Ode to nature

What: Through a congregation of 25 sculptures she expresses the sheer voracity of the human form as seen amidst Nature’s abundance. Dimpy Menon, sculptor, thinker and poet collaborates with Anu Bajaj, Director, Gallery Art Positive to present a solo show which explores movement through the eyes of Nature. Titled “Through the Leaves to the Light”, she presents a series of engaging works that explore the many nuances of nature. The artist has used ethically-sourced and found pieces of wood as part of some compositions. Bronze, wood and stone are in themselves elemental.  The works range in spirit from the calm and quiet Lotus Pond to the celebratory movement of Lightness of Being.

When: December 11 – February 5 (11 am–7 pm)

Where: Gallery Art Positive, Lado Sarai
