“Unfolding the Psyche” A Presentation.

March 28, 2018

Ananya Drishya in association with Venkatappa Art Gallery organizes “Unfolding the Psyche” A Presentation by Shan Re and Romicon Revola Moderated by Dr.Pramila Lochan.

Shan Re known as a contemporary modernist is a dynamic and prolific artist, seen actively involved in many fundraising art shows & auctions. The intensity and frequency of her creative output is enormous. She sees nature and art as inseparably linked. Nowhere did she find as much inspiration, peace, and solace as in using nature as a metaphor to express her emotions.

In spite of all the challenges in her life, Shan remains unaffected and engrossed in her creative pursuit which gave her courage to face the pain, confront the core issues and move forward with a greater understanding. Shan’s works provide the viewer with a revitalizing sense of peace, stability and a refreshing escape into pure color.

She lives and works in Bengaluru. Her works are in prominent public and private collections. They have been exhibited in several group and solo shows both in India and abroad.

Romicon Revola
Romi is trained as a sculptor at the Bruce Chappel Atelier in San Francisco. She has experimented with a variety of media. Her work encompasses monumental public sculpture, installation, painting, and video.

She has appropriated the stainless steel material, often considered either industrial or masculine, to weave narratives engaging with feminine musings. In her recent body of work ‘Cosmic Bloom: Iconography for a Reimagined World Order’ she seeks to explore new archetypes or perhaps even revive forgotten mythologies as a response to the several inter-connected and tangential issues surrounding sustainability, consumption, geology and ecology. She references subtle dichotomies while alluding to the power of empathy, resilience and nurture. This series is a thematic continuation of her two earlier bodies of work: The Golden Bough and Future Fossils.
From 2005 onwards, Romi has installed public sculptures and has also held exhibitions in Bengaluru, Chennai, Kolkata, Kochi, Ahmadabad and Mumbai. Her work is in various private collections in India and abroad. She is involved in several art initiatives and community art programs.

Dr. Pramila Lochan is an art historian engaged in research, documentation and writing since 1992. Her research contribution is in the area of ragamala painting, mural painting, folk, contemporary art and musicology. She has co-coordinated several workshops, exhibitions as well as projects for IGNCA SRC since 2002 that include digitization and catalogue documentation of Ganjifa cards and Survey, documentation and study of Mural Paintings of South India. She has curated and assisted in setting up an exclusive Gallery of Ganjifa cards for Heritage Village, Manipal in 2008-09. Her publication includes books, contributory chapters in edited volumes, research papers, and catalogue essays besides feature articles. Formerly Principal of Roerich Institute she has also taught art history courses at various art colleges of Bengaluru.
