ANCIENT DUO (8" X 7") - Welded Copper, Brass & Ename.
Hemalatha - Daughter of Shri.M. Senathipathi, Senior Artist, President of Cholamandal Artist' Village, Chennai. I began my career as his assistant, and my work reflects those antecedents and I moved on to Copper Metal Reliefs, Sculptures, and Paintings. For over Three Decades, I have taken part in many Art Exhibitions and Solo Shows in all over nation and abroad. I had executed many sculptures in many sizes, for corporate galleries, art connoisseurs and also taken part in many Auctions. I desire to bring SCULPTURES into reality an object which expresses our dreams, aspirations and which is a part of ourselves. I merely in my own way continuing this tradition of Frontal Three-dimension Sculptures. I delicately drawn peacocks with enamel on welded copper, and a variety of playful Ganesha sculptures with splashes of riotous colour in enamel. Common themes run across the metal works, from the mythological to abstract renderings of animal and bird forms, evocative human figures as well as masks inspired by Africa tribal Art. I draw my inspiration from concepts found in nature, birds and various elements in Hindu mythology. It is my passion to create sculptures in a contemporary mode. It's my zeal to bring out historical significance in each piece and to contextualize ideas from classical narratives within the framework of my personal experience and understanding. It is for the beholder to judge whether I have indeed created a body of work which is both impressive in its presentation and significant in the message that I seek to convey.
