and Raffaella Torresan
To see more of Raff's work go to
Patrick McCauley and painter Raffaella Torresan have produced in The Sea Palace Hotel
a group of nine paintings, three photographs and twenty poems which
explore their three week visit to Colaba in Mumbai, India, during
February 2016. The Sea Palace Hotel is just down the road from the Taj
Mahal Hotel, and the site of the Islamist terrorist killings in 2008.
The Gateway To India, a huge and magnificent arch built by the Indians
to welcome the English and The East India Company to India, was also
the place where Raff camped for a few weeks free accommodation - back
in the mists of time, when she was on the hippy trail.
