Of colours and abstractions
Artist Ravi Kumar Kashi's photo exhibition titled Remembered Abstractions throws new light on mundane things in life through abstract art
Ever found yourself in front of a door that intrigues you to open it and explore what lies beyond? Or mesmerized by the texture and form of a simple everyday and often ignored object, be it a lock, a window or even a fence?
Bangalore-based artist Ravi Kumar Kashi’s latest photography exhibition in the city, titled ‘Remembered Abstractions’ is a 20-print exhibit curated from 600 abstract photographs that bring to light those things we are used to pass by without so much of glance. With an eye for art, especially in apparently mundane, everyday things, Kashi’s work promises to enthrall the viewer, capturing their attention and compelling them to seek the story behind the photograph.
"Remembered Abstractions are about real walls that I've come across when traveling. However, I've related them to the paintings of the 50s and 60s and those I made during 98-99," says Kashi. “I've been working on this project since 2006,” he adds.
Kashi is known for his strong sense of colour and composition. The exhibits on display are limited edition prints, printed on 100 per cent cotton, acid-free 26”x36” archival paper that guarantees that the artwork is an investment worth a century.
