Mindscapes – Art exhibition by Ann Delorme

Artist Ann Delorme’s extraordinary works in copper with patina, enamel and metallic paints are inspired by stories of people, places and circumstances. Special guests were invited for the preview of the exhibition at Gyaan Adab on 6th February.
At the opening, Ann shared her own story of her artistic journey. Ann grew up listening to her grandfather’s tales in the forests of Burhanpur. “Fantastic creatures and barely real people inspired his stories and my copper pictures,” she said.
Much of Ann’s copper work is also inspired by Hungarian painter and sculptor Blaise, from whom she has learnt various techniques in patina and enamelling. She revealed, “Copper is such a rich metal, in its raw state it speaks to me, the artist. I have a passion for this metal. I love to beat and mould, emboss, paint and wax it, then pass the palm of my hand over it to feel the contours of its soul.”
The patrons discussed techniques and inspirations with Ann over tea and snacks. During the course of the week, many visitors dropped in to admire Ann’s unique copper work.
