Formed in 1972, the P T Reddy Museum Of Art houses close to some 3,000 sculptures, paintings and graphics by the late P T Reddy. That's enough to worry even the Society To Save The Rocks
Among his sculptures are some very interesting ones - for example, the Vishnu Chakra, which is a wood carving with a sawdust/sand covering giving it the feeling and appearance of a stone sculpture. Another series of paintings that fascinate are the drawings of Ganesha, totaling an astounding 156. There are umpteen variations of the Ganesha, including one in the female form. All these paintings have been arranged in a panel of four, and seem to follow a premeditated pattern of design.
We also have the series of paintings depicting the landing of man on the moon. Then there are the various paintings of landscapes, portraits and still life. And a complete series depicting a mother and child, and the special bond that they share.
Drawing from his brief stay in Germany, Reddy did some paintings in which he attempts to juxtapose the painting style of the West with the East. Again, such paintings are all about interpretation, and no definite understanding of it can be had. The same can be said for the abstract graphics, which are another sphere of his art.
The museum is not open to the general public, and you can see the works only through an appointment.
