A multifaceted practice

Paresh Maity’s multi-city exhibition is now heading to Bengaluru. Titled Infinite Light, the exhibition at Gallery Sumukha hopes to shed light on the multifaceted practice of the artist by showcasing a range of drawings, paintings and sculptures created over four decades. For the first time, viewers will also get to see a rare selection of ceramic works. “(Maity) is especially adept with watercolours, his medium of choice in the early years of his career, and later became known for his large and vibrant oils on canvas, and more recently for his installation and sculptural creations,” states the gallery note. At Gallery Sumukha, Wilson Garden, Bengaluru, 26 February-25 March, 10.30am-6pm

A play of textures

Artist B. Jaya Lakshmi’s works are a play of textures and patterns. Her practice looks at imagery, which is both abstract as well as marginally figurative. Using beeswax, plant resin and pigment powder on canvas, paper and treated wood, the artist, whose solo show Enchanting Encaustics is on display in Delhi, creates a unique visual language. Her journey into art is interesting—Lakshmi, who is from Andhra Pradesh but was raised in Delhi, used to teach science and mathematics until she realised that her calling lay in art. She started by doing figurative works but moved organically towards abstract forms. At the Visual Arts Gallery, India Habitat Centre, Delhi, till 28 February, 10am-8pm
