In times where love intertwines with fear and longing, art becomes a vessel for the unspoken, the unarticulated, and the healing. “Triple Solos” brings forth the works of Tejswini Sonawane, Rohan Pawar, and Vivek Das, each exploring the complexities of human existence through their unique artistic lenses.

Tejswini Sonawane, a master of woodcut prints, delves into the emotional intricacies of human-animal relationships. Through her meticulous craft, she uncovers layers of emotions, portraying subjects that transcend the boundaries of mere representation. Her works, such as “Bird, Cat and I,” delve into the primal essence of affection and connection, inviting viewers to contemplate the raw authenticity of love.

Rohan Pawar, influenced by the philosophical depth of Ambedkar’s teachings, channels his creativity into sculptures that reflect the plight of migrants during the pandemic. His ornate pieces, rich in symbolism, depict the struggles and sacrifices of marginalized communities, urging viewers to confront the harsh realities of social inequality and displacement.

Vivek Das, drawing inspiration from nature’s miracles, constructs sculptures that celebrate the intricate beauty of the natural world. From ant hills to earthen lamps, his works serve as reminders of the interconnectedness of all living beings, inviting viewers to cultivate a deeper sense of sensitivity and appreciation for the environment.

In the midst of uncertainty and upheaval, these artists offer glimpses of hope and resilience through their art. Their creations serve as testaments to the enduring power of love, transcending barriers of time, space, and circumstance. As Elif Shafak eloquently reminds us, love is not merely a fleeting emotion but the very essence and purpose of life itself.

“This is why we cannot title an exhibition after Love?” invites viewers to embark on a journey of introspection and contemplation, exploring the myriad expressions of love amidst the backdrop of a world in turmoil. Through their artistic endeavours, Sonawane, Pawar, and Das invite us to embrace love in all its forms, offering solace and healing in times of darkness and despair.
