“At present I am working with assemblages, I enjoy putting excerpts of varied origins together into a single form and composition. The present one is a creative portrait of a woman. The metal piece I used for the head was with me from twenty five years; it fitted into the present work and finally got used,” says the versatile artist, who combines finesse and grace in merging two diverse materials — wood and metal, and straight and curvaceous elements together into an intriguing composition. The creative portrait is a combination of geometrical wooden pieces with inherent straight lines and sharp corners while the metal piece is ornamental and lyrical in its strengths.

DLN Reddy has exhibited his works in many shows in India and abroad. Talking about his participation in the present show, he says, “The presentation of the works in the gallery is immaculate. In muted and dark spaces, the sculptures are exposed in spotlights that create a special ambience and enhance the intensity of experience for the viewers.” Apart from his consistent dedication towards his work, he also taught at Fine Arts College Trivandrum and Central University, Hyderabad as a Professor till 2006.
