The Work of Art: Iteration in Multiples, Fragments and Reflection - Part III

The Guild presents the third iteration of The Work of Art: Iteration in Multiples, Fragments and Reflection, presenting a rare collection of Prints and Multiples by artists K. G. Subramanyan, A. Balasubramaniam, M. F. Husain, A. Ramachandran, Jeram Patel, Sakti Burman, Akbar Padamsee, Sudhir Patwardhan, Thota Vaikuntam, Gieve Patel, Amit Ambalal, Sunil Das, Prabhakar Kolte, Baiju Parthan.

These works are from diverse portfolios and different time periods. With the advent of computers and popularisation thereof for everyday work in mid to late 1990s,
Padamsee embraced new technologiesí design potential. He took to learning and playing with the new technology and produced new graphic designs, which he called Compugraphics. These are dynamic, swirling abstract forms unmatched for their sheer brilliance of colour and movement.   

Some of the Prints in this exhibition are from the portfolio of Santiniketan Society of Visual Art and Design, Santiniketan from the year 2003. Included from this portfolio are the works of Gieve Patel, Sunil Das, K. G. Subramanyan and Prabhakar Kolte.   

A portfolio of 12 Prints  Ď
Platographsí  titled Encounters in Time, by Sudhir Patwardhan, were first exhibited at Kochi Muziris Biennale, 2014 These were developed from his earlier drawings, and form a great collection of portraits; intriguing, evocative of silence, mystery and pathos.  

Amit Ambalal
has taken a number of same etchings and painted them in different shades of watercolours. A. Balasubramaniamís early etchings of late 1990s are intensely detailed and carry ambiguous titles like Archi elements, C. W., C. S. I., Grass-13(Remix).

Thota Vaikunthamís
early etchings in monochrome are portraits of native people of Telangana. These etchings are rare and noteworthy for their use of line and monochromes.

Jeram Patelís serigraph has the warmth of a late afternoon on a winterís day. A. Ramachandranís serigraphs were developed from the sketches he would make of the landscape and Bhilís of the area surrounding Udaipur. His engagement with the landscape and the people of these villages around Udaipur has been a lifelong engagement.

Baiju Parthanís
etching titled Engineered Fruit was produced at The Guild, Prints and Multiples workshop during 2005.

Look forward to welcoming you at The Guild, Alibaug
