In Chancellor Gandhi, the newsreel comes to life as Gandhi and a host of men march in a fluid rhythm of white robes. This painting registers the basic colour code that Dodiya uses throughout the Gandhi series: a crisp Payne's grey and a spectral, yellowish white that emerges from a dilute raw umber wash; Gandhi himself is painted in burnt sienna, which in this chromatic context emanates a reassuring warmth and radiance. (Ranjit Hoskote, "Re-imagining Bapu", An Artist of Non-violence, Gallery Chemould, Mumbai, pg.20-21)
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)
