Who • The Artists
Alpesh Dave’s thread on canvas works are natural, simple and deep. He strives to make them seem completely without contrivance, mere figments of the mind, stripped to the essence and willed into visibility. His sense of economy of composition also conveys a remarkable orchestration of space, light and texture, which marries beauty with delicate lucidity.
He never imposes an image upon the surface, instead facilitating its evolution, tending it as one would a garden, embracing both the traditional and the contemporary and in doing so creates a space in which viewers can experience an authentic, elemental and meaningful simplicity that is often hard to find in contemporary art.
