Well-known senior artists, Sudath Abeysekara and Achala Gunawardana’s latest visual art exhibition "Form and Deform- Reality- පේන හැටි" is programmed to be held on 11th 12th 13th of May 2014 at Lionel Wendt gallery- Colombo 7.
Renowned artist Sudath Abeysekara, held his previous installation exhibitions Media B.B.Q and Media Stress at Lionel Wendt Galley and Art Way Gallery. This exhibition is also an extension of the previous exhibitions. There he set-off, how populace were used politically at the present time. People know the actual occurrence but they used to pretend as they do not know for their own benefit. Media is the abettor of the community that assists them to transmit their feint. This is what Sudath Abeysekara exemplifies through his exhibition.
Achala Gunawardana who used to dominate her canvas by colours, illustrate the natural beauty of Sri Lanka in a different manner. At glance, spectator sees direct forms and shapes on her canvas, but the scenic beauty is hidden under those forms.
As the bachelors of University of visual and Performing Arts, they have done many national and international exhibitions since 90’s. Through this exhibition, Sudath and Achala are trying to emphasise the malformation of our society that privileged enough to be natives of such a beautiful land but ill-fated to be puppets of the current politics.
The exhibition opening will be held on 10th May 2014 at Lionel Wendt Gallery premises on 6.00 pm and they invite you to rethink about the reality.
