      ‘GLASS ARTIST’ SISIR SAHANA exhibits new glass sculptures that use discarded material like Roots, Flowers, Shells, Broken Glass etc to speak of our connect with earth in a solo show Titled

      ‘A DIALOGUE WITH SOIL’ at Gallerie Ganesha, New Delhi, Dec 6 to Jan 8

      New Delhi: Sisir Sahana, renowned internationally as ‘glass artist’ for his uniquely designed artworks is exhibiting his latest solo show titled ‘A Dialogue with Soil’ at Gallerie Ganesha, E-557, Greater Kailash II, New Delhi, from December 6, 2019 to January 8, 2020, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sahana is showing 12 new sculptures that were made in a residency program at Pittsburgh Glass Centre, USA this year.“ It was a great opportunity for me to use the most upgraded technological support,” says the 56-year-old , who teaches as a professor of Ceramics & Glass at the Department of Design in Kala-Bhavan, Visva Bharati University, Santiniketan.

      This show is about frozen time, about our roots, about our connection with nature. Sahana has been working with a similar concept for a long time in both paintings and sculptures. He discovers past through present time. His recent works are based on archival metaphors that are discovered through digging various layers. For creating these layers, he works through various treatments of glass. He does not care for the traditional notion of making glass a sophisticated, polished and transparent material. Incorporating thrown away broken pieces of glass objects by other artists, and other discarded material like roots, seeds, flowers, leaves, shells, animal remains etc, he recreates with recycled material.”

      After completing a BFA in painting from Kala Bhavan, Santiniketan, Sahana went on to pursue an Advanced Diploma course in Stained glass at Central St’ Martins College of Art and Design, London, with a Commonwealth Scholarship. He has also directed feature films ‘Prithvi’ in 2006 in Bengali and Telugu dealing with a life of an artist and ‘Maati-O-Manush’ (The Soil and the People), the latter being screened in prestigious film festivals, and a documentary film on artist ‘Suryaprakash: A journey through Life and Art in 2012’.
