PREVIEW FOR 'IDIOSYNCRASIES' - AN EXHIBITION OF ART WORKS BY D L N REDDY
Art begets idiosyncrasies. Paul Gaugin always began his day with a self-portrait.
De Goya had to have the smell of rotten apples emanating while he was working.
Da Vinci had to write something with his left hand while painting with his right.
Well, nothing to worry about, as long as art is getting richer. And one artist
back home has decided to make a dig at his profession.
As a part of its first anniversary celebrations, Lakshana Art Gallery is organizing an exhibition of art works by D L N Reddy called "Idiosyncrasies". Shama Zaidi, Artistic Advisor for ETC Urdu, will inaugurate this exhibition. The exhibition will be for a 13-day period.
D L N Reddy is among the few artists of Andhra Pradesh who have earned a place of prominence through their contribution towards contemporary Indian Art. Hailing from Nalgonda in Telangana, Reddy studied art at Hyderabad and Baroda, following which he embarked on his artistic career in the early 70s.
As a printmaker, painter and sculptor, his visual language explicates a very intimate dialogue between him, his immediate surroundings and his self. All these are put forth in the art works through an idiosyncratic idiom (distinctive expression).
