Unfolding The City

‘Unfolding the City’ is an efflorescence of layers, opening up gracefully like a Pundarikā lotus. These layers are the experiences lived by the artists in this intricately woven city. Each layer is an intimate story, a new perception that redefines the contemporary soul of the city. The exhibition is a collage of diversity that looks at daily rituals of coexistence and curiously questions the traditional knowledge. It celebrates the cultural vibrancy and the folklores that have travelled through the region. It seeks to unravel ethnic roots of the artists, cultivating in them a sense of belonging...

In Search of Vanishing Identities

‘In Search of Vanishing Identities’ pays tribute to the unique essence of every place I encounter in Nepal, a land rich in ethnic diversity and stunning geography. Each location, with its distinct nature and culture, leaves an indelible mark on my soul and fuels my creative journey. Influenced by the vibrant hues of bustling markets and the serene tones of untouched wilderness, the paintings blend traditional techniques with contemporary perspectives to convey the spirit of each place. The work exhibited serves as a reminder of the importance of preserving these identities amid globalization,...

Shifting Perspective

Shifting Perspectives explores abstract fine art photography through frozen patterns,compositions, and illusions found in nature. Through my travels in high altitude terrains ofNepal, the series of images embraces the power of perspective- the subtle dance betweensubject and viewer, light and shadow, clarity and abstraction. The images seek to blur the linebetween representation and abstraction, finding careful interplays of lines, colors andpatterns within natural landscapes. The colorful abstract patterns explore the material nature of water and soil in nature. Thevarying relationships...

Meaning Within Meaning

 Arthabhitra ko Artha: ‘Meaning within Meaning’ presents my subjective interpretations into objective realities that surround me. The sculptures and sculptural installations are my experiments into various mediums in order to reflect on questions about the value of divergent ideas and ways of life.  By incorporating ignored and commonplace objects in my work, I try to imagine the potential for transformation within them.  The works are metaphors for ideas and feelings that too are seen as being without value, and are a reflection into their underlying worth. My works are an amalgam of the hand,...

Heart-Mind Monkey

Time moves forward, bringing change as its constant companion. My background in thangka painting commits me to preserving this ancient art for the future. Yet, I’m also drawn to find ways to blend this heritage with the evolving present. “Heart-Mind Monkey” is this blend, a conversation between tradition and change. Buddhist practice often views the ‘monkey mind’ with caution, seeing it as the source of our restlessness and distraction. I see its other side as well: to me, it’s filled with playfulness, warmth, gentleness and above all, curiosity. These...

Edible Flowers

I have always been fascinated by the usage of tarp sacks (Drochak bureh) in the Tibetan community. Growing up, tarp sacks that carried food aid from the US for Tibetan refugees in Nepal and India were a common sight. They were incorporated in to our daily lives—as material for constructing houses, garbage bags, shower scrubbing, laundry, and dishwashing. It became apart of our lives, and now it has become intrinsic to my art. The colors expressed by the tarp are remarkably unique in the final development of my artwork. In this series Edible Flowers, the paintings trace a delicate balance...

Takpa Gallery is proud to present a collection of 22 recent works by Tsherin Sherpa. The exhibition features works in gold leaf, acrylic and ink from the ongoing ‘Spirit’ series and ‘Protector’ series. The works explore the dynamics within the himalayan diaspora as they juggle personal experience of their culture against presumptions put onto them by the western world. Perceived as a static Shangri la, his work subverts this notion of Himalayan culture through representative ‘Spirit’ characters that merge tradition and modernity. They embody the spirit of...
