For The Art Show 2022, David Klein Gallery will present new work by the Detroit based contemporary artist, Neha Vedpathak.
Vedpathak’s striking, mostly abstract compositions, are part painting and part construction. She uses the self-invented, rigorous technique of separating Japanese handmade paper with a tiny pin. The resulting plucked paper resembles beautifully colored swaths of lace-like fabric in nuanced, abstract compositions. There is a spiritual aspect to Vedpathak’s practice; her slow, repetitive, disciplined process is like meditative chanting tuned to a slower pace.
Vedpathak has been an artist-in-residence at Anderson Ranch Art Center, Aspen; Fountainhead Residency, FL; Skopelos Foundation for the Arts, Greece; Bharat Bhavan Graphic Studio, India and at the Centre d’Art-Marnay Art Centre, France. Her work has been exhibited in multiple institutions including ASU Art Museum, Tempe, AZ; The Weatherspoon Museum, Greensboro, NC; The Poetry Foundation, Chicago, IL and The Detroit Institute of Arts, Detroit, MI. In addition, she has exhibited widely at galleries in the U.S. and abroad. Vedpathak’s solo exhibition, Time (Constant, Suspended, Collapsed), was presented at the Flint Institute of Arts, Flint, Michigan in 2021.
