Laxma Goud is a painter, printmaker, draughtsman from Hyderabad.
Laxma’s simple images reflect an idyllic reality that is slowly being threatened by urbanisation.
The works recreate the rural landscape as if it is frozen in time. The colour, innocence, simplicity,
flora and fauna are indicative of the bucolic naivety.“Humour, earthiness and vitality emerge as Goud transforms the characters of his works –
man into goat, goat into woman, as man and woman peer lustfully at each other.
Goud also explores man’s connection to his environment. From men, women, goats, huts to vegetation, Apart from Goud’s great narrative ability,
the artist’s remarkable skill and sophistication in handling his medium (pencil or brush) are evident.
A master draughtsman, Goud is a versatile printmaker and painter and has worked in a variety of mediums: etching, gouache, pastel and grass paintings.
Goud is currently in Auroville, at a brief residency at Mandala Pottery.
He is giving us a presentation of his life in art
Do join us for refreshments and an interaction with the artist.
