ian de souza artwork


22 July -


In July Ian de Souza visited the Sutra Foundation in Kl to meet Director/Master Ramli Ibrahim.  His aim was to research Odissi, the exquisite Indian classical dance from Odisha, India,  which has stirred the imagination of Malaysians.  Sutra has not only pioneererd the projection of Odissi in Malaysia, but also that of dance as a compelling component of the range of contemporary performing and visual arts.

The young artists in this picture are observing Ian de Souza as he gives a lecture on finding the essence of a composition using  "line".  Their art works are part of LEGACY RECLAIMED, shown at the Sutra Gallery July/August 2012.
