Friday, 20 Nov, 8.06 pm

Artspeaks India is all set to host a virtual exhibition of noted Delhi-based painter and sculptor Hemi Bawa rsquo;s latest collection of works, Bodies of Light. Hemi, who was awarded the Padma Shri in 2009 is also widely recognised for her sculpture at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta.

Bodies of Light is testament to the artist rsquo;s skillful exploration of contemporary glass art and she highlights the interaction of light and space through her sculptures. The collection showcases different techniques, such as kiln glass casting which involves handling molten material

In the lsquo;Head Series rsquo;, she uses translucent material that plays with light at different angles to bring out different expressions, while the lsquo;Torso Series rsquo; comprises minimalist forms paired with barbed wires - a representation of the restrictions and boundaries set by the ongoing pandemic.
