Deborah Colton Gallery will present the dynamic multi-media exhibition, “Heroism is the Possibility of Believing in the Impossible,” a series of work by international artist, Amita Bhatt.
In this solo exhibition, Bhatt digs deep into world philosophies and mythologies to answer questions pertaining to our political as well as personal belief systems. Unafraid to explore uncomfortable territories, the artist mines from a range of sources to create hybrid creatures that are often symbolic of man’s psychological condition in an angst-ridden zeitgeist.
In exploring issues of identity and violence, Bhatt’s research led her to the beginnings of mankind. Most ancient creation myths claim chaos to be the central truth marking the beginnings of the world. Should turbulence then be viewed as essential to new beginnings? Bhatt’s characters are packed with irony, humor and indifference, and navigate intense color fields, all in search of wisdom and truth. They mirror the tumultuous times we live in, yet they know that there are deep Karmic mysteries that need to be understood and that HOPE in the end is what will sustain them.
The exhibition will remain on display through October 17. The installation and works can be seen through the gallery’s Viewing Room and their Virtual Slide Show Video on our website. They are also open during normal gallery hours of Tuesday to Saturday, 10:30 am to 5:30 pm, and can arrange private appointments when requested.
