For want of a nail the shoe was lost.
For want of a shoe the horse was lost.
For want of a horse the rider was lost.
For want of a rider the message was lost.
For want of a message the battle was lost.
For want of a battle the kingdom was lost.
And all for the want of a horseshoe nail.
Neha Lavingia’s paintings are precise, evocative and brief, the poetics of the minimal that the poet has mastered. She insists onlooking, not merely seeing and paying attention to details with a childlike curiosity. Hairline cracks on walls sprouting weeds, birds perched on electric wires, patterns created by exposed bricks, an aerial view of a river winding through dense foliage; it is deceptively easy to describe her works, ‘deceptive’ being the operative word here. The works have to be seen to experience their intimate delicacy bordering on abstraction that is on offer in their miniature scale. She brings us back the small wonders of life that one so jaded overlooks, which hold the little truths of the universe within them.
