The Triptych, 'Emergence of Spirits' represents the annual reawakening of life on the land.
This begins with 'Raab', invoking the spirits of the ancestors as farmers prepare the land for the seed, including the ritual burning of the soil. This is followed by 'Paush', the first rain, which awakens life in the seed, and transforms dry land into lush green every year. The last is 'Khala', a thanksgiving for the harvest seed, where a gathering of ancestral spirits leave their blessings for another year.
ARTISANS’ presents the first ever exhibition in Mumbai of the brothers Mayur (29) and Tushar (38) Vayeda, internationally celebrated artists from the indigenous Warli community in western India.
In Regeneration the Vayedas seek to reconnect with their ancestors; to reclaim and reconstruct their ancient legacy for a new generation; and to transform their collective lives. This call for regeneration is inspitred by natural and indigenous systems that heal and restore damaged ecosystems.
In this series, the Vayeda brothers adapt their inherited style of painting to communicate. While they strive to preserve the basic grammar of its style and remain deeply connected to its origins, their concepts go far beyond, to address universal concerns. In the process they move their tradition forward, towards the vanguard of contemporary Warli art.
