Unveiling crystal Cities in Mumbai
Panda’s ideas of realism and his brilliance of evocative patterns are seen in the manner in which he weaves human behaviour with islands of existential fantasy, writes Uma Nair.
Echoes of resonance and intensity come to the fore in Jagannath Panda's solo unveiling Crystal Cities that travels to Dr Bhau Daji Lad Museum from Vadehras in Delhi. Odisha born Panda who hails from a family of pundits is a voracious reader and his realistic brilliance is used for creating works that have a satirical slant. At Vadehras his sculptures though only four in number have a salient story to tell.
