Noise is the default background setting in the modern world and our ears are perhaps the most used and abused sensory organ. As the quantum of noise rises to its peak, so does the wish for silence, which has turned into a brand-new luxury amenity.
Artist Som Maitra, through his art series titled ‘Surround consciousness’, ups the ante in finding silence (inner and outward) in extreme chaos.
These 10 art work that comprise his work highlight the mixed approach to what Som calls ‘realization’, depicting the changes that surround ‘Us’ — the thoughts and dramatic recognitions of our inner self and the immediate environment.
Here’s a sneak peek at his creations:
1.The Great Gig
3.Kailash Man Sarovar
4.The Fault Line
7.Dance of Life
8.What’s Your Resolve?
9.Just A Matter Of Time
10.Agneepath (The Path Of Fire) — a tribute to Harivansh Rai Bachchan's poem ‘Agneepath’, which was immortalized by Amitabh Bachchan's 1990 film of the same name.
The exhibition was launched on May 13th & 14th,2022, as a part of the “Chester County Studio Tour” and guests have enjoyed trying their hands with live demos, apart from the virtual experience.
