http://wwv.asianage.com/arts/fold-and-beautiful-291 ‘Rainbow Lake, Rainbow Lotuses ‘The Folded Garden’ combines the Japanese art of origami with oil-on-canvas and enamel-paint-on-board creations to make for installations that move beyond paper, using materials like polypropylene, brass and silk Origami is an unusual choice for creating a series of art installations, one might think. Not simply because the Japanese art is entirely based on folding sheets of p... [more]

Ayesha Sultana at EXPERIMENTER May 9th - June 26th
Posted 8/21/14

Published in http://www.artindiamag.com/quarter_04_03_14/index.html Acts of drawing are sometimes summed up as dirtying the paper delicately,1 but Ayesha Sultana’s drawings in Outside the field of view, her first solo at Experimenter, Kolkata, mounted from the 9th of May to the 26th of June, are anything but delicate. Sultana ‘dirties’ the paper vigorously and obsessively, while reining in her mark-marking within perfectly geometric shapes. Nine graphite drawings of various si... [more]

Rabindranath Tagore at National Gallery of Modern Art - NGMA Mumbai April 19th, 2013 - July 15th, 2013
Posted 8/4/14

The total oeuvre of more than two thousand drawings and paintings were literally Rabindranath Tagore’s last harvest. Dated between 1928 to 1941, created by a man consumed, they are unlike anything else bearing his name, which would turn out to be their undoing. Disenchanted with being turned into an institute back home and a mystic world over, troubled by failing health and thoroughly shaken by the goings on in the family, the nation and the world, painting was both Tagore’s last roar an...

(Image: Asmita Rajiv, We The Puppets-2, 2014, Acrylic on Canvas, 24 x 30 inches; © Asmita Rajiv) Asmita Rajiv (b. 1973, India) My paintings depict the modern day lives of common men and women filled with dreams, aspirations, blunders, triumphs, disappointments, joys, regrets, sorrow and gratitude. These are the times of a 100 metre sprint. We sprint to a finish line, only to find that it is the beginning of a new start line. We race wearing our myopic lens through which we choose to... [more]

CHENNAI: From a distance, it is hard to figure out what the mess piled up on the banks of river Pamba is. The photograph is actually a surreal view of a sea of sodden dhotis abandoned by pilgrims as they end the hard trek to the Sabarimala shrine in Kerala. This pile will soon degrade into pulp and join other junk and sewage waste that flows down this once-pristine river that feeds the Periyar Tiger Reserve. This will include water bottles, the oil drained from the smashed coconut shel .. Read more... [more]

by
Naveen Kumar A, Lokesh B. H., Aishwaryan K, Mohan Kumar T. at Gallery Sumukha - Bangalore May 24th - June 21st
Posted 6/4/14

The artists have constructed a ritualistic way to make viewers encounter their collective pursuit. At the origin of the circumambulation is Lokesh B H’s colourful melancholy. A sense of deprivation is narrated, busses and people traveling in these busses have colour but the airplane is just not functional; it does not have a door or window. A cat is hunting for a fish bigger than its mouth. There is no center to most of the compositions instead is a synecdoche; when the center is painted... [more]

by
Amrita Sher-Gil at National Gallery Of Modern Art - NGMA Bengaluru March 30th - April 30th
Posted 4/15/14

Let me start with a small proviso which may get me booted out of your reading list. I saw the exhibition at the NGMA in New Delhi. However, given my views on the Bangalore NGMA (http://dillikidiva24.blogspot.in/2012/12/name-that-city.html), I'm pretty sure the exhibition will be similiar. ah well, here goes nothing.. If theres one painter from India people have heard of, chances are that it's Amrita Sher-Gill. She lived for only 28 years (1913- 1941) across two continents in four countries, was famous for her personal life (... [more]

Art Musings proudly presents a solo exhibition of Kerala based artist Gopikrishna featuring paintings in oil and watercolour. A consummate storyteller, Gopikrishna peoples his universe with myriad creatures and characters, each conveying their own subtle wisdom. His paintings appear as though they were pages from a book of fairytales. In his surrealistic canvas, one can witness the ordinary and the impossible, unity and solitude, illumination and darkness. About the works, says Gopikrishna, &l... [more]
