Talwar Gallery, New Delhi is thrilled to present Mirror on the Ground, an exhibition of recent works by Alwar Balasubramaniam (also known as Bala).

The works represent bourgeoning in Bala’s already-fertile career. Since returning to live in the countryside near Tirunelveli in Southern India, his work has grown in an ever deepening and evolving conversation with the environment around him. Nurtured by this relationship and his indefatigable curiosity that has sustained several decades of inquiry, this blooming appears across the varied works of Mirror on the Ground, which include painting, sculpture, drawing, in addition to works that blur the distinctions between media.

Like the spokes of a wheel, each reaching in its own direction but joined at their center, Bala’s recent works move outward in many directions, even as they testify to a common origin-point.
