The Lokayata Art Gallery in New Delhi is currently hosting Northeast artist Babli Das’ solo art exhibition, titled “I LIVE IN MY OWN SPACE”. The exhibit kicked off on November 18th, 2017 at Lokayata Art Gallery, Hauz Khas in New Delhi.
Babli Das first times organized her own Solo Art Exhibition in Delhi.
Babli Das is primarily an abstractionist. The artworks on display at the ongoing exhibition include a host of freely-flowing abstract forms of two or more colours which resemble various objects or animals. The technique used for these artworks were unconventional.
To create the artworks, artist Babli Das, splattered enamel colours on canvas, allowing the paints a free rein for a short while, ‘without any intent or image in mind’. Then, as the paint spread and produced various shapes, she would stop its flow at a particular instance. “Bali Das captures the flow at a particular moment like a photographer captures a particular shot,”
Babli Das said that she would repeat the process with different colours and would overlap the paints as needed. Then, she would burn the paint in order to dry it. “The extent of the burns also reflects in the artwork,” also said Das, “I also picked up the appropriate colours to celebrate particular themes.”
The exhibition, currently on at the Gallery from 11 am to 7 pm every day, will be run through November 23rd, 2107.
