"Superconscious" marks an exploration into the realms of heightened awareness and introspection, as envisioned by British-born artist, Natasha Mistry. This exhibition presents a collection of Mistry's latest works, delving into the nexus of art and the human psyche.Central to the exhibition are seven large-scale oil paintings, crafted using mica-infused and interference oil paint. These pieces are the embodiment of Mistry's meditative practice, where each stroke and hue emanates from a deep, contemplative state, seeking to bridge the gap between the conscious and the subconscious. The use of mica, a mineral known for its reflective qualities, adds a dimensional depth and shimmer, inviting viewers to experience a dynamic interaction as they move around the paintings. This choice of medium is significant, symbolizing the ever-changing perspectives and illuminations one encounters in the journey of self-awareness."Superconscious" is not merely an exhibition; it is an invitation to embark on a reflective journey. It’s a show that bridges the gap between the seen and the unseen, the known and the mysterious. Mistry's art acts as a catalyst, urging viewers to delve into their own psyche, to explore the deeper layers of their consciousness, and to confront the beauty and complexity of their inner world.
