Current exhibition artist focus: Bharat Sikka

Thu May 13 10:00:00 2021

Bharat Sikka’s Matter series, muted tones almost too sleek enlaced with silver and monochromatic colors of white and grey connect the series of images. The stereotypical imagery of India with its vibrant hues, busy streets and abundance of culture through forms of exotic gaze is broken and perhaps simultaneously revived by the artist. Sikka mixes high and low art, familiarity and alienation, energy and despair, transforming these imageries through a decade long macabre allure. Observers wonder if these images are the perfect representation of contemporary India or a curated impulsion of emotions by the artist, for it is both natural yet artificial and undermines any form of confinement.
