Talwar Gallery is delighted to be part of FOG Design + Art 2023. Bringing together the works of Nasreen Mohamedi, Sheila Makhijani, Alwar Balasubramaniam, Ranjani Shettar and Bay Area artist Al-An deSouza, Talwar will present some of the most celebrated contemporary artists from India and its diaspora, working across media in painting, sculpture, drawing and photography.
Established in 2001, Talwar Gallery, New York and New Delhi, occupies a unique position at the intersection of India and the global art world.
“Shettar forges a relationship with her materials through sustained contact and proximity. Wood is carved entirely by hand, aided by the simplest tools, allowing for the slow revelation of its hidden possibilities.”
“Bala’s work explore his ever-deepening and a sustained relationship with the natural world—not only its landscapes or physical elements, but the forces that surround us.”
“Little known in her lifetime, Mohamedi has become an emblem of Modernism’s global reach and of the currents flowing outside western capitals. In her monochrome, quietly utopian world, diagonals slice across white paper like the contrails of jets flying in formation. Lines intersect, form nodes, and make waves. They cast shadows and coalesce into hovering forms. In her photographs of pavement stripes, coastlines and walls, she is always alert to the world’s mysterious rhythms.”
"Sheila Makhijani stands distinctly apart in the art landscape in India to her commitment to an oeuvre in its singular pursuit of abstraction."
"Frequently hovering between figuration and abstraction, subjectivity and neutrality, the real and the fictional, deSouza's works excavate historical, cultural and ideological constructs, examining the relationship between narratives of collective identity, individual experience and art history."
