Kapadia’s long term engagement with the language of landscapes creates varied layers of her enquiry into the genre. Despite most academic exposure to the genre depicting landscapes of the West, she evolved a critical consciousness regarding the same. She delves further into the the Realist, Impressionist and Abstract expressions in landscapes as informing about the transforming identity of the postcolonial world in India.
