Fashion Designers Rohit Gandhi and Rahul Khanna, who helm the Palette Art Gallery, said, “Bringing a seductive edge to the visual arts the sculptural form that occupies space in the third dimension is indeed an exciting medium of expression. It also becomes extremely relevant to encourage a physical interaction with art, as Sculptures negotiates material facts, networks ideas and reflects its place, it’s society and it’s time – Our time. Sculpture questions our relationship to objects, to search for the other side of the commodity object.”
