New Delhi, August 19, 2017: The journey of an artist is encapsulated in her ongoing timeline narrating where she began from to now, when she engages with her subject before putting life in them.

Artist Kanchan Chander has created expressions through her drawings, paintings and installations with a unique charisma to engage her audience.

Her show titled, “Whispering Toros” is on for view here at Visual Arts Gallery, India Habitat Center, till August 23.

Kiran. K. Mohan has curated the exhibition.

“As a curator, it is my very first interaction with Kanchan and her works in her studio bring across a great sense of bonding,” Mohan said.

“I have followed her as an artist for years and have silently related to her works which are thought-provoking, dealing with the issues prevalent in our society,” she said.

Highlights of the show include a paper collage on plastic mannequin torsos which are bold, funky and vibrant.

Her works are full of forms of the torso using different mediums. “They resonate her style and all the tedious intricate detailing surrenders to perfection. Kanchan has been working on female toros for past two decades,” the organisers said.

Earlier, her works were based on torsos that were minimal, monumental and sparse with decorative and embellished motifs. Now she started incorporates painted flowers, sequins and Swarovskis on them.

They works are full of textured lines, built by layers upon layers of paint. Yet at the same time her mixed media torsos are embellished with sequins, Swarovskis, stickers, laces, wrapping paper and any found objects, which she is constantly on the lookout for at home, on streets and local bazaars.

“As she works, her thought process is more human and intuitive — ensuring that all art elements like composition, tonality, lines, colour, mediums and placements are summarised with precision,” the organisers said. (IANS)
