Past Events

White color is the color which could be achieved by restraining desire. For 500 years during the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910), palaces and nobles gave up the pleasure of seeing various colors and insisted on using ascetic white tableware and ceramics. It was due to the influence of Confucianism and The people in the Joseon Dynasty came to enjoy the unobtrusive and modest beauty.

In India, leaders of the independence movement significantly inspired workers to join hands with vast sections of society to become part of the freedom struggle. Ahmedabad was a crucial site in shaping the future of the national labour cause, with Gandhi leading the strike of textile workers in 1918 alongside Anasuya Sarabhai.

મહાત્મા ગાંધી માનતા હતા કે સ્વરાજના શાંતિપૂર્ણ આંદોલન માં ભારતની સ્ત્રીઓ પુરુષો કરતાં ઘણી આગળ નીકળી જવાની ક્ષમતા ધરાવે છે. એમણે ભારતની લાખો સ્ત્રીઓને પ્રેરણા આપી: એમણે માત્ર સ્વતંત્રતાની ચળવળમાં જોડાવાનું જ નથી, પરંતુ સત્યાગ્રહમાં મોખરે રહીને આગેવાની કરવાની છે.

The presentation concerns the concept of “prior art” in intellectual property rights law and whether colours can be copyrighted and therefore plagiarized. Colour will be considered as a universal gift (asset) and held in “escrow” – i.e., not belonging to anyone.

The second pandemic summer was an isolated one for me, even more so than the first one. It was also a time of great restlessness and churning. It just so happened that as I began working on some unfinished works in my studio, this restless churning slowly found a rhythm and the following three months became the most prolific in my 10 years of practice as a sculptor. Like everything that happened over the summer, Indigo too was an encounter beyond my control

Echoes of Colour

18 September, 2021

As the voice speaks, its murmuring sounds turn into reflection. Against the unbearable absolute of determinacy, it wants to posit an ecology of ambiguity that may assist cybernetic agents to enact the ever fluid echoes of emotional exchanges on the anthropocosmic stage of becoming.

My painting process has gone through an interesting metamorphosis through years; one crucial aspect of the myriad discoveries along the way is my adherence to the colour theory. Taking cues from Picasso’s Blue Period paintings, and Alice Neel’s expressionistic colour application in the figurative art among other influences, most recently I dug deeper into the nuances of colour in the series of works focussing on mundane, commonplace objects.
