DESCRIPTION

Art Musings is presenting a solo exhibition of one of India’s most prominent artists Paresh Maity entitled Symphony of Silence. His last solo exhibition in Mumbai, Montage: Moments, Memories was with Art Musings in 2009. The exhibition brings together works in diverse mediums, including painting, sculpture and video. This new body of works sees the artist approach his subjects with new expression. There is a modernity of forms and shapes. The colors are vibrant, and echo the passion of the artist. The focus is on the figure, specifically the faces, with their myriad expressions, closely cropped and juxtaposed with their surroundings. Maity’s sculptural works are typical of his style - dynamic, strong and arresting. The bold lines, the piercing gaze and the painting over the sculptures give them a unique identity. Says Maity, “The most important inspiration in my work is nature. Sitting on the banks of the river, watching the reflections of the sky in the water, looking at the moods of the moving water and watching the boats…these images haunted me long after I left my home in Tamluk. I began scribbling at the age of eight, the boat was the first image I drew and this is where my journey began. My journeys through the sand dunes of Rajasthan, the backwaters of Kerala, the canals of Venice, Egypt, Turkey, Japan, have all been captured in my works. As an artist, I observe, perceive and imagine forms, which I then express in my art.”
