Samara Art Gallery
Art has various hidden meanings, metaphors, narrative stories. In Gajjar's works he has used TIME and SPEED as a base line. Time is an important part of our life and that can’t be depicted as a frozen thing. It should be experienced and the movement must be felt, so his works are interactive. He considers each work of art as interactive but for him spectators are equally a part of the work. Viewers participation is very important for an art work. He mostly works with interactive mediums and concepts.
Gajjar's recent series of works are based on impression ‘on’ a coin and ‘of’ the coin. Coins are not only meant for money but it also talks about history and past and the travel from one time to another creating an impact on culture. He has done research on coins, how they are made and what it symbolized and how time can play an important role in that. Recent works on paper are with different impression of coins where in impressions are taken from rusted coins so it gives me such an effect of the coin.
