Flaneur Gallery is pleased to announce the debut solo exhibition of Sri Lankan artist Sarani Gunawickrama, titled The Illumination Of Infinite Minds. The exhibition presents the artist’s first series of abstract drawings developed throughout 2013, and will be on view from 7 to 24 May 2015. The artist, based in Singapore, would be present at the opening reception on 7 May 2015 at 7pm. The exhibition is curated by Jeremy Sharma.
This series of pencil on paper drawings explore the artist’s research interest in abstraction, the human mind and Buddhism. The mind is described in Buddhism as an impermanent state that is constantly, in every moment, been created, destroyed, and again created in a cycle. These levitating collisions of geometric spaces and organic forms attempt to capture a fragment of the illumination of these infinite minds existing within that particular time of creation. This is reflected not only in the manifestations, but also from the vast presence of an absence to the unseen infinite pencil strokes. Each of these drawings is a raw state of being.
Born in 1990, Sarani Gunawickrama holds a BA Fine Arts (Hons) awarded by Goldsmiths College, London. She also holds an Edexcel BTEC HND (UK) in Fashion Design, and was a fashion designer in Sri Lanka managing her own brand for several years. Upon showcasing her designs in fashion weeks, her works have been featured in Vogue, Elle amongst various other international presses.
