About

Neha Vedpathak Charlevoix 2, 2019 Plucked Japanese handmade paper, acrylic paint, thread 21 x 18 inches 53.3 x 45.7 cm Neha Vedpathak’s early career as an abstract-minimalist painter took a formative turn in 2009 when she was exploring ways to take her two-dimensional practice in a new direction. Her experiments with different media (and her desire to avoid toxic materials) led her to Japanese paper, already in her repertoire as a painter. She transformed this familiar material into swaths of textured sheets that became the components for large wall pieces that are both paintings and collages. Vedpathak’s process appears simple: using a pushpin, she plucks artisanal Japanese paper, separating its fibers to create a randomly open flexible ground. It is a lengthy and rigorously repetitive process that makes time itself an integral force in each work. Days, even months, might be spent plucking. But time plucking is also time ruminating. For Vedpathak, plucking paper has become a ritual of transformation, a slowing-down, a meditation. In addition to materials and process being her inspiration, the artist’s investigations of her physical environment are key to her creativity. Since coming to the United States in the early 2000s, she has lived in urban centers: Chicago, Tucson and Detroit. Rain could have been inspired by any of them, but it has the feel of a desert downpour where the arrival of rain is a celestial delight. This almost pure white construction appears to be tinged with sand in places. It conjures that moment in a downpour when color disappears and water is all that is visible. Yet Rain retains the serendipity of Vedpathak’s plucking, creating evocative shadows as light penetrates its lace-like holes. Vedpathak currently lives in Detroit. Those Places reflects her familiarity with its particular cityscape, harmoniously incorporating architectural forms, the shapes of broken masonry, and the bright, saturated color of a regenerating city. Her response is personal. The work is sensuous and lively. Neha Vedpathak’s works have been shown at Arizona State University Art Museum, Tempe; Weatherspoon Museum, Greensboro North Carolina; Detroit Institute of Arts, Michigan; and Centre d’Art Marnay Art Centre, France.
