Other than old newspapers, the artist has used shreds of old janmapatris, torn notes, weathered postcards along with resin to make these beautiful sculptures.
Scripted in Time II - an exhibition of Rameshwar Broota's recent works in epoxy resin and photographs printed on Corning Gorilla glass. The exhibition opens on Monday, 28th January, 2019 at 5 pm at Shridharani Gallery, Triveni Kala Sangam and continues till 12th February, 2019.
Rameshwar Broota likes to work on large canvases. “I like the action,” says the 70-year-old artist, swinging an imaginary brush in the air. “When I scrape paint for the details, greater-than-lifesize gets more accuracy... When you magnify, so many things are added and subtracted.” This ‘addition and subtraction’ continues in his photography, too. In this case, his canvas is a 32-inch MacPro screen. Broota takes an image or a set of images at very high resolutions, and then spends night after night working with them on the Photoshop software — altering, superimposing, enhancing — to get the composition he wants. And he prints them at sizes of at least 40”x60” — monumental for photos.
