Often I come across the syllogism – “Art for art’s sake; or Design for design’ sake” and wonder what it really means? The last week, however, has enlightened me a wee bit in this direction – what with our Ganesha feature that celebrates the religious icon as a pure manifestation of artistry; or the latest fashion statement to make the rounds – digital iconography. Theresa and Roger’s ‘Retarded Velvet’ label is a narrative in pop art meets kitsch’ and if I may comment rather bluntly – quite aptly voices the current youth mindset.
At the other extreme, faith has a stronghold in design like that of the Banduk Smith studio, where ingenuity overrules and showcases the staying power of good design.
There is more; and there is more...
