Subodh is interested in what inevitably disappears in the process of change. The extensive use of stainless steel utensils in his artwork codifies the complex socio-economic, as well as, cultural situation of present day India.
Subodh Gupta’s work exemplifies the iconography of a banal, precarious, edgy and bustling everyday lives humongous in magnitude, blown out of proportions, peeled out of their ordinary skins by their sheer mass and volume.
Subodh completed his BFA from the College of Art in Patna. His recent solo exhibitions include the Sara Hildén Art Museum, Tampere, Finland 2011 and Hauser & Wirth, A glass of water, New York NY 2011. He has also participated in several group shows including Grant Pirrie Gallery Sydney, Under Consideration at Japan Foundation and Tokyo Art Gallery, Japan, and in Beijing, South Korea, Australia, Manchester.
