Richi Bhatia

Richi's work pacifies the equilibrium of self and the shared morality it encounters. A parlance between the intimate and the imagined, the works explore materials and mediums intricately rendered as evasive portraits that sit atop an oasis of time.1. The works exude an effeminate quality fraught with prudent composure. There is a sense of labour that is captured within the works, woven with an effervescence that emerges from the sporadic composition-making. There is a sense of vulnerability that lends itself into the works; her work unfolds more like a conversation rather than a distilled artwork.
