Vadehra Art Gallery, presents a solo exhibition by celebrated post-modernist Arpita Singh titled Meeting, featuring a curated body of canvases, watercolours and drawings. This is the artist’s first solo exhibition in London.
Arpita Singh’s works assume new dimension as cartographical autobiographies, accenting imagined characters and landscapes with the flourish of expressionist emotion. With compositions foregrounded in movement, Singh tends to emphasize the potential of individual agency operating within collective constraints, though her mapping doesn’t seem to prioritize any one aspect – whether the fictional, mythical, personal, public fact or dream. These almost think-scapes capture constructs of space in abstraction, whose protagonists occupy their frames implicitly and navigate time, cultures and history through an assemblage of connection.
