This exhibition features the works of nine stellar artists whose works explore the many nuances afforded by the medium of paper. While Jignesh, Sachin George and Sachin Tekade use mostly pristine white paper for their architectural and natural forms, Chetnaa works also are cut, perforated and stuck together in a geometric pattern conforming to my abstract minimalist musings on paper. It's the play of light, fleeting transitions and an endless labyrinth of myriad shadows that has inspired her to create these works.
Sudipta sculpts paper to create exceedingly powerful installations, which are (also) a playful comment on society. Shormii on the other hand is very much attracted to the paper scroll as a format and has done many works with tempera and water colours where the scroll format is used for storytelling through the unfolding of events and people.
Aisha believes that there is no difference between the personal and the political, she starts working on blank white pages, which resembles the daily diary and records day to day short lived memories, lived moments, pains and pleasures, claustrophobic images filled with text spreading like a contagious virus. The emotional turmoil within her is narrated on pages and become a Political phrase. Gopika uses old books to explore the idea of recycling memories, the residue of the past imposing itself on the present, the stains of history on the pages of today.
The exhibition includes a suite of 2 to 6 new works by each artist. The artists invited to participate in this exhibition are Aisha A Hussain, Chetnaa, Ganesh Selvaraj, Gopika Chowfla, Jignesh Panchal, Sachin Tekade, Sachin George Sebastian, Sudipta Das and Shormii Chowdhury.
