REVIEW FOR GARDEN OF EDEN - EXHIBITION OF CERAMICS BY VINOD DAROZ
Kalakriti is organizing a solo show of ceramic sculpture by Vinod Daroz from the 17th June to the 10th July. The exhibition will be inaugurated on 17th June at 7pm, and is on from 11am to 7pm everyday.
Garden Of Eden has been carried forward from some of his previous work in the 'Temple' series, which was executed in stoneware, and was a series of 3-dimensional as well as wall-mounted sculpture expressing the way the artist sees God. He was also working on a series called 'An Ode To Buddha - Peace & Harmony For The World'.
The first time Daroz worked on ceramics was on a scholarship in the UK in the studio of Peter Illsley. In Garden Of Eden, the artist tries to open up both the visual and the conceptual possibilities of the medium.
A trained sculptor from the M S University of Baroda, Vinod Daroz opted for a minor elective, Ceramics, at college. And made it a serious pre-occupation when he proceeded to Pondicherry. He was an apprentice at the Golden Bridge Pottery Institute at Pondicherry. He also won a three-month scholarship by the British Council to train under eminent sculptors and painters Sir Charles Wallace and Sandy Brown.
Born to a family of goldsmiths in Hyderabad, this young artist is naturally attracted to metallic glazes and matt surfaces. Apart from ceramics, he has also experimented with other media, including cast metal, gold and silver leaf, mirrors, glass, and now, thread and light.
