Shaurya Kumar: from the series "if in a sacred land a traveler..."
Artist: Shaurya Kumar
Details: Gold leaf, Varnish and reductive tools on Rives BFK
Size: 19″ x 14″
About: Inspired by recent travels and memories of places and objects that he has encountered, each gold leaf symbolizes a mark as if left by a pilgrim on a religious site as an act of reverence or devotion. While each mark and drawing is different in the way of handling, all works share the equal investment and intensity; and the beauty comes from the profound act of engagement, the kind of empathy towards the object that is looked at, met and respected, and not seen through.
