Rajvi Dedhia Unadkat
While travelling from her home country, India, to the West, Rajvi Dedhia Unadkat has been in the process of creating a personal abstract language. She communicates and re-contextualizes this change through the movement that can be seen in her paintings. Elements like colour, line and texture in her compositions create visual vibrations, which serve as metaphors for this abstract language.
Colour, being an essential part in her working process, not only goes beyond its actual visual existence, but also expresses Unadkat’s response to instrumental piano music, which stimulates her imagination. The application of multiple layers on the canvas in different mediums creates an interesting texture and division, giving more depth to the painting. The accidental or spontaneous as well as the intentional forms are applied alternatively which become an integral part of the composition and maintain the harmony of the painting. Unadkat’s works intuitively, exploring the vastness of her interior world. With her paintings, she hopes to convey to the viewer her personal motivation and creative process. The abstract language she uses is a way to leave the door open to interpretation, to initiate an exchange of minds, and to hopefully create a dialogue.
