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!

Another Circle near the Pavilion

c
November 24th, 2010

This painting is a little different. It’s mainly in white and is of a ceramic sculpture near the sports pavilion and a well known garden in the city. Thus I circled this sculpture with football like forms which have designs like flowers. As a lot of my friends in Baroda play football regularly in the pavilion I instantly associate this fountain-like form to it…
Bway, these photographs are taken with an ordinary camera, once they all are finished, I will get proffesional photographs taken

  • hey nirali, is this painting finished? i fell that it is lacking some ‘punch’.
    monochromatic paintings, white on white can really be superb, and it takes something special to pull it off.
    I feel that because you have given so much emphasis and colour on the footballs, the rest of the piece needs more attention. i would love to see you do more with the actual sculpture to see it pop a little more. also, how about adding some more texture to the back ground? really building it up?

  • You know Poojie, the sculpture is actually done in silver. But the image has not done justice. Shall think about it …

  • totally agree with poojs’ assessment. Feels un-done or incomplete in a way that is not intentional.

    Even creating works that have that unfinished look takes some doing I think.

    The football circle as a motif is interesting, but at the same time too heavy for the rest of the canvas…

    Been a big dream of mine to pull off a white on white work – it is a toughie and that coming from someone that hasn’t even tried it in reality.

  • I am doing more work on it… actually the photograph as i said is not doing justice to the work… I shall get professional photos taken and then upload it
