Gallery Ragini presents a Solo show of recent works by Gond artist, Dhavat Singh.┬áThe words of folklore are rarely written down, and only now, when the fear of oblivion looms. The paintings Dhavat creates are a reflection of the village he hails from and talk of these stories – of birds ready to hold up the sky, peacocks losing their crowns to vanity, and even the conception of the Earth. His attention to detail and ability to craft narratives through his work has allowed him to retain some of the waning folklore that dotted his childhood.
