Arpita Singh has always conceived her vocation as an artist as being attentive to language and to the world; And this is the double mandate of Deepak Ananth's monograph on this major figure in contemporary Indian art.

Play and reverie, the distinctive features of Arpita Singh's art, have also proved to be the subversive agents of the sly pictorial universe that she has elaborated over the last four decades. The ludic impulse has been her way of negotiating the vicissitudes of female subjectivity even as it is a superior ruse for confronting the complexities of the world on her own terms. The freshness of her childlike vision is the elation of a painter who never ceases to marvel at the formal possibilities of her elected medium and the effect it might be made to yield.
