A unique exhibition of the pioneering Indian artist Lance Ribeiro (1933–2010) will be presented in the Georgian premises of Asia House, London. Ribeiro, like Charles Correa, was educated in Bombay in the 1940s and came of age in as the newly independent India was born. Passionate about architecture, his ‘tangled townscapes’ and abstract works reflect an interest in the both traditional Goan buildings and the modernism of le Courbusier. In this special evening opening the artist’s daughter Marsha Ribeiro and curator Katriana Hazell will guide visitors through the exhibition and discuss the artist’s extraordinary range of work. The exhibition comprises of a selection of Ribeiro’s landscapes, still life, portraits and abstract compositions – including oils, oils and polyvinyl acetates and pen and ink drawings. Also on show are some of his watercolours, acrylics and lesser known sculptures by the artist.
