Sunday Evening Art Gallery — Hari & Deepti

Hari & Deepti construct elegant cut paper dioramas inside backlit light boxes.The medium is perfect for depicting the depth of thick forests, pools of water, or subterranean caves inhabited by spirits and fantastic creatures.Hari & Deepti are a husband-wife artist duo based in Mumbai whose collaboration with paper and light started as an experiment in 2010 .They are story tellers who bring their stories to life through their intricate paper cut scenes lit by a gentle backlight.The two have always been drawn towards the imaginative aspect of story telling.Hari & Deepti believe that “Paper is brutal in its simplicity as a medium.“It demands the attention of the artist while it provides the softness they need to mold it in to something beautiful.“It is playful, light, colorless and colorful. It is minimal and intricate. It reflects light, creates depth and illusions in a way that it takes the artist through a journey with limitless possibilities.”
