Elisabetta Marabotto of Saffronart shares a note on LN Tallur current exhibition at the SCAD Museum of Art, Georgia
London: The SCAD Museum of Art is currently hosting the first solo US museum exhibition of the Indian artist LN Tallur.
Tallur’s art is an amalgamation of influences from rural India, where he grew up, to foreign lands, which he recently visited. This is reflected in his unique style and artistic vocabulary.
The New York Times described the artist’s work “each of his pieces is like a miniature curiosity cabinet, hand-assembled down to the smallest detail and packed with charmed and puzzling surprises.”
“Balancing Act” is a comprehensive exhibition of past and recent sculptures, installations and interactive works by the artist. These were created using different media such as bronze, terracotta, wood, bronze, silver and concrete.
The leading theme of the exhibition are the dichotomies between the tangible and ethereal, the abstract and the figurative and the conceptual and the decorative.
The exhibition is on until March 23 and you can find more information here.
