Dipalee Daroz's solo exhibition - The Altered Perspective

Feb 02, 2018

Distinguished artistic creations of beautiful ceramic sculptures will be exhibited by artist Dipalee Daroz in her solo exhibition - "The Altered Perspective". In this exhibition, her sculptures have a panoptic view of incongruous elements are intended through the current body of works exhibited. A transition of context is implied through the use of inherent textures and properties of clay graduating into natural forms and objects, thus creating an optical depth between the natural and the real. Dipalee's sculptures represent her psyche of looking at the things which turn out to be more ambiguous and figurative in its own way. Viewers can easily give shape to her sculptures depending on their understanding and objectives through which they catch a glimpse of the displayed sculptures. Just as the countless clock of nature ticks a different beat at different times affecting the biological and psychological behaviour of the organisms, so does a material transforms into a new entity within the framework of different cyclical time and space.Dipalee has showcased multiple imagery surfaces from varying perspectives through her sculpture. At the crossroads of imagination, it enlarges upon the Indian worldview, which is both- panoramic and pluralistic.
