Presented by Emami Art, the exhibition is a survey show of Sibaprasad Karchaudhuri, an extraordinary yet not-so-widely-known abstract artist from Bengal, and focuses on the seminal works from different phases of his immensely productive career that spans over forty years. On display is a large body of his paintings, drawings, prints and tapestries, along with archival material, many of which are being shown for the first time.
The show follows the artist’s journey as a significant Indian artist who has striven to develop a unique abstract language. His notable works are characterized by his subtle experiment with elementary forms and the use of vibrant colours. He has not entirely abandoned the visible world, but it appears in his work as reduced abstract forms combined with the sense of place and memory.
