(Art Review :: Volume 17 SILKY MOUNTAINS)
Here is a series of collages that evoke the spirit of the mountains with dignified sensitivity and aesthetic finesse. Each work on display reveals, in its own unique way, a different aspect of those prehistoric wonders. The play of line, layer and colour, create a visual mood and tone in each frame, bringing out a hidden life sunk deep in seams and slabs of rock and soil. Each composition is seamlessly brought together by a faint wash of light – creating a visual metaphor for the detached grandeur of mountain, suffused with sacred beauty.
Manjusha Ganguly has mastered the art of collage creation by pushing the limits of technique to effect a heightened visual sensitivity that reveals, through a delicately layered density, the otherwise invisible transcendental power of Nature in the simplicity of its existence.
In the artist’s own words, “This exhibition of collages represents the expression of intimacy and sensitivity in nature that captivated me while wandering in the magical mountains. In my work, the discerning eye will relate the evident transparency among the pictured mountains, as their sensitivity and intimacy towards each other. This embodies my discovery of the mountains as soft thoughtful beings in contrast to one’s usual perception of them as pensive and formidable giants.”
