An exhibition at the Art Musings by well-known painters shows that they can excel in sculpture too. Artists like Shakti Burman or Paresh Maity are known for their paintings but not sculpture. Five artists are showing their works: K.S. Radhakrishnan, Satish Gujral, S. Nandagopal, Paresh Maity, Sakti Burman.
Satish Gujral has bronze sculpture at the show which begins today. The use of Patina and colour in the works creates an aesthetic synergy. Gujral is 3-time national award winner. The Belgian government honoured Gujral with the Order of the Crown for designing the Belgian embassy.
Nandagopal’s sculpture is in copper and brass. His attitude is traditional but there is a touch of the modern.
Paresh Maity has been of late experimenting with sculpture.
Sakti Burman, one of India’s top-most successful painters also attempts sculpture. They look like 3-dimensional translations of his paintings. The sources of his inspiration seems to be the Ajanta Caves and Italian Renaissance frescos.
Radhakrishnan has figurative works at the show. One of the central themes of his paintings is sensuality. He works in bronze, beewax and Plaster of Paris.
The exhibition ends on Sept. 14.
