An exhibition of wooden sculptures by eminent sculpture artist Narendra Singh was inaugurated at the art gallery here on Friday. The exhibition displays 46 abstract sculptures made from wood by Narendra Singh.

Narendra said he had dedicated his work to all loved ones and friends who he could not give time. “I worked on this series of sculptures, creating 30 sculptures at a stretch, during the lockdown. I spent hours at a stretch in my studio and so I could not devote much time to my family and friends. These sculptures are based on abstract themes, most of them an expression of what most people, including myself, went through in the past year and half of the pandemic,” he said.

The exhibition has been put up under the art gallery’s revival of offline activities post pandemic. Apart from his current works, the exhibition also displays sculptures created by him that have been part of national and international art exhibitions. Arvinder Chamak, general secretary, Indian Academy of Fine Arts, said the exhibition will be on till October 5. “The gallery has been promoting all genres of art, including the contemporary and traditional. We are also promoting sculpture making in a completely different format with both traditional and modern media being used through Narendra Singh’s workshops.”
