The Multifaceted Meanings and Methodologies of Kanchana Gupta

  • by The Cartellino Team

The title 458.32 Square Meters could invite different interpretations but the exhibition by Kanchana Gupta allows for the artist to explore urban environments while remaining true to her signature visual language. The artist's minimalist aesthetic shows an intricately crafted series of works that examine materiality and transformation of oil paint. With a fascination for the rapidly changing urban landscapes, Gupta creates a meta-narrative of urbanization, migration, and globalization.
