The process of art making in the contemporary era is continually evolving in leaps and bounds. History has shown that there have been unprecedented outbursts of creativity and innovation in the arts during adverse political climates. Artists have experimented with mediums for many centuries now, especially during periods of great turmoil. However, the current contemporary art world boasts of a different kind of evolution – one in which simply using non-conventional mediums doesn’t fit the bill. Artists are increasingly experimenting with form, subject matter, composition, color palettes and stylistic approaches. The days of mimesis are long gone, and bringing conceptually superior standpoints in artworks is of primary importance to most practicing artists today. The purpose is not just to experiment and create works on a hit-and-trial basis; artists are making an attempt to go deep into the nature of their mediums and find ways to re-invent traditions, so to speak.

In this exhibition, we have brought together a group of ten South Asian artists, each of whom is bringing their own distinctive approach towards the art-making process. From hyperrealism, surrealism, mysticism, feminism and a plethora of subjects that address various socio-political concerns – these artists have found subtle, highly conceptualized ways to express the apparent glitches and glaring holes in our immediate microcosm. What binds them together as a group is a veil of subtlety that hovers tantalizingly over the actual issue, sometimes shielding us from the harsh truth until the narrative unfolds to reveal the true motive of a work. There is no direct depiction of the violence and disarray that we encounter via media on a daily basis; instead these artists offer the viewer a mindful recognition of ideologies or concerns that are lying dormant in our collective consciousness.
