Nothing Else But Love: Sculptures and Paintings by P. Gnana in Singapore
12 - 23 September 2012


A monumental exhibition, as it is after three years that P. Gnana's art collection is being showcased in the Lion City, after exhibiting his paintings and sculptures in New Delhi, Kuala Lumpur, Bangalore, Mumbai and New York.


Nothing Else But Love is a significant exhibition that features a fresh collection of paintings and sculptures by P. Gnana, under a visual language of whimsically-stylized imagery of human figures within the universal concept of nothing else but love. And this love that he portrays, connects to as many perspectives as one can imagine. Some figures are intentionally androgynous, whereby gender is no hindrance to the viewer's response to the alluring feel of unconditional love. And some figures are absolutely defined, perhaps in the case of the timeless concept of the Mother and Child. Nevertheless, the concept remains poignant and invincible. It is intriguing to note that Gnana's recent series of paintings and sculptures stand proof to the fact that this fascination towards love and human figures has been rekindled with an even larger exotic yet emotive impact, within a colour palette that is unprecedented in his career, thanks to the profound combination of oil and fabric collage on canvas.


 

Brief Profile of P. Gnana

Born in Neyveli (South India) in 1970, P. Gnana is indeed a distinguished, leading painter and sculptor in Singapore. It is a fact that exemplary paintings by Gnana are in the collections of the current President of the Republic of Singapore, of the Singapore Art Museum of the National Heritage Board in Singapore, and of Smt. Harsimrat Kaur Badal (current Member of Parliament for Bathinda, Punjab). Other collectors of his artworks include the Coutts Bank, Ascenda's International Tech Park in Chennai (commission of 14 large-scaled abstract paintings in 2005), and several private corporations and individual art collectors in Southeast Asia, South Asia and Europe. In 2002, Gnana was a recipient of the LASALLE Scholarship of the LASALLE College of the Arts (Singapore), from where he received his formal training in the art of painting. He is also an active member of the Sculpture Society (Singapore). Gnana’s eighth solo art exhibition, The Eternal Cow: Sculptures and Paintings by P. Gnana, was presented at the Singapore Philatelic Museum in 2009. Gnana’s fascination towards the technique of collage in his paintings began in the first few years of his career. Today, collage is back in his art, but this time, on both sculpture and painting. With great confidence and an abundance of practical and aesthetic ideas, Gnana transforms the meaning and purpose of mundane, everyday objects into awe-inspiring poignant expressions of urban relevance. His solo exhibition of sculptural installations and paintings, entitled Parallel Play: A Travelling Collection of Art by P. Gnana, was presented in Kuala Lumpur in 2010 and in New Delhi in 2011. Gnana made his debut in New York in 2011.

Gnana's sculptures are more than mere carvings and paperweights. True to their name, these sculputres are some of the most vibrant and colorful in existence. The materials that Gnana uses for his large and magnificent cow sculptures are termed as found materials (including car parts, two-wheeler parts, scrap material) and he combines them with solid bronze and antique vessels. Many hours of search for the appropriate found materials have been an integral aspect of Gnana's art-making scenario.
