Shanthi’s second solo, is a culmination of work made during the pandemic.The events in her life and that of others during the pandemic, led her to examine her own life in relation to the larger canvas of life. She realised that her experiences in life resonated with others as well. Whilst personal, her experiences are also universal.

Jehangir Art Gallery

The last two years brought about a significant shift in her work. Being homebound for the most part, her medium of expression shifted from photography to drawing and painting.

This exhibition puts forward four distinct series, each reflecting different aspects of her recent development: a narrative on her parents in her drawings, nature’s revival in her sky paintings, power and control in the collaborative sculptural pieces and her thoughts and emotions through the wall series interventions.Before the pandemic, she was photographing the overlooked beauty of deteriorating walls of different cities which resulted in her first solo Enduring I Ephemeral at Artisan’s Gallery Mumbai.

About the artist:

Shanthi Kasiviswanathan is a visual artist and photographer based in Mumbai, India. She switched from a corporate career to pursue her passion in visual arts at 40 and has been practicing since graduating from the Sir J.J. School of Fine Arts in 2015. Her work, a compelling invitation to see things differently is influenced by her own innate nature to question the status quo. Observation is key to her work and it can be seen in her photographic works, her drawings, her paintings and more recently her maiden foray into sculpture, in collaboration with fellow artists.
