Kalakriti Art Gallery will showcase Ganesh Pyne’s works

Kalakriti Art Gallery presents ‘Ganesh Pyne – Twilight World’, from the books of the late Bengali painter Ganesh Pyne. Known for his tempera style of art, which blended poetic surrealism and rich imagery, of characters inspired by folktales he heard from his grandmother as a child, Pyne was famously reticent. His drawings, contrasting darkness and light, were evocative of a certain loneliness, which are also visible in his jottings.

Ganesh Pyne’s Jottings have quotes from books he might have been reading or his own thoughts. Pyne, through the words along with the scratchy drawings, opens the window into his mind. For most people, these drawings may seem inconsequential, but for those interested in art, these are invaluable.” — The start of something beautiful.

Mostly made with pen and ink, with the occasional touch of dry pastel and crayon. These drawings and doodles were Pyne’s lifelong obsession, though never intended for public display. Pyne’s resistance to the idea of exposing these private musings to the public eye. But once he was persuaded, the jottings became increasingly visible in the public domain, often acting as keys that unlocked the mysteries of his art. The pages were mostly graph paper, which reinforces the idea of construction, in case, of a painting.

Kalakriti Art Gallery will showcase the eminent artist Ganesh Pyne exhibition in the City of Hyderabad.
