Four Kolkata artists' sculpture show at Artists' Centre

Thursday, May 08, 2014

The bull is the theme of most of the works by four artists who are holding their sculpture show at the Artists' Centre. The artists: Tapas Sarkar, Somnath Chakraborty, Chandan Roy and Subrata Paul.

Tapas Sarkar brings out the extraordinary power of the bull. The bull has a gentle face. It does not answer to the image created by man. It is a solid, brown-red form of a super strong creature. On its strong body, there are white marks -- which increases the shine of the creature. Its tail is curled up. The legs are small but they present images of strength.

Tapas Sarkar has evidently excellent visual powers. What we see is an awesome bull, which is innocent and gentle. The pose reveals the restrained, huge power.

Sarkar has transformed the image of the bull -- which most people have. It is a creature which attracts our admiration and love. If it has fury and an aggressive stance, it is not seen. It is contained.

An excellent piece of sculpture. The sculpture is in bronze. Another work by him entitled ‘Musical Call' is equally of high calibre make.

Somnath Chakraborty has some elaborately worked out sculpture titled 'Family' and 'Couple'. In the ‘Family’ the mother, father and child have their, elongated bent necks and tiny faces in which features are not seen. In ‘Couple’, the man and woman are lost in embrace but between them is an open huge hole. We cannot make out what this mysterious hole is about.

The Kolkata artists' exhibition will go on till May 11. Contact: 09831225906 and 09433465495.
