Overview
More
If in a sacred land a traveler Shaurya Kumar Gold leave prints Exhibition until February, 28th 2018 Shaurya Kumar is an artist of recollection who immerses himself in memoirs and imagery of history, context and time; who works in shadows of memory and pulls up fallen and forgotten objects, even if temporarily. He is an avid collector of memories and an observer of frameworks. Employing diverse sets of tools, media, techniques and processes including print, drawing, sculpture and installation, his studio practice focuses on a phenomenological understanding of an object and space, while revealing a labor-intensive process in art making. Indicating notions of presence and absence, these works play with architectural ruins, transient ephemera, and contextual displacements.

This is an extraordinary find in Varanasi. Run buy a local man and his german wife, the gallery is a gem. The exhibits are of superior quality, the art is (usually) nontraditional (as in not traditionally Indian) and mind expanding yet consummately tasteful. They also...More

What a fabiulous find in Varanasi. We discovered a wonderful photography exhibition. We bought one set and came back the next day for another purchase. The hosts could not have been more hospitable and friendly. Highly recommend a visit.
