The Dragonfly is generally associated with transformation. It is a symbol of metamorphosis and transformation, joy and lightness of being, of the realm of emotions - an invitation to dive deeper into one's innermost feelings. The Lotus is generally associated with purity of the body, speech, mind and soul. In Buddhist and Hindu symbolism the Lotus is sacred. While rooted in the mud, its flowers blossom on long stalks as if floating above the muddy waters of attachment and desire. It is also symbolic of detachment as drops of water easily slide off its petals. Some cultures see it as a sign of rebirth due to the fact that it returns to the muddy waters, only to blossom again for a new day.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Suresh Muthukulam and Suresh Pushpangathan examine these spiritual symbols from a common platform but from their own perspectives and in their individualistic styles. Muthukulam appears to weave these two symbols into the lives and landscape of everyday life in his Kuttanad village merging the sacred with the profane. At times his deep rooted connection with mythology, leads him to interpret the theme from a mythical context. In his works, Suresh Pushpangathan plays with light, its ever changing hues and its effect on being. The Dragonfly, spirit of transformation and change hovers over the water examining the soul represented by the Lotus. Through his deft and sensitive strokes, he tries to capture the theme; the interplay of light and colour, knowing that each tone and every hue affects us profoundly. The two artists connect the abstract to the real with their evocative works on canvas, rice paper, silk, screens and wooden boxes.</p> Wed, 21 Sep 2016 07:48:46 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ind/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ind/Events/list
