ADITI SINGH
A recurrent theme in Aditi Singh's drawings is the anatomy of flowers. Drawing flowers for over a decade they still co ntinue to \;enthral \;the artist\, or as she puts it: "At a cer tain moment a form chooses you and won't \;leave you in peace."&nb sp\;These flowers are not typically meant to decorate or beautify. They sur vive in extreme climate and their ephemeral character contradicts the tenac ious nature of their existence. The organic and geometric structure and the ir skeletal fragility point to the invisible mysteries inherent in natural phenomena. \;

\n

The process of sele cting the paper is an integral part of Aditi Singh's drawings. The paper ac ts both as space and skin. Skin that protects\, bears the traces of living by witnessing the process of evolution and dissolution. The paper's texture and materiality create a symbiosis with the subtle \;colours \;and shapes of the floral forms\, thus standing for the "metamorphosis of the O ne into the Otherâ\;&euro\;&Yuml\;\, a process that describes the  \;gradual reduction of distance between the work and the self of the artist .

\n

ANJU DODIYA
Anju Dodiya's work \;are \;a selection of pages from a 'diary' wher e she offers a concentrated act of mourning death. \;In many of her wor ks Anju Dodiya narrates the tragic/heroic aspirations of death by displayin g rigour and tension. \; The suite of \;watercolours \;with the ir fine delineation of charcoal are exuberant in their rendition of what ha unts the artist&rsquo\;s imagination.

\n

ATUL DODIYA
Atul Dodiya addresses the complexity of various simultaneous happenings in history - of politics\, art and culture \, through playful interventions in his series of watercolours. They \; humorously address ideas of local cultural representation through a constru ction of mock museums. In the forefront stand figures drawn from Company Sc hool paintings\, images drawn from Miniature paintings\, to 'dodiyaesque' f igures that stand frontally\, almost proud to pose before the "monuments" t hey stand before.

\n

BHUVANESH G OWDA
New works included here are a process oriented engageme nt rather than the preconceived idea of results. This series is an extensio n of his earlier use of wood as his primary material. Here the idea of carp entry is palpable\; their \;precise and mathematical base concurs with the artistic liberty to propose fictional forms. \;

\n

DESMOND LAZARO
Desmond Lazaro cha rts twelve miniature houses\, centred and floating like clouds\, each inscr ibed with a fragment of a legend about the 'blue house'. Here is an intimat e\, barely decodable metaphor of what a blue house might be\, what it wants and does to survive and give shelter. \;

\n

"For a long time I have wanted to make a shed - a small scale sculpture - a generic garden shed &ndash\; a shape that would satisfy my fa scination with &lsquo\;house and home&rsquo\; a theme\, which over the last few years I have considered in paintings - each time trying to unravel a m eaning for \;both - a s a symbol and a personal reference."

\n

DHRUVI ACHARYA
Dhruvi Acharya&rsquo\;s paintin gs are layered with graphic style deploying a narrative imagery in which sh e explores the complexities of motherhood\, citizenship and artistry. She p aints\, through allegory\, on the poetic as well as desperate moments in on e&rsquo\;s emotional and intellectual quarrel. Solitary female figures act in a chaotic universe composed of varied objects\, animals and empty speech bubbles that ironically point to the futility and fatality of human experi ence. Dhruvi Acharya&rsquo\;s paintings refer to drawings in her sketchbook s\, which she treats as a daily journal. &ldquo\;Chronicling the changi ng landscapes of my emotions\, and the various portraits of my experiences\ , these drawings are part of my stream of consciousness&rdquo\;.

\n

GIGI SCARIA
During a fellowship in Melbourne\, Gigi Scaria got acquainted with the landscape a nd geography of Victoria. He studied the way people moved from other parts of the world\, digging and cultivating the land in the course of history. T he gold rush and the import of trees and plants by the settlers lead to sig nificant changes in the natural formations of the land. The alterations of the landscape\, pleasing the vision of those who settled there\, prove of a cultural logic that not always corresponds to the logic of nature. Gigi Sc aria&rsquo\;s \;watercolour \;points to the &lsquo\;politics of the landscape&rsquo\; that is intricately related to the culture\, habits\, an d civic ideas of \;the people living there.

\n

JITISH KALLAT
Jitish Kallat&rsquo\;s phot ographic installation &lsquo\;The Cry of the Gland&rsquo\; continues his ex amination of the urban detail and repetition that began with the large room -scaled photo-piece of dented automobiles &lsquo\;365 Lives&rsquo\; (2007). Approaching commuters randomly in the street\, Kallat photographed the poc kets of their shirts\, often bulging or sagging under the weight of daily n ecessities - pens\, cigarettes\, keys\, wallets\, cellphones - resembling a tumour-like growth on the body. Kallat has described this act of stepping close and registering a picture of bodily protrusions laden with personal p ossessions as akin to capturing a short story.

\n

LAVANYA MANI
Lavanya Mani draws upon the n atural use of colour the way makers of  \;traditional Kalamkari textiles. \;Mani peeks into the past and reminds viewers of the hidde n stories behind the cloth they wear and the power dynamics that cloth carr ies in it's threads. Historically\, Kalamkari was traditionally a male art form\, as was its trade with the West\, however Mani has used the medium to explore the experience of womanhood through the renderings in the work.

\n

MEERA DEVIDAYAL
Meera Devidayal in her works\, "Crossing" 2012\, \;ad dresses the idea of urban migration - where the city of her dwelling become s the point of arrival and departure to thousands who throng and make their 'dreams'. These 'dreams' are a subject that preoccupy Meera's process and oeuvre. \;

\n

MITHU SEN
Mithu Sen's \;practice stems from a strong background in dra wing. In addition to popular images that she turns into puns\, many of the recurring motifs in these drawings (2013-2014) in her dreamlike works\, suc h as teeth\, birds\, and spinal columns\, have deeper psychoanalytic readin gs that tie into our subconscious thoughts about sexuality. \;

\n

N S HARSHA
From lofty cities and suspended homes to sleepers on the ground\, here is an itinerary for a monk who chooses to lay himself down &ndash\; a bodily need bound by a modest gesture. Harsha is no monk\, and his figures are not necessarily humble. They are common people who take their rest  \;in these set of d rawings titled\, "wahan se idhar\, idhar se udhar". They are not s ocially marked as homeless &ndash\; just sleeping gently and in gratitude f or a space in the world. \;

\n

REENA SAINI KALLAT
Reena Saini Kallat&rsquo\;s Ruled Pape r\, (red\, blue\, white) is from her recent body of works\, Porous Passages that advance poetic and provocative inquiries into ideas of unison and est rangement\, on confluence and conflict. A recurring motif\, as well as prim ary medium in the making of these works is the electrical cable.

\n

In this suite of drawings titled Ruled Paper\, (red\, blue\, white)\, wires appear as empty sheets of paper awaiting inscr iption\, but as if they were placed under a magnifying glass they begin to reveal or unravel a rather unsettling form of the barbed wire.

\n

RITESH MESHRAM
Ritiesh Mes hram's \;focus (with these works done in 2012 at The Gasworks Studio in London)\, has been the production of a series of concrete studies of items from his own studio\, illustrating his fascination with the shape and desi gn of objects used within our daily routines. Believing these objects to ho ld a kind of spectre of human lives\, he uses their forms to trace human id entity whilst exploring the ambiguous line of distinction between the natur al and the artificial.The process of making itself is central to Meshram's practice\, spontaneity\, improvisation and accident all being an integral p art of his working process\; the act of play as the only means to by which to create.

\n

SHAKUNTALA KULKARN I
Shakuntala Kulkarni\, in a series of small-format photogra phs (2015)\, continues to explore her ongoing series of work: of bodies \, armour and cages (2011-12). \;The body in need of protection re sorts to armour: an outer skin that cannot easily be dented or pierced\, or the skill to form an invisible shield around its exposed limbs. \;Kulk arni addresses herself to this paradox in her project\, which unfolds acros s a number of practices including the interdisciplinary laboratory\, drawin g\, photography\, the research archive\, sculpture\, and performance.
