Valson Kolleri, Untitled – 1, 2014, pastel on paper, 61.5 X 42 inch

This monsoon, Gallery Espace, in association with LG OLED is pleased to present a two artist show, featuring the artworks of multi – disciplinary artists -ValsanKoormaKolleri and Puneet Kaushik. “The Shape Things Will Take” will run from 22nd August to 20 September 2014, with an opening reception at the gallery from 7:00 pm to 10.30 pm.

Curated by Prima Kurien, the exhibition is a discourse between two artists spanning two different generations, and their unique way of engaging with space and material, unbound by conventional art practice or the preconceived language of academic expression. These artists have forged ahead to carve out their own artistic vocabulary and practice, which allows for emotionality and spontaneity and throbs with raw vitality. Whether these artists sculpt, draw, weave or paint, it is the compulsion of what they want to express that determines the material, medium or scale of their work. The medium becomes them and they become the medium .The transition from the two dimensional to multi-dimensional is effortless and the separation ceases to exist - and the question as to, whether they are sculpting , drawing , weaving or just breathing becomes superfluous. While Valsan is already on his journey and has found his language, Puneet is just beginning to come into his own. (excerpts taken from the curatorial note by Prima Kurien)

The exhibition runs through September 20, 2014.
