a multi-genre exhibition of paintings, large scale installations, sculpture, theatre and soundscape

PANAJI, JANUARY 24, 2023: The Indian Hotels Company (IHCL) brings to Goa ‘Infinite Light’ – India’s largest solo exhibition showcasing a body of work created over the last 40 years by renowned artist Mr. Paresh Maity. After a resounding success at its debut in Delhi, the travelling exhibition recreated its magic in the paradisiacal state of Goa on the evening of 21st January at Aguada Port & Jail Complex in Sinquerim.

IHCL has been home to the country’s largest collection of over four-thousand artworks by celebrated artists and over a hundred priceless masterworks. In keeping with IHCL’s dedication towards supporting local artists, the exhibition space is uniquely ordered to highlight not only the oil and water colour paintings of the famed artist, but also the monumental installations that Mr. Maity is recognised for. The preview evening opened with many of Goa’s prominent and familiar faces, collectors, art connoisseurs and curators. The glittering celebration also witnessed the launch of the book named after the ongoing showcase – Infinite Light at the hands of Mr. Maity along with Chief Guest Mrs. Anju Timblo, Managing Director – Fomento Resorts & Hotels Ltd., Mr. Vincent Ramos, Senior Vice President – Goa and other dignitaries.

Guests were given a special walkthrough by the artist himself. The highlight of the artwork displayed at the exhibition space is the tribute paid by the artist to the spiritual ghats of Benaras, which have had a large impact on many of his artworks over the years. The artist’s ode to Benaras was accentuated by a specially curated fashion show, on the theme of Benaras presented by ace designer, Chhaya Mehrotra a response to the installation ‘Time Pas’ at dusk amidst the breathtaking sunset view of the waterfront.

The artists’ single edition ceramics section, being showcased for the first time at Infinite Light, has been a major crowd puller during the Delhi, Mumbai and almost concluded Kolkata chapters. Maity’s Mystic Abode, sculpted with 8,000 brass bells coated in metallic paint, will also be on display. Infinite Light’s Goa Chapter spans a period of almost 40 days, up to the end of February, 2023.
