PalmSunday2015“The Last Supper and the Crucifixion took place during the Passover, when the Eternal Son of the Father mediated a New Testament or Covenant, as the Old Testament or Covenant was mediated through Moses. As Moses ratified the Old Testament with the blood of animals, so Christ now ratified the New Testament with His own Blood. He Who is the true Paschal Lamb.” Fulton J. Sheen, Life of Christ (McGraw-Hill, 1958)

DelhiArt-NYCDelhiArtGallery-BPrabhaDelhiArtGalleryDelhiArtGalleryNYC2015Delhi Art Gallery, with locations in New Delhi and Mumbai, is now open in the famed Fuller Building on 57th Street.

The gallery’s debut exhibition: India Modern features paintings and works on paper by 40 modern Indian artists (born before 1947), including K.H Ara, Krishen Khanna, and B. Prabha.

The modern project and its quest for the “essential” has often led to a revolt against being itself — with egoism and algorithms producing emptiness and death for individuals and society.

B. Prabha (1931-2001), one of two female artists in the show, in a painting done in 1964 (second from top) “evokes a bare desert landscape where one has come upon a small clump of dried trees, the survivors of a grove, the only vestiges of life in a wasted landscape of miles of sand or salty marsh.”

Hopefully contemporary Indian artists will inspire in their countrymen progress rooted in being, rather than the non-being so prevalent in the West.
