Collection that is both modern, traditional
The plush art gallery, Art Spice at one of a leading five star hotel, The Metropolitan Hotel & Spa, on November 24, presented the inauguration ceremony of an enthralling exhibition of rare artworks of two dynamic creators – C. Dakshinamoorthy, the late master-sculptor of India, and P. Gnana, a leading sculptor-painter of Singapore in its exhibition 'Poignance.'
C. Dakshinamoorthy is appreciated internationally for his charismatic granite sculptures of the female form.
Over finest wines and hors d'oeuvres, the incandescent event at the Capital was inaugurated by noted Atul Vohra, Managing Partner, Transearch India amidst all the high profile personalities and dignitaries like Artist Neeraj Gupta, Social Activist Parull Mahaajan, Artist Geeta Dass from Mumbai amongst others.
Curated by Vidhya Gnana Gouresan, 'Poignance' is a simple but soulful word, which aptly elucidates the very essence of the alluring collection in this significant showcase of sculptures and paintings by effervescent creators. This exhibition promises to connect the viewers to the deepest human chord of emotive capacity.
Speaking about the exhibition, Babita Gupta, Director, Art Spice says, "Both the artists have showcased their rarest collections that are so well appreciated nationally and internationally. They have achieved a style that is both ancient and modern at the same time. Dakshinamoorthy's distortion of the human figure is influenced by tribal and folk art. He is well-known, for his charismatic granite sculptures of the female form, chiselled in an engaging, stylistic demeanour that is unquestionably cubist. Whereas, the themes and subjects of P Gnana paintings and sculptures are of a universal nature, it is something that comes uncultivated and straight from his heart".
