Into the light: Prafull Davé
The collaboration between Prafull Davé and Chemould, that started in the 1960’s, finds its continuation coming full circle in an online virtual exhibition Into the light, at Chemould Prescott Road. Prafull Davé explores transpersonal realms: his compositions oscillate between dream states of knowing and not knowing, having no beginning or end. His painterly process is of meditative nature, surrendering for hours on end to the mixing of pigments that are saturated with sand and streams of colour. This exhibition features a series of paintings made over 15 years, and is curated by Jacqueline Burckhardt - art historian and cofounder of art magazine Parkett. It marks the friendship between Kekoo Gandhy and Dave that has spanned over 50 years and is somewhat of a homecoming of the artist who has been based in Switzerland since 1968.
