DAG Modern is pleased to present New York based artist Natvar Bhavsar’s first retrospective in India, aptly titled ‘Homecoming’ at its Mumbai Gallery. His art sails past all limitations and enclosures to evoke feelings – and a sense of being – on a cosmic scale’ – Carter Ratclife, American art critic, writer and poet. Curated by Kishore Singh, the exhibition opened on 20th November, and will remain on view till 25th January 2018.

Natvar Bhavsar’s paintings offer us peace in a troubled world, a world momentarily bend on chaos, confusion, and apparent destruction. The send of feeling at home with these paintings is, after all, a sense of being at peace in the world. Bhavsar’s indulgence of colour within the full range of the spectrum invigorates us and challenges us to look deeper, and to rediscover the satisfaction of a paradoxical and refreshing tranquillity’ – Richard Morgan, Art critic, historian poet and painter.

And, this is how Natvar Bhavsar has been feted in the US, a land that he now calls home. Bringing him and his art to India for the first time, DAG Modern is set to ignite a similar response in the land of Bhavsar’s birth.
