Gargi Raina

Artist
Vadodara, Gujarath, India
1961

Gargi’s family is originally from Kashmir and later settled in Lahore and then during Partition of India, they moved to Delhi.  She was born in New Delhi  .  Raina strives to go back from the starting point of a form – a circle, cube or triangle, and then juxtaposes these forms within a space which culminates into a meaningful work. Her applied art background lends itself to her non-representational work. Her works are done using a variety of materials – acrylic, pastel on paper, clay and wood; and she not only paints, but she carves and etches the materials. Raina works in sequences which follow a narrative, linear in the way it reads but elastic in the way that it enables us to comprehend and examine.
