Gieve Patel and Sudhir Patwardhan are artists who engage in a dialogue through their work addressing issues of fragmentation, materiality and isolation. There's a fundamental similarity in the visual language employed by Patel and Patwardhan. Though both engage with the urban landscape and scenes from the street, they approach their works in different ways. The present catalogue of the joint exhibition by Patel and Patwardhan held at Bose Pacia includes essay by Ranjit Hoskote, writings by the artists and artist biographies.
