Painted in the vivid, red colours of Semul and Palaash, Manoj Kachangal's voice against terrorism and corruption surfaces in a solo show titled Sublime Lands. Kachangal's paintings are bright, textured landscapes and yet they are not just realistic renditions of what he sees around him. A viewer would feel that he has seen these landscapes somewhere ; either in a real journey or in the flights of fancy. These landscapes evoke nostalgia and yet, the more one moves closer towards these enigmatic lands, they seem to transform from the mundane to sublime.
