HUMAN EVOLUTION AND ART

Earthy Hues,an exhibition by One O Eight Art Projects and Art Magnum, is showcasing sculptures and artworks by Anki Bhutia and G. Reghu that have been inspired by evolution, nature and human existence. While Bhutia ‘s bright, nature-inspired paintings trace the path of a pilgrim on the path to self-discovery, Reghu’s doll-like sculptures, hewn out of indigenous materials and inspired by traditional folk motifs, are a nod to his own pastoral roots.
