Artwork of the month: Subodh Gupta

16March 2011

At the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, on the second floor, there is a new “Modern” art gallery.  It is a great exhibit, and a fantastic set of works.  This one is my favorite.  The medium is bronze, made to look like gold and spray painted cardboard.  The context of the work is a philosophy that I can connect with, and after looking over Gupta’s portfolio I can see where his ideas are coming from.
Subodh Gupta
Indian, born 1964
“Dubai to Calcutta #9”
2006, bronze with gold patina and aluminum, in parts.

This work is quite a tease…
…I will have to create something very cool now.
