HYDERABAD : The exhibition ‘sands of Time’ by various artists is on at Kalakriti Art Gallery. The curator artist Avijit Dutta, who’s also part of the show shares, “The idea was to gather the concept of time as it deposits in the back of the mind  of the artists and how the same can be reflected through art. That’s how one can see in different opuses the stillness and the movement both juxtaposed and mingled with each other presenting to the viewer a unique concoction of colours, craft and technique.

The exhibition doesn’t feature any paintings, instead is based only on sculptures in different media. For example, the work of Arjun Das in wood showcases fluffy rotis, frying spoons, tongs, grating board and other kitchen equipment pasted on wooden boards. Time seems to have stopped for the artist in these shapes that represent what may have occupied the artist while he was rustling up a dish while standing near the stove as Arjun is also a cook by profession.

Another artwork that catches the eye is Dhananjay  Kumar’s untitled work in terracotta and brass. It appears like a miniature community gathering on  a metal surface while the participants brood over something which is more serious than the larger truth itself. Interestingly, their heads are missing yet the sombre mood is conveyed through the rest of their bodies. Sourav Halder’s stone and brass ‘Compostion II’ is eye-catching for its intricate details.
