Artist Sudip Roy’s Art Exhibition at Kalakriti Art Gallery

What happens when an artist like Sudip Roy who has created realist, figurative works as well as monumental Charulatas turns to the matrix of moody momentuousness? On 6th November Hyderabad's premier gallery Kalakriti will present Sudip Roy's Odyssey-an abstract odyssey that has gripped art lovers in Kolkata, Delhi, Mumbai as well as the India Art Fair this year.

Colour bathes, breathes and bleeds as you espie the grooves and limpid passages of the intentions of the mind in a celebratory set of works that read like fragments from time.
Capacious sweeps of colour, drawing simultaneously on inert perceptions with a light hand and the dulcet design of colour's vapid vacuous tonality these works are as if Sudip adds a footnote to the history of abandoning, realism and merging into the magic of Abstract Expressionism.

When told that his works are evocative musical passages as if born out of a raga Sudip states: " I listen to classical music all the time. I believe that the most important element in music is the sur-the note-the shruthi. And once you listen to it, you are immersed in its nuances and its different realms."

When you think of the different parts of the composition the lyrical flow seems seamless- it has no form its expanse is like a colour field a memory that is flowing just like a river.

"When I began abstraction this was the surge that I witnessed. It was about the moods and momentum that was created within the web of alaaps and antaras. And it became a journey that filled me with the silence of the depths of melody and rhythm," he affirms.

The show has been curated by art critic Uma Nair who has followed his evolution for 25 years. Her notes suggests that these canvasses are colour in its tonal sweep, expansive colour fields that make curiously inviting tonal graphs of sites frequenting a certain perception that continues to coax abstraction from almost mesmeric moody moments that have been stirred from inner recesses of the magical manipulations of time's tenets.

"The swish and sweep of the pliant brush makes you think of land and sea, where landscapes mirror not just the brink of an epiphany but the rites of time in life's lived syncopations," says curator and critic Uma Nair.

This is a journey of sorts for Sudip Roy in which he explores inventing colour in its smoky embers and its deepened depths wanting to stoke the fire and the surreal crevices within his own struggles and journeys as an artist. It will be intriguing to see how art lovers in Dubai will respond to a former Gold Medalist from College of Art Calcutta who is an ace at water colours too.
