DIPALEE DAROZ works out of her Delhi studio, practicing and researching within the ceramic medium. She has participated in numerous group shows including Mutable, Luminous, Transition / Tradition, and Digging Time recently shown in Mumbai and Delhi. She had four solo shows at Alliance Francaise, Pundole Art Gallery, Art Alive Gallery and Gallery Nvya. The recipient of a National Scholarship and a Junior Fellowship from the Ministry of Culture, she received a Crafts Museum grant to study traditional Indian black pottery of Azamgarh. She was awarded the Charles Wallace grant to study in the UK. She participated in a residency program at Jingdezhen, China in 2008 and the 2018 International Artists Symposium in Bihar.

Dipalee Daroz’s project consists of multiple objects presented from varied perspectives. They elaborate an Indian worldview that is panoramic and pluralistic. She seeks to expand perception by engaging the tangible senses in a holistic manner, exploring the two-fold dimension of embodiment and perception within the contours of her works. The viewer and the viewed sculptures and wall installation are interconnected and seek a consonance between the tangible sensed and the intangible perceived. The sculptures are intuitively modeled, imaginative devices that measure perception and create an optical depth between the natural and the real through the use of texture, patina and form.

The physical character of the objects is delineated through conscious manipulations of smoky, rusted surfaces that suggest ageing, cycles of time and alternate dimensions. They invite a multi-dimensional approach to both the objects and the activated space around them. Dipalee deliberately eschews known processes, releasing control and submitting to the accidental to make space for unexpected insight.
