Amidst all the festive colour, discover the beauty of black and white at Sakshi Gallery’s latest group show

‘To see in colour is a delight for the eye but to see in black and white is a delight for the soul,’ says American photographer Andri Cauldwell. With its latest exhibition, Shades of Gray, Sakshi Gallery attempts to treat viewers souls to monochrome artworks.

The group show features drawings, photographs and works in mixed media mostly in black, white and, like the title of the show suggests, various shades of gray. One will be enthralled by the digital photographs by Waswo X Waswo, the archival prints of Karachi by Riyas Komu and the wonderful captures of celebrated photographer Pablo Bartholomew. Artworks by Rekha Rodwittiya, Shilpa Gupta, Sunil Gawde, Vasudha Thozhur, Kim Seola, and visual artist Julian Opie among others, are also featured in the display.

As the press note of the exhibition says, ‘The show gives expression to diverse artistic engagements spanning the personal and political, immediate and universal, social and timeless, all realised in a colour palette that is black and white…’

Shades of Gray is on display at Sakshi Gallery, Mumbai (6/19, Grants Building, 2nd Floor, Arthur Bunder Road, Colaba) until January 10, 2015.
