|Sculpture of Devi Prasad Roy Chowdhury, its exhibite at National Gallery of Modern Art , Delhi.|
NGM this is a short name of our national gallery of modern art Delhi or Mumbai. I were first time visited our NGM of Delhi . Before that visit I have read some information about our national gallery of Modern art by my art study books in B.F.A. art education at Rajasthan School of art , Jaipur.
In year 2000, I were went to Delhi with my art group Manthan a Contemporary Artists group of Rasjasthan . Today our group artists are busy in his or her art promotion by solo art exercise so group activity is stop . but that time we and our art group activity was on for joint art progress .that was nice time for me or for our MANTHAN.
|I were noticed motion or expression of Sculpture of D.P. Roy Chowdhury|
We have exhibited our first art show in Art Gallery of lalit Kala Academy that is in building of Ravindra bhawan New Delhi. We went NGM for display our Art exhibition poster or we were invited to Director of NGM for our Art Exhibition visit . in that case I were visited to NGM first time in my art life. I was surprised to that building structure and that’s art decoration . NGM is a real contemporary art museum of our nation . so that was a live study matter for me and I did started art study in that short time of our art invitation submitting work , I did pulled some time for live art study about national gallery of Modern Art . I got a pass ticket for visit , in side photography was not permitted without camera fee .and camera fee was high for me so I did only visited NGM to inside without camera , but I did visited live art work images of Sir Ravindra Natha Thankur, Jamini roy, Amrta Sher gill , Avnindranath thakur , Gagendra Nath Thakur and some more senior contemporary artist works that was true art study of myself with live art images . I saw all artist work was fixed in that NGM building Room in form of art museum . really that was great for me , I saw working style by seniors live art work .
|All Labour is busy in putting presser on hard rock for puss ,its great observation|
or thats presentation in form of Sculpture by D.P. Roy Chowdhury.
That works gave me simple way for my art creation or art journey . there to I did knew what is the real definition of painting or visual art. That art visit was changed my vision and that art work impression was gave me richness of creativity with sound of Indian art philosophy.
When I came out to NGM after visit the great masters work of our Indian Contemporary Art , I saw a big size sculpture in garden of NGM. That Sculpture was in black color ciment casted work . I can’t forget that art work first impression , I were pulling by that art sculpture , I could not stop to myself , my friends told me we are getting late yogendra. So lets go for next step of our Art Exhibition.
But I were not listened to them , I were picked my camera and started shooting of that art work , first I shoot to tag of that art work and I read that sculpture was creation of Great Sculptor Devi Prasad Roy Chowdhury and that’s sculpture title was Triumph of Labour .
|Sculpture of Devid, Artist Michelangelo|
was sculpt it in marble Stone in Rome.
I were started photography of that art Sculpture and in same time I were reading the condition of Mind of artist D.P. Roy Chowdhury . that sculpture is very critical about system and social condition . that work is showing all story of fight of freedom of INDIA. That art work not only a critical or subjective art work that is a very study level art work of D.P. Roy Chowdhury. He was created real body language of labour . he did expressed body presser and motion plus face expression with INDIAN labour figure . I have been read About study of D.P. Roy Chowdhury, he is on same level of Western Art Sculptor Michelangelo . but when I see live work of D.P. Roy Chowdhury then I were felt his work exercise and study is very close to Michelangelo .
I were learned to that Sculpture work about observation and that’s perfection in art form . I did committed to Myself that day for hard exercise or deep study about all kind of Object , that sculpture was teaching to me about Art patience or dedication , I learned to that art work of D. P. Roy Chowdhury how to say your inner mater with other medium or in form of art creation . that day D.P. Roy Chowdhury was not in front of myself but his art work was teaching me itself . that sculpture was D.P. Roy Chowdhury for me , because that art sculpture was his self creation with his self Critical idea on real Struggle about freedom Fight .
|perfect Study on body of labour body by D.P. Roy Chowdhury.|
A art Work how to teach to learner , I did noticed it on that day and I were lived that art education just like MAHABHARTA character IKLAVU..
There I were shoot 12 pictures of that art work of D.P.Roy Chowdhury and in that 12 view I were shared my 30 minute and that 30 minutes were changed my art working level . its example I were created a installation with sculpture work , I did created a sculpture in 2003-4 in my master education by myself with deep art Study on object. After that I were created some more work in sculpture form or in painting but that work was came out by me after hard study on concept or on object. so I can say I did got changed with richness of art expression by my first visit of National gallery of Modern art Delhi .
