Tapestry Reliefs and Paintings by S.G. Vasudev
4 November to 4 December 2016
S. G. Vasudev, one of the pioneers of the Madras Art movement, which happened in 60’s, has constantly upgraded his thoughts with changing times in his art works. Vasudev, being an excellent story teller, not only portrays joy on his canvas but also speaks about the pathos and loneliness of human lives. He has extended his subjects both in tapestries in silk and reliefs in copper. Marvellously sketching the shades of emotions, love, happiness, melancholy he has made his art works very lively.
Emami Chisel Art, 4th All India Annual Exhibition 2017
4 March to 4 April 2017
Not State patronage; its individual initiative that has taken forward contemporary Indian art in Kolkata. By choosing to be part of the adventure that lies in scouring the country for talent, Emami Chisel Art has widened its responsibility to promoting young artists in a systematic way. Young artists in the internet age are tuned into trends at major art centres abroad which are just a click away. This imports a certain sophistication into their thinking and art practice, replacing overcharged emotion and earnestness with irony and irreverence. Even when mythology and traditional iconography are mined. This kind of annual exercise certainly helps to nurture the cause of visual art.
