Lankan sculptor meets JU students

Tribune News Service

Jammu, January 10

Manoranjana Herath, a noted sculptor from Sri Lanka, on Thursday gave a portrait demonstration at the Institute of Music and Fine Arts, University of Jammu (JU), along with a slide show of sculpture and paintings.

Exchanging his views with students, Herath said sculpting, like all other art forms, is the branch of visual arts that operates in three dimensions of carving, moulding and modelling.

Herath, presently a senior lecturer in the department of visual and performing arts, Sri Lanka, said sculpting originally used carving and modelling of clay in stone, metal, ceramics, wood and other materials, but since modernism, there has been an almost complete freedom of materials and process. He was accompanied by another sculptor of repute, Punkaj Manav, from New Delhi.

Satnam Kour, institute principal, hosted the programme. In her address, she termed the event a creative as well as an eye-opening experience for students.
