‘Vignettes Passages Parables - The Madras Movement’ will feature four artists
An art exhibition titled ‘Vignettes Passages Parables - The Madras Movement’ will feature the prized collections of four artists.
“The Madras Movement represented a phase of art and a collective of artists between 1950 and 1985 who emphasised the importance of linearity and drawing as tools of expression,” said a release from Time and Space Gallery on Lavelle Road, where the exhibition will be held from February 3 to 17.
Art of C. Douglas, K. Muralidharan, S. Nandagopal and Palaniappan will be on display at the exhibition. And, art lovers can look forward to interacting with the aritists at the gallery on February 4 during a panel discussion.
C. Douglas uses the twin process of deconstruction and construction to create his art works on his preferred medium of paper; to tear to mutilate and then to recreate his metaphor for life.
As a refined surrealist painter, K. Muralidharan uses Indian mythology as the base for his works and achieves a beautiful synthesis of mythological interpretation with simple appealing forms.
S. Nandagopal’s ability to integrate linearity and flatness in his sculptures adds a painterly dimension to his work and imbues it with graphic quality.
Palaniappan’s works bears testimony to his tremendous understanding of line and form. An internationally acknowledged printmaker and artist, his works explore concepts that are intuitive and methodical at the same time.
