Exploring the Popular Terracottas and Bronzes: Subrata Biswas

April 16-May 14, 2022

Aakriti Art Gallery, Orbit Enclave, 1st Floor 12/3A, Hungerford Street, Kolkata, West Bengal, India

Aakriti Art Gallery presents terracotta and bronze works by Subrata Biswas in an exhibition titled Exploring the Popular Terracottas and Bronzes.

The Sculptor Subrata Biswas simultaneously addresses two perennial problems that our modern sculpture has very often to confront. First is the question of identity, the second is that of socio-temporal commitment. Subrata through his skill and meditative tackling of forms brings out assimilation within the two. His expressions are apparently simple, sonorous, witty, humorous, yet very much critical in postulating the intrinsic turmoil of life. Through apparent ludicrousness he unfolds the tragic turmoil of reality. Primitivity and folk traditions have played a significant role in his approach towards form, which will be highlighted at this exhibition.
