Saskia Fernando Gallery, 41 Horton Pl, Colombo, Sri Lanka

Hashan Cooray, Dance with God

Saskia Fernando Gallery presents Dystopia by Hashan Cooray – the artist’s fifth solo exhibition with the gallery.

Featuring gestural paintings and two installations, the work confronts the complex relationship between an individual and the socio-political systems within which they exist – stirring a conversation on the inherent struggles of the human condition and its psychosis. Hashan Cooray’s interdisciplinary practice that blends drawing, painting, digital art, installation, and mixed media breaks away from traditional portraiture to uncover the human psyche. Repurposing propaganda posters and commercial advertisements, Cooray attempts to confront the way in which society is caught up in the web of nationalism, capitalism, and consumerism. His work has been featured in both group and solo exhibitions at Saskia Fernando Gallery, Lionel Wendt Art Centre and JDA Gallery. The artist has also been featured in the Imago Mundi Book Project published by the Benetton Foundation and is featured in multiple private collections in Sri Lanka.
