Description

Dimpy Menon (Indian b. 1963), Untitled (figure in a frame), sculpture, bronze, 46 x 22 cm

Provenance: Property from the Surya Collection, Mrs. Ute Rettberg; Acquired directly from the artist in Bangalore, circa 2006

 

 

 

Dimpy Menon was the recipient of the Lorenzo il Magnifico Bronze award at the Florence Biennale in October 2015, becoming the first Indian sculptor to win this award. The New York magazine Architectural Digest has called Dimpy Menon one of the “biggest contemporary artists in India”. 

Dimpy Menon graduated in 1986 from the College of Fine Art and Crafts, Chennai, with a major in Sculpting, and lives and works in Bangalore. Her work has been exhibited around the world and has been commissioned by major institutions such as the World Trade Center, Pune. 

Taken singly and in groups, the bronzes tell stories. The figures capture the moment just before something happens, or the moment just after the action. At either end of motion is stillness. The bronzes celebrate life, capturing the human form in an array of movements: complex, acrobatic and graceful. They are a tribute to the fleeting moments that resonate in our minds like a line of poetry or a bar of music. The rough granite bases play off against the metal, enhancing the richness of the bronzes Dimpy Menon, the memorialiser of the moment is equally the memorialiser of movement. Both are eternalized in the same work, and it is this balance, ultimately, that makes her bronzes unique. “The more you do,” says Dimpy, “The more there is to do.”
