Sculpture review:Gadadhar Ojha

By inviting to create sculpture for our next proposed show,one of our mainline artist Mr. Gadadhar Ojaha,the only young Indian artist/sculptor living in Paris,France has updated me about his last year projects and all other completed works. Undoubtly sculptors have an important role to offer a sense of wonder and the miraculous to a world that lacks it.Artist Mr Gadadhar Ojha has said about his wonderful experience of working with all other international artists at paris.I have amazed when he showed me the lil video footage and photographs of his last work.Ahh..It is a huge Sculpture,the texcture,patterns and the overall contemporary forms are just superb. Although the decline of the 'romantic' notion of the artist and speculating about a new conception of the relationship between artist and society,but his works are contemporary figurative sculptures created in the expressionist tradition.Somebody argues that art is man's defnese agains insensitivity. Hehe,it’a clearly a comment on the lack of wonder and beauty in much contemporary art. The work never explicitly references walking, yet it invokes the physicality and psychology of this common activity. Small, sequential movements, each like the one before, create an impressive cumulative effect. Just as thousands of steps constitute a long hike.
