Title:        Melting Pot, Group show of 5 Women Artists

Dates:      12 Jan - 3 Feb2017

The exhibition at Gallery Beyond is the sixth edition of "Melting Pot "; an India to Europe exhibition tour of paintings by four women artists of different nationalities all working in India. The project is initiated by two artists working in Mumbai and Bangalore; a Serbian artist Katarina Rasic, and Barbara Ash from the U.K. In 2015 they had the idea to form a working artist collective, and use their "international links", by connecting artists and shows in India, where they currently work, with their home countries.

Gayatri Gamuz; a Spanish artist who is based in Thiruvannamalai, Tamil Nadu, and who has been living in India for 20+ years, and Pritam Bhatty; an artist from Mukteshwar, Uttarakhand, were invited to participate owing to the perceived links and commonalities in their work. In this edition they decided to include one more artist and expand the show, Priti Vadakath; a Kochi based artist. The body of work explores a range of issues, including female identity, national identity, cultural dynamics, ideas of "belonging", and the concept of "home".

“The ‘Melting pot’ conjures up an image of diverse elements poetically mingling and merging together, with bits and pieces of resistance preventing complete homogenisation of the mixture. The compilation of work symbolically carries forward the theme; individually, and jointly, the four artists’ paintings represent notions of absorbing, adopting and alternately rejecting cultural influences that have framed their respective life experiences. The exhibition marks similarities and differences in their perspectives, while highlighting the hybrid nature of their practices. The imagery is visibly transnational, tracing lineages, exploring roots, and morphing disparate histories through visual narrative.

Barbara Ash, Pritam Bhatty, Katarina Rasic and Gayatri Gamuz navigate physical and conceptual boundaries, attempting to embrace the past while building bridges into the contemporary.
