Realizing Metaphor, Memory, and Meaning: Ganesh Gohain
by Minhazz Majumdar
Ganesh Gohain’s sculptures and paintings are very personal, very intense introspections on myth, memory, materiality, and metaphysics. Extremely deceptive with their minimal, simplified forms, these works offer complex ideations based on his life experiences and conceptual meditations. They are also deeply rooted in the universal human search for meaning. Gohain explores notions of abstraction, the nature of reality, and the process of art-making. He says that his work “represents a visionary study of the past, the present, and the future of history. It is a study of existence to realize the illusion, the reality, and the abstract, which is a process in search of the truth."...see the entire article in the print version of January/February's Sculpture magazine.
