Event Description : Rashmi Rai presents Breath and Boundaries, her first solo photography exhibition featuring a visual diary of mundane street doorways elevated to extraordinary.

The exhibit is an array of 21 photographs exploring the symbolic nature of doors as a protection, a passage or a transition. Seemingly commonplace to the layman’s eye, she depicts the unseen elements of everyday still life, Glimpses, for instance, of a crooked street, a decrepit corner, a chance glance into an alley, a shuttered door, etc, that form a good part of our subconscious reminisces.

Curated by Gargi Seth, Rashmi’s first solo show features a melange of cities from the lanes of Udaipur to unnoticed streets of Spain over a period of 5 years. A business management graduate, Rashmi pursued art since 2001 and has since made images with elements of abstraction and minimalism in landscapes, still life objects and expressive art portraits.

The concept of the show derives itself from the various emotions and the enigma that the doors invoke in every individual. Doors are at once forbidding and inviting. They may not always lead to places but take you to a place within yourself. A door is a key, a boundary and a transportation portal that connects you to yourself. Breath and boundaries is an attempt at exploring the in between connections and transitions in space and time. 

Rashmi’s style of work is about the interplay of light and her spontaneity with her camera. Her art explores the interplay of our jaded, bland, urban existence with vistas of rustic charm, or of faraway town allure. Her images ask us to pay attention to scenes and details habitually passed over, presenting beauty in unlikely places. 

“My motivation of turning to the camera comes from my love for paintings. I always wanted to be a painter. But after understanding light, form and colour with the camera, and the process of ‘making’ an instant picture in the camera, made it achievable to capture moments faster that a painted canvas. This exhibition brings forth the everyday beauty of doors and architecture laden with humdrum art”, says the artist, Rashmi Rai.

Mundane is the key to her art as it brings inner voice and unguessed thoughts to the front. Life resonates in every artwork elevating the objects from the ordinary to an intriguing story.

About the artist : Rashmi’s introduction to DSLR photography was in 2010. It was the macro lens that got her deeply interested in studying more about this art form. She completed her diploma in photography in 2013 from eminent photographer and professor, Dr.O.P.Sharma at Treveni Kala Sangam, New Delhi and also trained with Munish Khanna, an acclaimed fashion and advertising photographer in Delhi.

She had been dealing in customized and original art for homes and offices for many years and also dabbles in charcoals, watercolors and mixed media. She believes in complete freedom of expression.
