REVIEW FOR EXHIBITION OF PAINTINGS BY RAVI GOSSAIN
Chitramayee - State Gallery of Fine Arts is organising an exhibition of paintings, themed Celebrating Space, by senior artist Ravi Gossain, from 20th to 31st December. Gossain is an alumnus of IIT Kanpur, with 25 years of experience in the corporate world.
This exhibition contains 50 paintings, large and ambitious. Some strategies are familiar, such as his penchant for using certain rounded balloon-like symbols as a potent form. His works reflect the precision of geometry, the power of symbolism and the impact of color. He blends science and art in bright colors. The end product is always a dream-like image with bright and eye-catching, contrasting colors.
Gossain has been painting for 20 years, primarily for himself. It is only recently that the art world has seen his wonderful work. He has exhibited his works at the Lalit Kala Annual Shows, and has had solos at IIT Kanpur, Chitramayee and the Habitat Center, New Delhi. He is also a guest faculty member at IIT Kanpur for the Masters Degree in Design.
