias’s poems responding to images over many years. Her canvas spans India, the world and beyond and the book evokes encounters she has had with people, nature, art, photography, politics and emotions. A tapestry of poetry interspersed with paintings by classic masters of impressionist, post-impressionist, cubist and contemporary art, it is woven with perception and sensitivity. In her Introduction, the British poet Agnes Meadows says, “If art is a reflection of life, and poetry is a reflection of the breadth of human emotions, then ‘When Seeing Is Believing’ embraces the whole spectrum. It is a unique palette of observation and feeling you will want to savour by reading it more than once, uncovering new flavours each time you re-read.”

This book is supported by the Morarka Foundation and proceeds from its sales will be donated to the Missing Foundation and their effort to mentor and rehabilitate survivors of human trafficking.

Praise

These works of art and poems complement and enrich each other. It is as if the words of the poems suddenly give flesh to what is in the work of art, and it is hard to guess what came first.

—K. Satchidanandan
Indian poet, writer, playwright and literary critic

____________________________________________________________________

What [Ellias] sees is the depth, textures, and the inexhaustible plenitude of the painting, the sculpture, the installation, the video work. What she believes in, is the imperative to sustain one’s sense of beauty and resilience.

—Ranjit Hoskote
Indian poet, cultural theorist and curator
