About Suman Gupta

Suman Gupta paints landscapes, but for him the hills, rivers and the forests are not merely physical spaces to be consumed for their beauty but become sites for ideological interrogation of socio-political concerns in a seamless, non-intrusive fashion. The landscapes are locales where leitmotifs such as hope for peace, utopian dreamscapes, loss of innocence, and millenarianism; as the vertical intrusion of the sublime in the horizontal flux of cyclical time, play out.  His expressive canvases reflect the quality of quietude, a rippled silence that comes from within, a manifestation of the inward journey that seeks to bring in an order of timelessness. For Suman Gupta Nature is the site where all conflicts are resolved and harmony restored.
