It was a moment that forever changed the geo-political and economic landscape of the 20th century and had a catalytic effect on India's struggle for Inde... [more]

Gopikrishna at Art Musings 11/22/13 Posted 11/22/13

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,... [more]

In Built to Kill, a short story by Venetian author Tiziano Scarpa, the protagonist is a frustrated architect from Venice. He feels so utterly constrained by the city’s architectural mandates to preserve a tourist-trapping golden past, that he starts killing tourists. Only he makes the murders look like suicides induced by Stendhal Syndrome, a psychosomatic disorder brought upon by an overdose of Renaissance beauty. A desperate attempt to prove that an urban space that doesn’t allow its... [more]

“There lived a redheaded man who had no eyes or ears. He didn’t have hair either, so he was called a redhead arbitrarily. He couldn’t talk because he had no mouth. He had no nose either. He didn’t even have arms or legs. He had no stomach, he had no back, he had no spine, and he had no innards at all. He didn’t have anything. So we don’t even know who we’re talking about. It’s better that we don’t talk about him any more.” - Daniil Kh... [more]

After the first quick round of Art Synthesis, the eyes quickly bookmark certain works and artists for the latter, slower rounds but the mind, hungry for a single thread of narrative, doesn't find any. On contemplation, that turns out to be the mind's problem, not the artists'. So used our minds are with picking up a curator's text on entrance and viewing the entire exhibition through that lense, that they suddenly feel ill-at-ease when they have to be the meaningmakers themselves. It turns out tha... [more]

It is like two broken toys which emerge as a new one. I have been very experimental since my childhood. Besides Acrylic or Oil colors, I have experimented a unique type of art, which no one has ever seen earlier. I also use to make arts using color pens and usi... [more]

One usually associates the intention of any art produced with the intention of being exhibited in a gallery, museum and public space such as a mall or a street. Studio and site specific art is a brave and relatively new and rarer concept that is still in a more experimental stage since they have limited viewership and still more restricted marketability. Mukesh Sharma’s latest works have been done in his studio in the back lanes of Vasant Kunj area of Delhi in two rooms of his studio.Conc... [more]

Live wiring Mukesh Sharma’s exhibition explores our conflicted relationship with technology. His artworks are mostly made from tech waste, reports Time Out A muddy road leads to a decrepit shanty, there are a few cars and bikes parked nearby; a few labourers are at work and a stray dog or two are napping. The shanty’s door is ajar, tiny bursts of colour can be gleaned on the walls and a little cooler whirrs in the corner. Unlike its neighbours, it isn’t a makeshift... [more]

Last year, at the India Art Fair, artist Mukesh Sharma displayed two very interesting paintings. Titled — Anarkali Disco Chali and Hello Honey Bunny, the mix media canvases had computer keys pasted on them in a circular motion, depicting the influence of technology in our lives. Continuing with the same concept, Sharma now has worked on a site-specific art project — A Terabyte-ing Serpentine that opened in the Capital yesterday, and is curated by Unnati Singh. A huge tree hangs inver... [more]
