John Sloan stated “Art is the response of the living to life. It is therefore the record left behind by civilization.” With New York City as her Muse, cosmopolitan artist Ganga Duleep captures the dynamism and spirit of a pulsating Manhattan. Offering a compelling personal record of the thriving metropolis of “The Big Apple,” Ms. Duleep’s luminous urban city landscapes paint the nexus of New York City’s prismatic high rise sky scrapers with elan and vibrancy. Visually documenting city life, her urban cityscape oeuvre encapsulates not only the iconic landmarks and famous architecture of Manhattan, but is also skillfully rendered to represent important visual cultural touchstones. These optical panoramas are not necessarily illustrated with map-like accuracy, rather the cosmopolite artist succeeds in expressionistically reflecting the essence of New York City.
Glittering lights shine on huge and small building, which collide in a mélange of shadow and geometry, as tiny vehicles bustle along tangled lines of street. By creating twisting threads of light which are intertwined together, they form the magnificent composition known as Manhattan. Broken down into visual elements of chromatic color, texture, and line, the soaring forms are illuminated by a golden glow and assume a spiritual, organic quality as Ganga Duleep’s urban architecture delights all four senses. Tantalizing her viewers’ sense of variegated sight, taste, smell, sound, and feeling, her exaggerated architectural perspectives and vertical formats galvanize the electric quality of her rendition of a majestic Manhattan. Rich in architectural detail and sparse in detail of inhabitants or nature, Ms. Duleep incorporates elements of Expressionism, and Abstract Expressionism, as she translates her wordily version of metropolitan urban reality, the magnetism of space and fragments, intermingled with incandescent color.
Drawing inspiration for her cosmopolitan pastiches of New York City streets, metropolite Ganga Duleep’s towering cityscape dioramas are a testament to her obvious talent. Ganga Duleep’s grid pattern format boasts the dynamics and splendors of the ascending architecture which emblazons the unforgettable New York City skyline. Deft workmanship and a keen sense of light render the slick city streets which blur the buildings and the crowds. High drama and vivid light effects characterize her urban landscapes’ sweeping compositions with skillful manipulation of color and light which provide an augmented presence to each environment. This dramatic sense of heightened reality illustrates sublime tableaux at the intersection of pulsating movement and electricity of New York City.
With spirit and sophistication, the cosmopolitan Ganga Duleep’s panoramas reflect a personal vision sensitive to the urban world, as she emblematizes the unique essence of NYC as the “Big Apple.” Also globally widely acclaimed for her incandescent nature landscape paintings, international citizen of the world, Ganga Duleep was born in India and resides in Connecticut. Internationally exhibited in Europe and Asia featuring important solo and group shows, Ms. Duleep has also extensively exhibited throughout Connecticut and New York. Treasured in both public and private collections throughout the world, Amsterdam Whitney Gallery is delighted to showcase the works of this exciting, global rising star!
