Event Description : EXHIBITION : 
Simran KS Lamba, a renowned artist presents his solo “Chainsaw Bread” an exhibition of six sculptures and 15 paintings showcasing environmental changes curated by Uma Nair

At a time when the world is dealing with pressing issues like “climate change” and “global warming” due to rampant destruction of natural habitat and the spatial pressures faced by flora and fauna, artist Simran K S Lamba presents his new body of works at an upcoming exhibition, “Chainsaw Bread”, which tends to set a new domain for sculptures while highlighting some of the most vexatious issues that bothers researchers, scientists as well as human beings all across the world. 

The art show which is set to begin at Lalit Kala Akademi from 21st February 2018, showcases a series of six copper and wood sculptures that tends to engage the viewer with artist’s imagination of ‘external elements

​along with​ ​a series of​ ​15 paintings of coal on canvas that mirror​ ​the earth and the co existence of opposites​ ​that trees and the environment go through in​ ​the hands of time and man.

“Art is my nicotine,” affirms Simran Lamba “ My motivation is the wish to unite the innate beauty of multiple textures and treatments…brought out through form, dimensions, perspective and storytelling; taking the shape of the content that I want to express and explore".

An avid reader and thinker his inspirations are “Rabindranath Tagore, Ram Kumar, and Amrita Sher-Gil. “ They provide me a quiet alcove within my consciousness wherein I take a small break from my chosen media of coal tar and discarded industrial hardware, ” he added.

The art works in the show includes an arena of mixed media that incorporates a subtle use of coal tar, metals, copper wires, mirrors and wood. The artist has created tree roots of copper embedded with convex mirrors, carved wooden trunk remnants with protruding copper tendrils metamorphosing into the violence faced by the flora and fauna while depicting ‘scars’ that are reminiscent of destruction done to the victimized trees.

​Artist says, that by using coal tar, wires and different media, he is harnessing the notion that painting absorbs everything around itself. He is also reinventing the idea of mixed media to echo the truth that painting especially links and blends with other media.

“It’s great that a canvas can absorb other media and tar becomes a vital material because it is more than just a fusion agent,” he adds.

Through the use of wood and tar cradled convex mirrors, the artist attempts to showcase the macabre of act of violence faced by the flora and flora which has been initiated by human beings. Viewers who peer into these grotto's are faced with convex mirror pools signifying the markings of erstwhile life - its suppression while juxtaposing the same with questions of ‘action’, ‘identity’ and its consequence.

The Artist's work also explores the subjects of ‘rampant deforestation’ and its impact on our individual psyches by posing questions of ‘anonymity’ and ‘causality’. At the exhibition, the artist will also showcase artworks from his collection, “Nouveau” wherein he treats coal tar in various forms, layering it with diverse media through his vision resulting in a striking confluence of aesthetics and innate natural elemental beauty.

Over the last decade, the artist has expressed himself freely in different mediums using complex media. The same is reflective in this present body of work that is not only significant for the choice of material which he has used but also the subject that he has chosen to bring to the fore.
