This will be Rubert Soysa’s sixth exhibition at Paradise Road Galleries. Soysa is one of Sri Lanka’s more established artists, best known for his abstract paintings depicting both figurative and abstract form. Born in Sri Lanka, Soysa studied art at the Government College of Fine Arts in 1973.
He held his first solo show at the Vansbro Public Library in Sweden and thereafter continued to exhibit his work in Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Syria, Cuba, Bulgaria, India, South Korea, and throughout Europe.
In this, his latest exhibition, Soysa focuses more on the figurative with portraits and the female nude as his main subject. The artist has introduced new media into his work, incorporating layers and texture using cardboard and other materials. The composition of the canvas in some pieces play with proportion and geometrical shapes.
This exhibition will remain open until 13 December 2013. Paradise Road Galleries is located within The Gallery Café, 2 Alfred House Road, Colombo 3. Open 10am to midnight daily. Tel +94 112582162
