Akshita Gandhi’s experiments with light and shadow at NYFW

Akshita Gandhi showcased massive installations, lightboxes and artworks, paired with sonnets at NYFW. “Frank De Bourge’s collection resonated with my avant garde style,” says Gandhi, of the New York-based designer with who, she collaborated.

The journey of her artwork, titled ‘Let There Be Light’, took eight months to evolve from concept to completion. “My process began by playing muse and being photographed. These were then printed on canvas, worked over with different mediums like acrylic paints, oil and Chinese ink. The end result was converted into acrylic sheets, mounted on a thin frame backed with lights.

Installations were created with fibre optic, plaster and clay,” she explains. Gandhi will be exhibiting other works at the Shapero Modern Gallery in Mayfair, London, at the end of September and is part of a group show at the Amsterdam Whitney Gallery in New York and another in Milan at the end of October. “I’ll be showcasing a few pieces from ‘Let There be Light at the Pulse Art Fair in Miami during Art Basel this December. I do sell the art, and proceeds go to different charities.”
