(Shridharani Gallery)

Shridharani Gallery, New Delhi presents a solo show by senior artist Gopi Gajwani titled "A symphony of abstracts" from January 14 through February 1, 2017.

This solo by veteran artist comes after more than a decade. Gajwani’s abstractionism is instantly identifiable as square and rectangular grids form a dominant part of his paintings. These are usually divided or united by a line or lines that reach a junction or form a holding pattern. But he is far from repetitive. His work from a certain time is distinguished by the colour grids and placement of lines in a particular order.

Gajwani’s paintings are all about emotion and moments of fleeting tenderness. There is a glimpse of affection in his work that peeks into the world of love as well as the abyss of despair across which hope emerges like a beacon. They are replete with sentiments sans any tinge of melodrama. The audience is only allowed a glimpse of the artist’s thoughts, an evanescent epiphany. The colours in Gajwani’s paintings appear winking and blinking, directing the audience to their collection of memories.

The exhibition will be on view at Shridharani Gallery, Triveni Kala Sangam, Tansen Marg, New Delhi.
