The prehistoric five elements – water, fire, wind, sky and earth, have lofty sacred associations for some, scientific, experimental possibilities for others and are ubiquitous for many. But for an artist, it is to create something visual about the essence of life. These five elements are the source of all life & in humans its fragile, balance is part of our existence and intrinsically linked to the well-being of our planet.
Join us as the reality of these elements is evoked by the artist through images crafted to suggest a form, or a creative play with metaphors and materials to represent or suggest the elements. The collection curated by artist & art historian Suresh Jayaram, will feature limited edition prints by the artists that would include a portfolio of 5 images.
