Organic Reverie

Is the earth alive? This is a question that poets, philosophers, scientists and sociologists have been trying to find the answer to since time immemorial. In the early 1970s, chemist James E. Lovelock and biologist Lynn Margulis came up with the The Gaia Hypothesis. It theorised that the earth is a living organism that regulates and maintains all the natural processes — an entity that is greater than the sum of all of its living and nonliving aspects. If this has caught your intrigue, you must check out a visual representation of the quest in the art exhibition Organic Reverie, which has debuted in town recently at Gallery Time & Space.

Manisha Gopinath takes a leaf out of nature’s book of designs

“Pottery was the outlet I didn’t know I needed,” says Manisha Gopinath, talking about how a hobby eventually turned into an all-consuming passion. “What surprises me even today is that though I can’t draw, I can create 3D images. It came to me so organically, there is no way of explaining how it came about,” adds the sculptor who has been working with ceramics for the past 15 years.

Meaning in the mundane

Age is just a number, says 88-year-old Pune-based artist Nisreen Moochhala. “I do not feel intimidated by it.” By all accounts, Moochhala has had an interesting journey in art. Born in 1935, and schooled in Surat, Moochhala went on to complete her Diploma in Painting from the Sir J J School of Arts, Bombay (now Mumbai) in 1957. Such was her confidence in her own competence and abilities that she insisted on and secured (after a test) direct admission into the second year of the diploma course.She also completed her postgraduate study in Mural Decoration at the J J School. Fondly recalling her association with the institution, Moochhala feels that her academic drill helped in honing up her skills in portraiture, still life, anatomy studies, design and composition. Following her marriage in 1958, she moved to Calcutta (now Kolkata) in 1959 to embrace the rigours and routine of domesticity and raising children

How Clyde D’Mello captures the concept of time through his art

How Clyde D’Mello captures the concept of time through his art > Greek gods. Old Testament prophets. Fire and Brimstone. Time and Space. There is a recurrence of these topics in the works of visual artist Clyde D’Mello and with good reason. Most people remember that defining moment in their lives with clarity. So does visual artist Clyde D’Mello. “As a child I would frequent a bookstore near the church every week. There I picked up a book on classical art — it was the catalogue of the Prado Museum in Spain. That was my introduction to the fine arts,” says Clyde, adding that he was around 12 years old then.
