Chambers: Subodh Gupta

Cheryl thank you for taking us on the tour of Chambers! It was really interesting to see some of the striking works represented there. One of my favorites was the stainless steel sculpture by Subodh Gupta "Other Thing". I liked it a lot because I couldn't figure out what it was comprised of. Ii thought maybe he is trying to represent a porcupine but who knows. A lot of the contemporary art motivations are beyond me but I do give him props for his creative approach of representing traditional steel pots, pans, and utensils in an unusual and striking manner! I went online to find out more about his work and style it seems like he draws a lot of his roots from his hometown which was a rural town and then bringing this vision and experience into the big metropolitan cities of India.
