Paintings capture life in the quake affected hilly belt

Staff Reporter

Jammu: More than a month after the devastating earthquake hit the State, a painter has tried to showcase the life in the hilly belt which has been affected by the natural calamity. Suman Gupta's earlier works have been part of the collection of the United Nations Office at Geneva, Nehru Centre and various art centres within the country and abroad. The painter's latest drawings/paintings collection "Allegories from the Hills" takes the onlooker on a voyage into the `aesthetic arena' of the life in Himalayas, mainly inhabited by multi-ethnic communities.

Resonating with the life, culture and aspirations of the people living in the hills, the paintings captured in detail various unique aspects of their life. For instance the painting titled `Winter Corn' shows corncobs hanging on a wall, which wears the ravages in the form of peeling paint. An old man wrapped in a blanket sits before the wall implying a contrast between the ravages of time on man and material.
