Artist Manil Gupta laughs out loud at life in his latest exhibition, LOL. However, for the artist, who strips everyday objects of their usual colour, the popular acronym, LOL, has a completely different connotation. For him, it signifies the laboratory of life.
The paintings and sculptures that form this exhibition create an illusion of depth beyond mere surface. For the artist, attributes such as form, texture and depth are important in the composition — and he creates an an optical play in his treatment of them.
LOL is on at Palette Art Gallery, 14, Golf Links till today.
