Have you ever looked at your cups and saucers and admired their designs and patterns? Well, then this is a show you can’t miss. Artist Vinod Daroz, in his third solo show in New Delhi, creates artworks through ceramics. Inspired by the temple towns of South India including the Thousand Lingas in Hampi, Srisailam in Andhra Pradesh and Kanchipuram in Tamil Nadu, Daroz’s bespoke pieces each contain symbolic references to India’s history. As the press note for the show says, the creations ‘reflect the artist’s commitment to a uniquely personalised language that unfolds new dimensions of his engagement with clay’.

5 Questions with the artist, Vinod Daroz

  1. Artistic Motivations “Since an early age, I have been fascinated by our colourful temples and rich Indian culture, which motivate me to create art.”
  2. Inspirations “My dad and brother, because they design and create beautiful gold jewellery – I used to help them in my childhood. My ceramics teacher, Jyostna Bhatt and my uncle, P R Daroz are my major inspirations to select ceramics as my main medium of art.”
  3. On the wall at home “I love art in any form, especially contemporary artworks. In ceramics, it would be Jyostna Bhatt, P R Daroz, Hans Cooper, Colin Pearson, Yô Akiyama…”
  4. Concerns that find a place in your art “Insensitivity is the one thing that concerns me most about the world today, which finds an expression in my art in the form of cultural manifestations.”
  5. If not an artist, you would be… “a jewellery designer.”

The solo show by Vinod Daroz is on display at Threshold Art Gallery, New Delhi (C-221, Sarvodaya Enclave) until March 5, 2016
