Compact and sparkling like a diamond, as if there were a fire within, is how the small, almost playing-card sized, landscapes of Bireswar Sen, might be described. In this exhibition, one will see what the artist himself had always aimed at doing: to limn unerringly, lines of beauty with a light that never was on land or sea.

But landscapes the size of playing-cards? Without losing anything of the immensity that is in nature, or the form and sense of earth, man, and the universal? That, in fact, is the marvel. As will be seen, Bireswar Sen’s small works draw one in to a point of perception that then expands to boundless realms.

The exhibit will be on display through April 24.
