About GoodHomes for Art
GoodHomes for Art – a public art initiative is pioneered by GoodHomes – a décor and design magazine.
A week-long celebration of art which explores the possibilities of blurring the boundaries between art and the common man. 
The thought was to break the mindset that art is elitist and thereby creating awareness and encouraging education about art.  
The philosophy was to make art an integral part of our lives, to integrate art into our cityscape, and to know art in all its manifestations.

GoodHomes for Art – 2013
The second edition of the Art Week took forward its activities with renewed impetus to excellence. We opened with a show dedicated to the various forms of art curated Chameleon Art Projects, and held at Gallery 7, Mumbai. The first day witnessed a live installation conceptualized by sculptor Arzan Khambatta at the Phoenix Market City, the showcasing of Reena Kallat’s installation ‘Light leaks, winds meet where the waters spill deceit’ at the Times Tower, Lower Parel and an art competition for students of art at The Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalay. The days that followed saw an Art Flea Market, Live Performances and installations, Exhibitions, Pop-up Art Galleries, Art Trails etc.

Ranjani Shettar: Night skies and daydreams

The New York Times
Art in Review

By Holland Cotter | September 12, 2014

Ranjani Shettar’s ‘Flight of the Butterfly’ in coffee tree wood, with automobile paint and boltsTalwar Gallery, New York | New Delhi

Ms. Shettar was trained in art school in Bangalore, India, but has always found formal sources for her abstract work in materials associated with the craft traditions of Karnataka, the southwestern state where she lives and works.

For another, very different suspended piece from 2007, “Fire in the Belly,” she carved more than a dozen largish biomorphic shapes from local acacia wood, painted them a glossy, metallic yellow-green and suspended them at varying heights. They suggest a school of morphing amoebas, or a bunch of Brancusis gone rogue.

A 2014 sculpture, “Flight of the Butterfly,” stands on the floor but looks as if it could easily lift off. It’s composed of gnarly lightweight coffee-wood branches bolted together to form a tangled enclosure and colored with bright turquoise automotive paint. The branches are oddly homely; they look like bones. The paint is thick and unpretty. Ms. Shettar has done nothing to hide the metal bolts that hold everything together.

A resulting slight sense of awkwardness is what makes her art so persuasive: It indicates that the hand is there; the material is unelevated; the technology is organic. Pure abstraction, with its implication of perfection, is beside the point. In Ms. Shettar’s transubstantiated modernism, local nature and culture have their way.

green design, eco design, sustainable design, Omid Asadi, cut leaves, leaf art, nature art, leaf collecting
Asadi likes to think of his leaf artistry as a way of looking at the world differently, noticing the beauty of the nature around us in a new way. He originally began collecting fallen leaves as he noticed other people stomping all over them without noticing their color or beauty. He prefers to use maple leaves, for their inspiring shape as well as the availability of them in his area.
Inspired by paper cutting artists, Asadi decided to put his blade to the durable and tough leaves he would collect, revealing images as he worked. With his blade, the artist carefully uses the subtractive method to create pieces, cutting away eyes and stripes to reveal a tiger, thick curved lines showing an eagle’s head or splitting a leaf in two to create a more elaborate piece of art. Asadi also lets the shape of his found leaves inspire what he creates, turning oblong leaves into pictures of eyes or feathers.
Asadi’s cut leaves inspire a slew of autumn craft projects, challenging art and nature lovers to make their own creations out of fallen leaves.
