In a world grappling with many different emotions right now, TAP INDIA continues with its endeavours to support art and artists, encourage synergies among galleries, explore new markets and open doors to conversations around modern and contemporary art. Beginning March 2021, Tap India has added two exciting new concepts, the TAP Studio and TAP Tutorial on IGTV. This month’s episodes are presented by Emami Art. #TAP Studio presents a studio visit with Jogen Chowdhury, mixed media artist, illustrator and lithographer, as he walks us through his studio-residence in Kolkata. The artist creates evocative line drawings with ink on paper, explores the soft curves and angularities of contorted bodies using a combination of ink and pastels, and constructs volume by modulating light and shade, and through cross-hatching, develops an illusion of middle tonalities. #Tap Tutorial features “Attending to Art”: Tips on Restoration and Conservation of art collections with well-known art conservationist Anupam Sah.
