The Ceramic Art Pieces
There was only one ceramic piece in the exhibit.
I liked the appearance of several color hues on this sculpture. Netra’s artist statement reads: “As an Artist, I attempt to transform invisible and ordinary matter into dynamic extraordinary material world. My point of entry into sculpting has been through using primarily in Figurative, 3D Design or in Contemporary figure in anatomical and muscular manner, which utterly both context of their contemporary themes and other about the delegation and perennial of beauty.
My sculpted figures convey relationship between an exaggerated and self-indulgent feelings of tenderness, sadness, antagonistic or authentic human emotions and relationships in contemporary figurative manner. Prominent elements in my work involve geometrical proportion landmarks and vanish forms with natural rough form, to create a textural contrast with graceful and harmonious flow of pattern.
In my most recent work, I am interested in finding anatomical contemporary figure with beauty of an Atticism in dynamic gesture, this would introduce me as Artist in the world of artistic expression and explain of my concept.” Check out his other works on his web site.
