art form is greater and more valuable? Painting
or sculpture? This has been the unanswerable and
often debated question since ancient times. As a
form in which the expressions are shown in a dimensionally
right way on a flat surface, painting always got
its credibility. On the other side, sculptures are
known to be the best reflections of lively structures.
In spite of the competition, both art forms are
related to each other in view of their origin -
creativity. In recent times, art connoisseurs are
paying similar interest to both the art forms.
a house of art, Hyderabad is always the happening
city with continuous art exhibitions and displays.
Thanks to Lakshana Art Gallery, which is

the artists put forth their perceptions and the
resulting works emerged as replicas of their sensitivity
and skill. The sculptures were carvings shaped in
to modernistic models. D.L.N. Reddy, Hari Prasad,
Manohar, Rama Krishna, Rohini Reddy, Shyam Sunder,
Sisir Sahana and Srinivas Reddy proved
that sculptures always have their own genuine look.
Carvings of Wood, Glass, Sandstone, Bronze and terrakota
were displayed. "There is a lot of talent
in Andhra Pradesh Sculptors. Especially in this
exhibition that was reflected gently,"
said Ramesh, a student of fine arts, JNTU.
sandstone works of Hari Prasad were of a different
kind. He has delightfully explored his creative
visions of mind in his works - Reclining head, Fisherman
and others. Sisir Sahana's two untitled works, moulded
with glass have earned a place in many hearts. Well
known artist, D.L.N. Reddy's bronze works allured
the visitors immensely. He joined the dated sickles
and knives with such dexterity, giving them a natural
look and displayed them as portrait profiles. "The
Exhibition is good and inspiring. It is like the
world of sculptures with different sizes, expressions
and above all structures, as the title suggests,"
said Narendar, an art lover.
A journey through these 'Structures' was a memorable
experience to one and all.
