Words of Silence

Saturday, 20th April - Friday, 10th May

When we look at any work of art we try to understand it through words, these words are in turn provoked by the images we are looking at. These are silent words that are provoked during an interactive dialogue with the work of art. Just like this, all images are continuously being translated in to words and all words signal an image. This relationship between words and images are ever lasting and synergistic. The manner in which these interpretations are inspired in the mind, almost effortlessly, is the beauty of any work of art. It stimulates a language to understand, to make a relationship with the unknown. This is an unfolding of the mystery created by an artist. 

In this group exhibition there are painters, printmakers, sculptors, ceramists and some installation artists too. Zarina Hashmi is well known for her search through the memory of lines and forms of her lost paradise i.e. her home. Contrastingly, Sheetal Gattani's wanderings are always with a sense of surprise, allowing the viewer to explore the tones and its delicate variations in their own way. Sharad Sonkusale and Nitish Bhattacharjje play with a more geometric and organic approach towards forms. Divya Patwa works with animals and creating awareness through her bold and practical expression, while on the other hand Durgaprasad bandi is more concerned with shaking the existing image of the world around him. Despite the show being so varied in concepts and mediums, all of the works communicate something personal to the viewer. Each takeaway, interpretation and understanding is different. Through this show we invite people to come and communicate with the art through the eternally important Words of Silence.
