Why I do what I do

This website will give you a glimpse into my work as an artist,  community builder and activist. I have been negotiating the world through the lens of a creative entrepreneur for the last two decades. It's been a wonderful journey with a lot of learning and collaborating with people I deeply respect.
In the coming years, I believe that creative thinkers will be crucial to document, stitch, hold and present the world. We are at the very edge of collapse on one side, and of a future that can spin out into unimaginable wonders on the other. I believe we can get to the happier side by working together!

Bangalore, Baroda, Extreme Heat and House Shifting….

c
May 24th, 2009

Since the past month, there has been very little art activity for me. I returned from a super hectic trip in Bangalore to an even more chaotic Baroda. I have to shift my house within this week and its really hot.
But other than the heat, its not too difficult as there is a lot of help around, but as its my house, I have to do the monitoring. I am really looking forward to settle and start some new work. For some time, I shall do big sizes. I am planning to have a solo in Baroda in March. Also I am looking forward to the 3For show… when should we do it?
I was also thinking the Fine Arts exhibition hall in Baroda is good place to have shows. You can get real constructive criticism here, from renowned artists. So maybe a travelling 3For show, Faculty of Fine arts, Baroda & Samuha, Bangalore…

  • Hey sounds great! You guys need to let me know when you want to do the 3For show – so I can book a slot at Samuha. We will be launching (if all things go well) in the last week of june.

    Nirodh – March eh. Congrats da :) 3For before or after? Would you be showing some of the same work in both shows??

  • Launch is set for 22nd June and the first artist goes live on July 1st. Slots are disappearing as quickly as pie. Please let me know when is a good time…

    Pooj – when are you delivering? would you like the exhibition to be before or after that?

    Dec is booked out, jan is available as of today.

  • Girls FYI – I have booked a slot from the 19th of February to the 7th of March 2010. (http://samuha.wikidot.com/calendar)

    I plan to have 3 For (assuming you girls are in) for 8 days and then Blue = Design+Art – a designery-arty show that I curate with the basic idea that the exhibits display a blurring between the 2 disciplines.

    Let me know if you both are in for this show. The gallery is 1250 sq feet and can easily hold all our work in style. It is also ideally suited. We will have 125.5 Feet of white wall space + 1000 Sq ft of floor space.

    Nirodh please plan for a Baroda jaunt for 3For post March 7th. I also guess you will be showing in March sometime as well? Give us details on that na.

  • Hey,
    I guess that the time clashes… But maybe I can mangae to do both.
    Arcna, can you tell me… how many works each of us need to give. around 40 feet of wall space… right? thats I guess around 7 – 8 paintings for me (size approx 3 feet to 4 feet)
    I think i would show different works. Because my solo has one concept…
    Lets do it… its been quite some time. I hope Pooja is game. what say?
    Hey I am coming to Bangalore, next month for a couple of days. I can carry few works. if all is confirmed. lets decide.
    way to go Arc baby!

  • All is confirmed! Yep Pooj is on board. Yeah 7-8 works from each of us should be ideal. Lets make it happen.

    And yeah from here on make sure to docu the process online at the blog…esp the pics. This will be super useful for the catalog.

    Lets pull in Sandy.

  • ahhhhh i’m freaking out. what should i paint. i dont want my work to be too raunchy for the show. i’m thinking little works, but what???
    ok ok, i’m thinking…..
    nirali what do you mean different works? not in a series you mean?
