AGENT ORANGE / HANUMAN Terry Burrows This series of paintings continues my interest in the fascinating theatre of activities, both religious and secular along the Ghats of the Ganges in Varanasi. The playful title - Agent Orange refers to the omnipresence of Hanuman murtis which are painted with a generic bright orange color. There is a curious mischievousness about these idols due to their often lumpen and cartoon-like appearance - either due to the naivety of their construction or, after many added layers of thick orange paint, the original sculpted details have disappeared. Their eyes though are re-rendered in black & white, seeming to be peering out and watching you from myriad temples and shrines. The often abstracted rendition of Hanuman murtis echos closely my semi-abstract interest in form. My primary painting practice includes multi-layered, minimal-palette paintings, which work between the abstract and the figurative. The morphic shapes that inhabit my canvases, whet

If in a sacred land a traveler… Shaurya Kumar is an artist of recollection who immerses himself in memoirs and imagery of history, context and time; who works in shadows of memory and pulls up fallen and forgotten objects, even if temporarily.

He appropriates not just materials, but also the traditions. His work adds to a new meaning by sometimes destroying the object

Installation and Photographs I inherited my mother’s Swedish genes, not my dad's subcontinent features, his dark brown eyes, his thick black hair. In early 2016, I traveled to India to explore my connection to the subcontinent, a connection from which always felt removed. In India, I found a way to my paternal heritage—a path that took me through pattern, color and nature. As soon as I arrived in India, I was drawn to India's banyan tree; it spoke to my cultural confusion. Between the massive roots and the falling vines, a dark inner space is created that is eerie but also inviting. I began to think about the banyan as a kind of family tree. I felt like I could get lost within the roots, and so I did. When I returned to the United States, I made a number of room-sized installations from wood, paint, clay and canvas. Using this set, my exploration resulted in the photo series, Through the Roots; Out to the Clearing. Every image is an aspect of the large-scale space I crea
