rhea.gupte's Media: It is easier perhaps to write or create something which means nothing. However, truly sharing yours

It is easier perhaps to write or create something which means nothing. However, truly sharing yourself, your mind and your emotions is something that can make us feel vulnerable. Especially when practiced outside of a comfort group or safe place. My series Skinned delves into baring your true and bare self in order to understand each other at a deeper level. It is something that can be cultivated, as and when one feels ready to do so. Gently, patiently. ———————————————————————— #sharing #skinned #stilllife #arte #artseries #artist #contemporaryart #floralart #flowers #artwork #flowerphotography #allthingsbotanical #concept #capturingcolour #artexhibition #minimalism

I do judge creatives by whether or not they form a habit to credit. If you work with a team, respect each member for their contribution to the final product and give them that respect by mentioning their contribution. If you use images off the Internet, make the time to find out who created the image and make sure to credit the creator. If you work with interns, make sure to mention the capacity of work they did and add it to the project bio. Let’s treat others with kindness for the value they bring to a project and have supportive work environments, where each person, no matter their role, can truly thrive within and beyond that role. ———————————————————————— Dream team ahead!🖤 Photography by @rhea.gupte Model @archanaakilkumar Styling by @ashtonsashacameron @audreymariaallen Hair & Makeup by @ashtonsashacameron Client | @mountainandmoon Styling Credits | @mountainandmoon @hickeyhardware @ilka_the_label Location courtesy @sujanluxury ———————————————————————— #fashionphotography #palace #fashioncampaign #opulence #jewellerycampaign #aesthetic #photo #fashionphotographer #pastel #fashion #campaign

rhea.gupte's Media: Over the last week I received a few DMs asking me about how one should start with whatever one wish

Over the last week I received a few DMs asking me about how one should start with whatever one wishes to do. It is hard for somebody to know where you are in life, in your skill set, finances, and it is not something a stranger could truly give advise on, in a way that is actually pertaining to your situation, so I find this a tough one. But I will attempt to simply share some of my thoughts which may or may not be applicable to everybody. In my opinion, the answer to ‘How to start?’ is, just start. If you want to be an artist make art, if you want to be a dancer, dance, if you want to be an actor, act. Find places where you are able to do the things you wish to do. Join an art school, find a dance troupe or a theatre to perform at. Find people who do similar things, learn from them and teach them. You don’t have to have somebody tell you who you are, you can be it by doing it. Also think of your life and if you want to make money from your passion or just pursue it as a hobby. Neither is a wrong answer, only you know your circumstances and limitations of what you can and cannot do. (At least at this very moment) So if you are unable to overcome those limitations, work with them and be determined to make the best of them. If you do wish to pursue your passion as a career read about it everywhere. Use the Internet and read, read, read. Google every doubt that crosses your mind, learn everything you can and then apply it. Form your own learnings and learn to apply them too. Learn from your mistakes and be open to unlearning whatever you need to as time passes. Be creative not just in your craft but with how you approach your life, as there are no fixed paths. If you decide to pursue your passion as a hobby, remember to do it, make time for it and enjoy it. ^_^ — I am an artist so I make something daily either visually or through words. Here is something soothing I created from my Flowers For series. ———————————————————————— #stilllife #art #photography #tv_stilllife #anthurium #still_life_gallery #calm_collected #aquietstyle #stilllifephotography #contemporaryart #studio #canon #flowers #slowdownwithstills #simpleandstill

rhea.gupte's Media: For those who have lost loved ones. It is hard to convert the pain, grief and emptiness into a warm

For those who have lost loved ones. It is hard to convert the pain, grief and emptiness into a warm and nurturing emotion. It is hard to accept that a part of the heart may always be missing. It feels like a change too big to wrap ourselves around. And yet time passes with no regard for our loss, and though our world has turned upside down, the world turns just the same. So everyday we will our mind to take a step to be better. But the mind wishes it’s own time and there are days when it prefers to take several steps backward. So we accept every emotion that comes our way and treat ourselves with kindness, nurturing our thoughts, hearts and memories with care. ———————————————————————— #selfcare #poetry #onloss #writing #love #poet #kindness #memories #losingsomeone #healing

rhea.gupte's Media: All work is not ’content’. All work is not created with the vision of filling up one’s social media

All work is not ’content’. All work is not created with the vision of filling up one’s social media, increasing a number on these platforms, soliciting buying or getting paid to post something. As soon as one thinks of their work as ‘content’ they are grappling for the next thing to post, the next thing to generate actions and reactions around. Why not create wholly for the purpose of creating and share fully for the purpose of sharing? Let’s create art instead. All kinds of art. Thoughtful and thoughtless, expressive and activist, emotional and emotionless. Let’s create meaningless art and meaningful art. And let’s stop referring to hard work as content. The world is not just about social media and what is or isn’t posted. Creation is not about social media. Creation is not for the purpose of social media. Creation is for self-growth, for exploration, for expressing, for feeling ones own fragility and emotions. One creates inspite and social media exists despite. Let’s re-learn to appreciate photographs, paintings and other 2D works like one would films and songs, the latter would hardly ever be referred to as ‘content.’ Sometimes the medium is the demise of a movement, and social media in all its beauty can be detrimental to how one creates and consumes, especially images. So let’s make from our hearts, for the purpose of making. Not for filling a square. And let’s learn to appreciate what has been created beyond the boundaries of that square. Let’s share from our hearts too, for the sake of purely sharing, for starting conversations, for building a community. Not a lot of people grow up aspiring to make content, but everybody dreams of making some form of art. ———————————————————————— #dreamsandart #beinganartist #art #artworks #sharingfromtheheart #artwork #arte #sunset #fashionphotography #digitalart #artwork #digitalmanipulation #photoshop #adobe #artist #digitalartist #visualartist #digitalartist #sea #beach

rhea.gupte's Media: I have always enjoyed working as a freelancer, to the point where I am very, very passionate about

I have always enjoyed working as a freelancer, to the point where I am very, very passionate about doing it well, setting my own rules and respecting myself and the people I work with. As a growing industry (especially in India) there is a lot we can do to make it better for newcomers stepping in. I have learnt quite a bit in my twelve years of freelancing. It is a career choice with many perks and many, many challenges. I’m putting down a few pointers for all you freelancers out there. - keep your portfolio updated so you can email it or direct people to it - save, save, save a large portion of every payment you earn - work on personal projects in your downtime and also prioritise working on personal projects so you can grow beyond the work you regularly get - work on further developing your skills in the areas you feel yourself lacking and where you wish to explore - work on showing your work online, within a creative community or wherever you find it of value to you to display your work - collaborate with other creatives you know or connect with - have the conviction to reach out to potential clients whom you are interested in working with and do it mindfully - make a support group to talk about where you are and where you want to be, could be with family or friends or other creatives, or a combination - use time to do things you enjoy and which make you grow, like reading, a sport, cooking, adventuring ^_^ developing a hobby, could be anything! - respect your time and that of others and be professional and punctual - in times when you don’t get work — Work more! I’m aiming to share more about my learnings and experiences in the near future. If you have any specific points you’d like me to address I’d be happy to share my thoughts on them. ^_^———————————————————————— #freelance #freelancing #visualartist #sky #moon #photographer #dreamy #dreamscape #moonlit #sharing #community #freelancerinindia #create

rhea.gupte's Media: I had a few of you ask me via direct message what circular fashion is or what circularity in fashio

I had a few of you ask me via direct message what circular fashion is or what circularity in fashion stands for. I will try my best to explain it as per my understanding. Those who can contribute their knowledge to this topic, please do add to my points or correct me if I have misunderstood any part of this. I am trying to learn about these concepts to the best of my ability but I am no expert. The intention of circular fashion is to have all fashion related products be useful and wearable for as long as possible in very high quality through multiple wears and multiple wearers, and, at the end of their lifespan, are able to go back to our biosphere without causing it any harm and in fact providing it with nourishment. In order for this to happen, our clothes need to be made, at every stage of the process, with circularity in mind. Right from the way the crop for our clothing is grown and spun, how a product is produced, to any raw material attached to the garment like buttons, bows, embellishments etc. Every step of the way, the garment or product has to be treated in a way that is non-toxic and eco-friendly in order to enable it to become a part of our environment once again. This is where the fashion industry aims to head and it is a shame we haven’t always treated our resources from earth with care. But we can still start, educate ourselves and take as many steps as we are able to.

For IKKIVI's summer 2019 campaign titled — Take Me To The Sea — I was inspired by the concept of circularity. I wanted to bring about a narrative of how, if it were a utopian world, every piece of clothing could go back to earth, where it came from, in its entirety. I hope for these images to resonate as a connection to having circularity in the fashion industry, along with starting conversations about how we often discard, reject and consume clothing mindlessly. Through this photo series I also continue my exploration of giving clothes human qualities and having them emote. By making clothing the heroes of this campaign, I hope to have them seen as possessions for life rather than something one wears only for a single summer.

It is. We are harsh with ourselves. A thought, an experience, a dialogue, can, at times, knock ourselves off everything we believe of ourselves. Why do we let that happen? We never treat the people we love that way. We give them the benefit of the doubt, we are gentle, we are calm. We are great at giving advice about self-love but not practising it fully, entirely and with acceptance. Self-love, is not about never admitting to your own mistakes and faults, or not being open to improvements. It is about approaching yourself with kindness and care. About accepting who you are and being open to changing it, if that change is something that will grow you. It is about expressing the same love towards yourself that you would towards somebody you love and holding onto that love even in difficulties and challenging times. ——————————————————————— #selflove #selfcare #loveyourself #textbasedart #poet #mentalhealth #mindfulness #mindset #love #kindness #writing #writingsociety #selfcaresundays

A few of my selected works are exhibited online at @siilkgallery along with an interview. I do always end up feeling, when I re-read my interviews, that I could have answered every single question so much better, no matter how long and how much care I take to answer every question honestly and openly. The link to the interview is in my Instagram stories for the day. ———————————————————————— #visualart #visualartist #contemporaryart #artist #photography #artwork #digitalart #arte #arts #onlineexhibition #artgallery #surrealism #minimal #modernart #makearteveryday #kunst #digitalartist

Sometimes I create simply for the sake of aesthetic exploration. Not often, but I do. No feelings, no emotions, no dialogue, no message, simply colour over colour. It is a harmonious, cohesive, tranquil process which instantly becomes joyful. Colours give me joy. And there, I unknowingly let feelings slip in. ——————————————————————— Photography, Styling, Creative Conceptualisation | @rhea.gupte Model | @irene_augustin at @animacreatives Hair & Makeup | @lailadalal Client | @varnikaaroraofficial ——————————————————————— #fashionphotography #pastel #freelance #shotwithlove #fashionphotographer #fashionart #agameoftones #artofvisuals #createcommune #thevisualcollective #portraitphotographer

[1/3] As a child I'd sing, run, climb rocks, swim to my heart’s content. I would write poems, I'd read voraciously. I'd have the shortest hair which my Baba would take me to get cut every other month on his scooter at the saloon he would go to. I'd talk a lot. Especially to my Mum and my sister and my closest friends. I was full of dreams and ideas and stories. I wanted to do so much. I wanted to be an animator and an author and a singer, a poet, a dancer, a voice actor, I even wanted to join the military at one point. Even as a kid, my mind was telling me that I can do anything I wish to and there was no need to necessarily choose just one. I am so much older now and it feels like such a long life already. I have done many things in these twenty eight years, pursued my dreams, switched paths multiple times and always challenged myself. I have grown my mind to be stronger, calmer, patient, more and more loving. I have learnt to take my time with things which truly need time. I have developed the ability to form three year and five year plans which were impossible for me to envision just a year ago. With time, my dreams and ambitions have grown and I do believe one can achieve anything with discipline, mindfulness and keeping our closest ones, closest.

[2/3] Over all of these years, I have also had to struggle, apart from other things, with my own mind. There have been several times when I have felt over-sensitive, had too much self-doubt, felt inadequate and impatient. These feelings can be crippling. They made me not believe in myself from time to time. And there are still those days when I feel overwhelmed with all that is happening. I have learnt to be mindful of these feelings and to catch myself when I feel them. I am also slowly learning to accept exactly how I feel without having to act upon it; just letting myself be immersed in acceptance and then slowly beginning to work on it, in a way that will allow me to grow from those feelings. I see myself, slowly, very slowly, getting better at being aware. I am better at taking time off for myself and really enjoying being present and relaxed. I still remember, I once went three years without taking a proper mental detachment from work, not even weekends. I wouldn't recommend it to anybody. The more I grow, the more I understand the value in taking care of myself and encouraging people around me to take care of themselves and to take time for themselves. In my work, I take inspiration from all of these thoughts. From the ones which pull me down and the ones which make me sore. And I create with them all. I have been growing my practise as a visual artist since the last three years. The art world was completely new for me, so I had to take time to understand how it works, read a lot about it and figure out what I want to do in it. The most joyful thing about making art to me is the making itself. Since last year, I have also had the opportunity to exhibit my work at a few different places which has been a surreal experience. My next two showcases are in Germany and South Korea over the next couple of months, I'll share more about these closer to the exhibition dates. I am slowly learning 3D modelling this year. The idea of being able to create ANYTHING just with a computer, no waste, no other resources, inspires me immensely.

[3/3] I had decided to give photography a shot five years back and I am so grateful I did. As a self taught photographer, it was a long process of learning, slowly developing my portfolio and building a body of work. I have come a long way in my vision and skill-set and I still have a long, long way to go. All my clients who trusted my vision completely and hired me for their campaigns, lookbooks and editorials, I feel so grateful and motivated to push myself even further in the months and years to come. Writing has always been like breathing to me and is something I do pretty much daily. This time around I plan on sharing a lot of my work with all over you. A few of my poems have been published with some indie presses and publications this year. I am also working on a few different book ideas which I will update you on over the next few years as I see some progress, I am taking this very slowly and calmly. Since the past year and half, I have been working with IKKIVI as their Creative Director. Being a freelancer all my life, working with a single client over this long a period of time is new to me. But when Nivi, the founder, approached me about the position, I knew it would be a perfect fit. It has been one of my most fulfilling ongoing long term projects till date and I have grown to love our small team like family. Apart from all this, I did a few completely new things too this year. I designed a website for a client, did a bunch of graphic design too, started meditating every single day, although I do fall asleep halfway more often than not. And there are a few other things I have been dabbling in, I am still learning to speak Japanese (at a very slow pace), learning to play the drums (even slower), and have gotten back a little bit to singing and swimming. I feel closest to my younger self at this stage. Full of dreams and ideas and optimism.
