After years of traveling and documenting everyday life in India, Yatin Patel is set to launch his extraordinary series “Sutra,” a name with ancient Sanskrit Indo-Aryan origins meaning “a thread or line that holds elements together.” With his Sutra collection, Yatin reveals the beautiful textural fibers that are woven into the environments of present-day urban India, evocative of its ancient society and civilization at large. The works are printed with custom inks on rare hand-made Japanese rice paper. For the series, Yatin has partnered with Master Printer, Jon Cone, of Cone Editions Press. Cone is considered to be the first pioneer of digital printmaking. The large-scale exhibition makes its debut in Downtown Orlando and will be traveling internationally in 2012.
