Carbon based life form 2020

The works presented here investigate the relationship between humans and nature. The environment – flora, fauna, and landscape – is present in many forms. There are images, shapes, and textures that are familiar to eye. Yet, here these familiar forms become unfamiliar because they are presented in surreal contexts. Landscapes become supper dishes, a tiger assumes the role of Atlas, a metropolitan view juxtaposed with an outsize carcass of a bird, a bottled up desert. They offer provocative, often disturbing insights, into the delicate balance of the planet’s ecology and how we have wreaked havoc on it.
Experiencing these works allows for an introspection of the relationship we share with nature. It makes re-visible, all the damage has been made invisible in humanity’s pursuit for progress. It brings into sharp focus our habits and vices, which our cultural and economic systems perpetuate. These images tell stories about how we consume pathologically. Often, this rampant consumption m

Forgive 2020

Forgive me mother for I have sinned.
Human activity has placed a profound stress on the ecosystem of the planet. The fact that we are still alive is a miracle. But this isn’t due to divine providence but due to the extraordinary resilience of certain species to maintain vital ecological processes. They keep on bearing the increasing burden of our excesses as their own numbers shrink to levels of endangerment of extinction. Their backs will eventually give way.
Our window for redemption is short and it is shrinking rapidly by the day. Hope—if any— lies in an immediate acceptance of our responsibility. To embody regret, and make urgent amends.
Help me to repent. Let me live faithfully for you.

Subrata Ghosh born in the year of 1977 at West Bengal. Perused my fine arts bachelor's degree with specialization in modelling and sculpture from Govt. college of Art and Craft (Kolkata/ West Bengal/India) and is living and working at New Delhi. Over the years I have mastered myself in digital painting, sculpture and installation. I have a keen interest in the experiments with human perception and instincts I encourages people to touch and interact with the work, believing that human interaction keeps the work alive and breaks the barrier between viewer and the exhibits. I often paints subjects, my vision is mysterious, like the periodically image of fusion of animal and human body representing human blindness and current situation of the society and their desire.
