“After the fall, comes winter, spring and summer – nothing is permanent,”
A solo exhibition titled ‘After the Fall’ presenting the works of well-known artist Dhruvi Acharya is on view at Chemould Prescott Road, Mumbai from October 15 through November 19, 2016.
A little something about the artist Dhruvi Acharya – She is an Indian artist, known for her psychologically complex and visually layered paintings, often accented with dark humour.
The evening of October 14th was magical!! It was the preview of her solo exhibition . I was super excited to be there as the theme of her work, ‘After the fall’ spoke to me .When you enter the gallery, you start relating to the paintings as if they are depicting your own experiences. In her new paintings and a large site specific soft-sculptural installation, artist Dhruvi Acharya tries to investigate what happens to the mind, body and soul when one experiences that which is unfathomable, irreversible and unpredictable. The visual detailing in Acharya’s work makes viewers to reflect on their own experiences and sentiments.
The famed Mumbai artist’s show explores the journey of reconstructing the self after loss.
Here are a few of her exhibits..
One part of the Gallery Chemould transformed into a bedroom for the viewer to walk into memory. The soft sculptural bed has a layered fabric bedspread on which the artist has painstakingly drawn her memories of her marital life—including her late filmmaker husband, Manish, and her Over 2,000 pen and pencil drawings made by the artist covers the walls of the bedroom—the installation evokes over 20 years of the artist’s memories, her journey, her love, her loss.
