Detail: Rossi & Rossi is delighted to present Dialogue, an exhibition showcasing drawings and paintings by Tibetan diasporic artist Tenzing Rigdol (b. 1982) from 20 July to 21 September. This presentation marks Rigdol’s fourth solo exhibition with Rossi & Rossi.
Dramatic diagonal lines and sharp angles – referencing the gridlines and guidelines used in traditional Buddhist paintings to ensure accurate representations of sacred figures and diagrams – disrupt the forms depicted in the artist’s latest works. However, whilst such marks are never shown in traditional Buddhist art, they form an essential component of Rigdol’s practice. Instead of hiding them, he uses these lines to deconstruct and dismantle the deities and figures he depicts, creating tension between the lines and the coloured forms.
