Transcending Pain: Somnath Hore

October 9-November 9, 2023

Akar Prakar, D 43, First Floor, Defence Colony, New Delhi, Delhi, India

Akar Prakar presents Transcending Pain, a solo show featuring the work of Somnath Hore.

The artist was witness to a long period of darkness, beginning in 1934 and stretching to 1949.The hurts inflicted upon him by those dark experiences reverberated deeply through his creativity. Quite early in his life, he experienced occasions of harsh reality which developed a robust self-confidence in the artist. He came in close contact with the Communist Party in 1941 before he became acquainted with the art world. Through many adverse circumstances, devastating, traumatic events and setbacks, he arrived at a self-realization that was to be the unshakable foundation of his artistic consciousness for the future.
