Excited to present the India Debut exhibition of SEEMA PANDYA : Spanda :Reverberations of Nature Curated by Dr Arshiya Lokhandwala and Presented by Sunaina Kejriwal
for Mumbai Gallery Weekend 2024. Opens 11 January 5 pm. The artist will be present at the opening.

Spanda: Reverberation of Nature is a solo exhibition of Seema Pandya and drawing on the term Spanda, etymologically derived from the root, spadi, which means movement, motion, or vibration. According to Kashmir Shaivism, Spanda, manifests itself in everything one does as an impulse in which the consciousness, at the subtlest level, moves in waves of contraction and expansion resounding the “pulsation of the ecstasy of the divine consciousness” (Brahman).

Seema Lisa Pandya, a Brooklyn, NY based South Asian American artist presents an expansion of her Tabla sculpture series through several works drawing parallels between sound, geometry, cellular biology, and patterns found in all aspects of nature. Pandya takes her Tabla sculpture series a step further in this show drawing inspiration directly through an investigation of Cymatics. Cymatics is the study of sound and vibration made visible by applying a vibration to a plate typically holding sand or water to reveal natural patterns and geometries. The exhibition is the artist’s first solo exhibition in India. 1. Tabla Geodesic Dome

Chanira Bajracharya was once a kumari — a young girl worshiped in Nepal as the embodiment of a Hindu goddess. But she still made time to study. Now, she's encouraging the girl goddesses who have followed her to do the same. https://nyti.ms/3o8dQBZ

Still reeling from seeing the incredible body of work by ‘Atul Dodiya: Walking with the Waves’ @ KNMA Saket curated by Roobina Karode. This large body of 350 works made in isolation during the pandemic, of which 130 are on display are dedicated to St Francis of Assisi a patron saint of ecology and sentient life on earth. Not of be missed

Al-Qawi Nanavati
In I WANT TOMORROW

The artworks in I Want Tomorrow are made using my mom's clothes, weaving memories together with her threads, letters I have written to her in the secret script and many more emotions one cannot pen down.

So, until I meet my mother again, I hold onto everything she touched and think of her every day. I want to, through my practice, be able to form a coherence of loss, acceptance of self and corroboration of data within me which can make me accept that loss is part and parcel of life.

The outlook we have towards certain concepts of mortality and "death", needs to be challenged, reviewed as an infinite circle of growth, decay and regrowth. The piece encapsulates fragments of immortality, giving new life as objects of art, forms making these concepts tangible and more so achievable. There is an interaction of bone, drawing and sculpture all facilitating conversations of personal interpretation.

I have always dealt with the opposite forces of life when it comes to the nature of my work. Highlighting the temperamental values within human behavior through the extent of ignorance we dilute the ideas of negativity. With this piece I want to bring in my aesthetic and thought process to highlight ideas forming the basis of acknowledging mental health as an impactful element of our life.

I want to highlight the parts that we don’t acknowledge. The negation in the sense of intrusive thoughts that start out anxiety or the feelings of aloneness that start out a depressive episode. Elements that should be highlighted but are unfortunately, never even acknowledged. My idea is to represent this through the form of a Rorschach Ink blot. I work with ink spills, driving the viewer to find meaning within the form. Creating organic forms to represent how our own mind works in terms of creating tangents within our thoughts.

I attempt to create something sculptural and dimensional, for the viewer to interact with, think about the forms through their lenses and interpret it as their ideals in terms of mental health. My intention is to warp the "negative" into conversations that initiate through experiences, giving my work purpose as an enabler for varied views on a similar subject line.

If the Covid 19 pandemic had any upside, mental health issues that normally had a stigma attached to them have become common parlance. Issues such as depression, anxiety, paranoia, abnormal thoughts, bipolar disorder, autism, amongst the other more serious illnesses have gained gravitas, allowing those who struggled with them to speak out finally and seek help.

Lost in Colour

True resistance is never an intellectual move, it is a physical, spatial response to the intersection of authority & immanence. This is to say that minor architectures open within a seemingly opaque object system an entirely different order of experience, an entirely new nomos as a spatial text. Hence a space of exception arises at the threshold of bare life, from within the very state that prohibits its existence. The authority of the state of exception to exclude such space is overturned.”

The Artist is Present !Thank you Ankush Safaya for visiting with Rekha Rodwittiya.
Ankush Safaya in his tribute for Zarina Hashmi in Ufuq considers " The idea of a horizon fascinates me.
A probable destination or perhaps a limitless unending beckoning of one, suggestive of desire. In the strain of a musical note stretched, the reverberation of that single note blurs all else into oblivion to become an all-encompassing universe of the infinite."

I listen to contemporary western classical composers, and view world cinema. This led me to explore the structural relationship between music, digital communication and weaving. I make these connections because I believe it is not merely about the visual or the sensory but equally the structural arrangement involved, that creates the deliverance.
