Overview

Iranna G.R. (b.1970) has been an artist for about 10 years. He has won many awards and has held several one-man shows in India. Participation in international exhibitions has raised his profile outside his native country. Iranna studied at a time when there was major upheaval in the economy and class system. The frictions that arose from these changes plays an important role in his work. Ranjit Hoskote has written a meditation on Iranna's life and artistic career. He looks at influences on the artist, particularly of a spiritual nature and demonstrates how events in Iranna's life had an impact on his art. The Dancer on the Horse refers to a self-portrait of that name and seems to Hoskote to provide a neat metaphor for the balancing act between the inner privacy and the outer exhibition of a painting.
