Ribbons of connection extended to the self and the other. The stillness of balance. The taut energy of suspension. The pure joy of release. The exultant playfulness of freedom. The lyrical protagonists of sculptor Dimpy Menon’s latest series rejoice, meditate, dance and luxuriate in the lightness of their being.
In togetherness, the figures complete unsaid sentences as they hover above the unknown precariously with threads that won’t snap because they are made of faith. There are no wasted spaces in Dimpy’s world. Her men and women extend
their limbs to embrace what is and isn’t . Sometimes to literally reach out to the stars, or to ride the waves, to just sit in repose surrounded by blossoms, sometimes to strike a pose on an orb, or to swim in tandem towards an unseen shore,
to leap beyond imposed restrictive limits of existence, to just watch in wonder the unfolding of a water lily and to converse with a sheltering tree.
What you take away from these works is the aftertaste of fruition. And the lingering sweetness of the thought that this is an artist whose soul is at home in the universe.
