The Kravets/Wehby Gallery is pleased to announce GASP! a solo exhibition of new paintings by Dhruvi Acharya opening on Thursday, February 25th and running through April 2nd, 2010.
Dhruvi Acharya divulges the secrets of an inner psyche brimming with the deep affection and concern for modern city life. GASP indicates her response to the complex navigation of matters pertaining to humanity, technology and the environment. Her female protagonists simultaneously navigate artifacts of Indian miniatures and modern Mumbai living. Each woman grapples with the physical aspects of her body and/or image. Some women are large carrying child, others fat from consumption. Other women are starved of oxygen in a polluted environment or deflated in appearance for emotional complexities. Dhruvi has a unique working process that incorporates collage and multiple layers of synthetic polymer paint to create a resin like surface with opulent depth.
Dhruvi Acharya lives and works in Mumbai. This will be her first solo exhibition in New York. She recently had solo shows at Nature Morte in New Delhi and Chemould Prescott Road in Mumbai.
