New Works

In her first solo show, Aaditi Joshi dissolves the distinction between form and content.  Plastic is both the subject and the material of the sculptural installations. Influenced by the debris she sees around her in the city, she resurrects the perception of trash, more specifically plastic, from its home in the rubbish heap. Through a blend of total control and total spontaneity, she interacts and experiments with her medium, and elevates plastic to explosions of colour and visual poetry. Highlighting that which is sublime and expressive, she invites us to look at objects bypassed and overlooked, with fresh eyes.

Keen to keep a certain energy flowing through her works, Aaditi lets the medium speak, through its layered and varied textural quality. In many ways she shares the concerns of a poet, only in this case - it is the language of art. The clouds of colour, all products of the imagination, open up an infinite future for both creator and viewer, and seem to say - respond to me as if you’re seeing me for the first time.
