Gallery Maskara presents Reworkings, T. Venkanna’s solo show of paintings which revisit and reinterpret painted works of the past.
Consciously going beyond the preoccupation with the new in favour of adaptation, revision, and reinvention, Venkanna transposes chosen motifs and compositions into newer settings. Through repetition, he experiments with visual variation, and explores the subjects further, highlighting nuances of tone and texture afforded by the unique qualities of different media. Works in this show span eighteen years – from his early years as an artist, until the present. All major mediums employed by Venkanna are represented including drawing, printmaking, painting, and embroidery.
