SIONA BENJAMIN-JEWISH LITERARY & CULTURAL ARTS SERIES
Artist | Sunday, October 7–Tuesday, October 9
Originally from Bombay, Siona now lives in the US. Her work reflects her background of being brought up Jewish in a predominantly Hindu and Muslim India.
In her paintings, she combines the imagery of her past with the role she plays in America today, making a mosaic inspired by both Indian miniature paintings and Sephardic icons. Siona has been awarded a Fulbright Fellowship for a project titled, “Faces: Weaving Indian Jewish Narratives.” Her work has been featured in The New York Times, The Chicago Tribune, The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Jewish Week in NYC and NJ, The Boston Globe, Art in America, Art New England, Art and Antiques and Moment Magazine.
