January 13 @ 10:00 am - February 10 @ 6:00 pm IST
Nature Morte will be presenting Dhruvi Acharya’s solo exhibition at the gallery in Neeti Bagh. The show is titled “permeated absence” for which the Opening Reception is on the 11th of Jan and the show opens to the public for viewing from the 13th of Jan. The gallery remains open Monday to Saturday from 10 AM till 6 PM. There is no entry fee.
A group of major new paintings will complete the exhibition. Continuing with Acharya’s figurative language, these new paintings explore the negotiations that take place in the artist’s mind in order to get through life. They also address the gnawing awareness she feels of her own mortality, juxtaposed with the “joys” of navigating life and the world as a middle-aged female. The paintings are darker and more sinister than her earlier works, often involving complex patterns that may allude to psychological states.
