Art Etc. news & views September 2011 Indian Printmaking THEN / Indian Printmaking NOW

Guest Editor : Waswo X. Waswo


This current issue, Part II of the series, begins with Soumik Nandy Majumdar's interview with the venerable artist and printmaker Sanat Kar. Speaking about his history and methodology, the illustrious printmaker also touches upon the issues of art pedagogy. Ravikumar Kashi then offers his own sincere and questioning "Outsider's Perspective" on the state of the pedagogy of printmaking in India's schools today.  This topic is further explored in Lina Vincent Sunish's intriguing essay on T. Sudharkar Reddy, a printmaking educator whose unusual manner of teaching has borne incredible fruit.

 This  issue focuses more on a special trilogy of Indian Printmaking and its ideas. The current issue continues with Anil Kumar's take on digitalization, coupled with a feature on the young artist Maripelly Praveen Goud, for whom technology and digitalization are a central concern. T. Venkanna speaks about his innovative "Gallery as Studio" that occurred recently in Mumbai, and Siddhartha Shah offers a look into the controversial career of Srilamantula Chandramohan. Nanak Ganguly analyses the woodcuts of Rajesh Deb, and Johny ML scrutinizes the still resonating history of the Indian Printmakers Guild. Finally, the exquisitely sensitive works of two printmaking educators, Pinaki Barua and Ajit Seal, are explored in depth by Sritama Halder.

Hope you will find these articles enjoyable and stimulating.
