Sundaram Tagore Gallery is presenting a show entitled Light Metal, which features artworks by New York-based artist Miya Ando. The show runs from now until the 22nd of March.
Ando was raised among sword smiths and Buddhist priests in a temple in Okayama, Japan before she moved to the United States. The artist’s work are made by a unique technique of painting dyes onto metallic surfaces, the process of transforming the surfaces of materials that results in images that resemble the nature like sky, water or air. Ando’s work reconnects her with her heritage and explores the connection between the natural world and the man-made world.
The Light Metal exhibition showcases a series of large-scale paintings made with colour-infused aluminium and steel that reminds viewers the impermanent nature of all things in life.
