In Gau-raksna Meeting, based on a photograph taken in Bombay, 1926, Dodiya shows Gandhi as one of the actors, seemingly absorbed in his lecture notes while the audience gathers. It is not the Mahatma but the intriguing mauve of a man's turban that seizes our attention. (Ranjit Hoskote, "Re-imagining Bapu", An Artist of Non-violence, Gallery Chemould, Mumbai, pg.20)
About Atul Dodiya - Limited edition offset printsThe collection "Re-Imagining Bapu" includes limited edition prints of paintings from Atul Dodiya’s solo show, “An Artist of Non-violence”, held at Gallery Chemould in 1999. Among the artists and figures who fuelled his artistic creations, Mahatma Gandhi featured in a large body of works. His fascination with Gandhi resulted in a series of works featuring Bapu from the 1980s onwards. As art critic Ranjit Hoskote puts it, Gandhi does not appear in Dodiya’s works as a person in a familiar setting, but as a force to be reckoned with. They showcase Atul’s versatility as an artist, and a “spectrum of moods through which Bapu passed...as a peaceful revolutionary.” (Gallery Chemould exhibition catalogue, 1999)
