Chemould Prescott Road presents a solo show by Mumbai-based abstractionist Sheetal Gattani, New Canvasses. The artist showcases 17 new large canvasses in this show about which she says, “to me, canvases are what really excite me. I am a labourer at heart and the rigor of making the work is what excites me…. For me, making art is about small steps, not big leaps.” Gattani’s earthy, minimalist paintings—devoid of discernible motifs—absorb viewers with their incredible depth, provoking an introspective experience. Her palette is inspired by spaces, materials, and the environment she occupies, and she applies numerous layers of paint to her surfaces, privileging textural and material explorations over specific forms or familiar structures.
