Kalahita Art Foundation is organising Surface Chants, an exhibition of recent works of Rasika Reddy, from 17th to 31st January. Rasika Reddy is a Hyderabad born artist now based in Summit, New Jersey, and is exhibiting 21 paintings based on religious themes.

Rasika's works reflect multiple concerns and awareness of various complexities in the present context of religion and culture. It shows in an obsession with surface/space and formality on one hand, and in a personal exploration of the effects of religion in society on the other. There is an awareness of a general change in relationship with religion in India as well as in other parts of the world. She says that accelerated globalization doesn't always mean cultural amalgamation. To the contrary, it is constantly seen how cultures/religions try to assert themselves.

In the past, in her works, there has been the use of several layers of religious motifs, with each layer obliterating the next. Today, in addition to the religious motifs, she has added architectural elements. The image of Buddha comes through very strongly in most of her paintings. Viewers generally recognize and associate the Buddha with a particular geographic area, namely Asia. But for her, the Buddha is more of a cultural than a geographical image. She draws references of images of Buddha from different regions for their aesthetic quality.

Rasika has done her B Tech in Fine Arts from Brooklands College, Weybridge, Surrey, and B A Hons in Fine Art from West Surrey University for Art & Design, Farnham, Surrey. She has been exhibiting her works since 1994, at various art galleries in the US, UK and Hyderabad.
