A journey with Randhini

Randhini Fernando’s exhibition of paintings “Shades of Lanka” will be held at the Lionel Wendt Art Gallery, Colombo on September 25 and 26 from 9 a.m – 8 p.m.

Randhini, an AL science student of St. Bridget’s Convent, has been painting since she was very young . No doubt she has been inspired by her father Dr. Jayaindra Fernando, himself an artist, and an encouraging mother Thivanshi, the author of “Fruits of Sri Lanka”, as well as the legacy of her great grandmother Dorothy Fernando of “Wild Flowers of Ceylon” fame. Randhini provided some of the illustrations for “Fame and Pain – Medical stories of 100 famous people” authored by her father in 2009.

Her content comes from Sri Lanka’s varied and beautiful scenic and natural heritage. Thus Randhini’s exhibition of 40 paintings takes the viewer through a journey around the country including Palmyra palms of Puttalam, foliage and the cascades of Sinharaja, stupa at Anuradhapura, shimmering oceans at Trincomalee, open spaces of Horton Plains, Dutch fort in Galle and wild life at Yala. Birds such as the paradise flycatcher, flowers such as Na and a few fruits give variation to the catalogue.

Randhini has used the medium of soft pastels for this exhibition which is not the easiest of media to handle. In addition to her artistic talent, she plays the piano, cello and guitar and also sings. The exhibition will be opened by Hiran Cooray, Chairman of Jetwing Hotels Ltd and current Chairman of PATA –  (Pacific Asia Travel Association).
