GALLERYSKE is pleased to present ‘Everything/Nothing’ an exh ibition of paintings by two artists\,
Luigi Anastasio and Prabhavathi Meppayil.
Luigi Anastasio draws from the idea of the mind as mirror\, reflecting with openness\, inherently unconstrained\, cognizant\, aware and fluid. His paintings on paperboard evoke the mind in its natural state\; t he assertion of its form being emptiness and emptiness being its form. The works in ‘Everything/Nothing’ originate from Anastasio’s deep respect for I ndian culture.
The lime gesso panels of Prabhavathi Meppayil are the p roduct of a self-‐ dissolving\, repetitive process. The goldsmith’s tool ma rks and thin copper wire impressed within her works embed ‘time’ into the g esso panels\; a means to capture the meditative practice of making with no designed end. Meppayil explores the idea of liberation through the meticulo us process-‐ oriented nature of her works.

About
Luigi Anastas io first traveled to India inspired by two ideas: the first being the claim made by Marcel Duchamp in a final interview where he concluded that he had done “nothing” during the course of his life. The second idea was the prac tice of ancient Buddhist monks in Korea to inscribe single or multiple poem s to summarize their lives and their learning on the walls of the caves in which they
dwelt. While in India\, he came to understand that “the ‘no thing’ that Duchamp referred to represented emptiness while the poems of th e monks represented the perfect minimalism”. His works are deeply influence d by his time spent in India.
Anastasio was born in Rome in 1961. He o btained a Diploma at Art School Collegium in 1979. In 1981 he completed a p ost Academy Course at Shantiniketan\, Visva Bharati. His works have feature d in a solo show at Sakshi\, Bangalore in 2002 and have also shown in New Y ork and New Delhi. More recently\, Anastasio’s works featured in the Synest hesia show at GALLERYSKE in 2011. He has spent many years in India and now lives and works in Rome\, Italy.
