Jinal Gada is a young artist from Mumbai, who has been honing her skills at black and white   imagery, working with charcoals.

Ever since her student years, Jinal had a penchant for using charcoals as a preparatory medium prior to embarking on the actual painting – a historical detail that seemed to intrigue and influence her.

I loved the softness of the drawing edge of charcoal stick and soon discovered that charcoals are an end in itself and are capable in producing finished works characterized by various textures and a rich range of values,” says Jinal.  “It also favours broad vigorous draftsman-ship with an emphasis on mass and movement rather than precision,” she continues.

Often known to make preparatory sketches on the spot and then work with available references, she explores inanimate objects as well as human and animal visages with aplomb. In her current series, the artist takes the view through a glimpse of her vast repertoire -  monkeys to horses and goats, human figures to landscapes; and seascapes. Mostly brushwork, the artist shows her prowess with the charcoal medium. She is equally proficient with pastels and oils on canvas. 

An exhibition not to be missed!
