Shridhar Iyer explores pure contemplation on a spiritual level, almost as a window to the unknown energy and force of the universe. Over the last decade, Iyer has been working around the disconnect between nature and civilization, a disconnect which for the artist symbolises our inability to understand the forces of the universe and our place inside it. Tambulam, his new body of works is his offering to nature, as well as healing touch to the bonds which are on the verge of being lost forever.
The show presents a complex body of work, a lot of it is in continuation of the artist’s explorations over last five to six years, but in this body, there are also seeds of the new directions where Iyer’s practice is heading towards. Abstraction, for Iyer is not just a visual language, but a strategy that initiates dialogue compassion and understanding.
‘Tambulam’ is not just a body of works, but a space which the artist offers, pushing us to rethink our relationship with the Anthropocene. of fineness and sensitivity, designed to take us into zones of contemplation. Curated by Rahul Bhattacharya, his exhibition of drawings, paintings and installations is carefully constructed through an interplay of form, colour and media centred around the conceptual metaphors of nature and hope.
