India, Baroda, - 2008
Disquieting states of mind synthesize the existential and political in Nityananda Ojha's oeuvre - forces central to his practice. The evocative works mediate their existence through a fascinating materiality evolved through the language of sculpture, although most unconventionally. Deploying objects of fetish like jewellery, diamonds alongside unyielding ones like stone, Ojha approximates the abstract ethos associated with them. Imbuing meaning to his form through use of material with innate qualities, the artist seeks to plumb into depths of human psychological needs and drives, transcribing a universal appeal and language for his works.
'No Other Way', displayed at 'Urban Testimonies', welded in jewellery which to the artist is an aristocratic symbol, lays scourge for desolation and impending pain in the understated reality. These gestural musings also act to reveal psychological compulsions suffocated within the societal bounds, yet evident of the infinite faith the artist has in the transformative possibilities of life. Ojha has been consistently building on the bone for some time now, celebrating the spirit of inevitability and resurrection of emotions as well as life.
