Colourful walls and their stories

PHOTOGRAPHY

As the name of the exhibition suggests ‘Nobody’s Art’ so are the paintings put on display. There is no muse, portraiture or any landscape images inside the frame. Only images of colourful walls.

When given a close look, the walls present a silhouette of a face and objects. It depends upon the viewer as to how they want these photographs to emerge
infront of them.

After travelling around India, Ragah Fallah, a Swedish national, has photographed in detail the walls of the cities and villages. He has put his work on display at the Wonderwall Gallery, Lado Sarai.

Fallah describes his work as a ‘viable composition’, which means a composition that appears ‘complete’ – the viewer is satisfied that everything of interest is already present within the borders of the picture.

Fallah is a self taught artist and teacher working with a wide variety of mediums – often in dialogue with modern art. His present work includes collation of photographs and designs from traditional and modern cultures around the world and then reconstructing them in mixed media.

For the last 25 years, he has been working on exhibitions, publications and book projects dealing with protection of cultural heritage. Therefore in his exhibition he has presented works from Sandhupare, Gujarat, Mumbai, Kolkata and other cities.

There are ofcourse many references to past precedents in the history of art. It includes expressionism, surrealism etc. Some of the images even make references to the classical periods. The artist says, “Abstraction opens new doors into visual expression but above all, these images are about how our eyes look for a compositional logic”.
The exhibition is on view at Wonderwall Gallery, Lado Sarai, till January 15, 11
am to 7 pm.
