Silent celebration

Dilip Chobisa



Anant Art Gallery, 2010 (March)

Catalogue Essay: Deeksha Nath


Dilip creates depth and exposes avenues for the imagination by opening a door here and a window there, by playing with perspective- how endless seems the room with the receding black and white floor pattern. He completely disregards the laws of architecture and thus a window opens as a trapdoor in what we assume to be the floor of the room and so perhaps these aren’t doors and windows as much as portals, with all the accompanying associations of parallel dimensions and secret openings to hidden places.
