Man absorbs the factors and senses of his environment in which he lives and breathes while the environment does the same in return. Consequently, both man and his environment are subjected to absolute criticisms.
Yet, I mused upon feelings, beauty, and the pulse of this eternal relationship.

Vajira Gunawardena

REAL WORLD VIRTUALITY
22 August – 11 September 2014

Reality is the symbolic sequence of an ethnological society that is libidinal, thus it is an edited work of fiction. In such a world where fiction is considered as real, I find myself divided between the psyche and the objective world. As I tried to think of a wholesome human existence, I realized that I had lost the essence of my psyche. Each work of art that I have presented is just a mere crack of myself formed upon societal fractures.

An Exhibition Of New Works
12 September – 2 October 2014

Though change happens in time,
Beauty can never be defined.
Through chaos and clutter,
I see life.
A life by these homes,
A life by these streets.
And so I found,
That slums may turn to cityscapes,
But ideal beauty is found in everything.

Vishwajith Yashera

AN EXHIBITION OF NEW WORK
6 November – 6 December 2014

Having known Rubert Soysa since he was an undergraduate at the University of Fine Arts, he is not just a contemporary artist who had excelled in his field but also one who has a thirst for developing new techniques and creative styles.

The passion and the commitment demonstrated with the belief of ‘Art for Art’s sake’ is highly commendable and also could be considered a role model for the youngsters.

Human actions have a direct influence in determining the progress of society.

Due to uncertainties in present society, it is impossible to give definitions for materials. It has a direct influence on personal satisfaction.
