Formation, acrylics on canvas, 36″ x 18″.
A month of layers, imprints, dots, missing pieces and colours. I think with this canvas I end the discovery paintings and head to the analysing ones- lots of issues to ponder upon, don’t know where to begin. It’s been a year (on 13 June, 2012) since I started treading on this path and I have loved every single moment of it- ups and downs, highs and lows.
A piece of good news, I have an exhibition coming up at Radcliffe & Newlands at Liverpool Street. This firm organized an Open Art Competition and my work (How long is so long?) got selected. 🙂 There is a preview on 5 July, 2012 starting 6 pm at 14 Bonhill Street, EC2A 4BX. So, friends and foes (!), please do come along.
Other art news, saw an exhibition curated by Jaishri Abichandani at Rossi & Rossi Gallery in Mayfair. The exhibition titled ‘Stargazing’ showed the works of Anita Dube, Chitra Ganesh, Mithu Sen, Nida Abidi and Jaishri herself- yes, a powerful feminist exhibition. I also got the opportunity to help a little for the installation of Anita Dube’s work so, meeting her and seeing her set up her work was a wonderful experience! Also, meeting the other artists and hearing them talk about their works, their concepts and their journey was inspiring and enriching indeed.
So, time to get down to brass tacks and start my work with a new gaze on the newly ordered canvases, all piled up in a corner of the room. Here I come!
