Sutra & KamaRia Gallery


Sutra Gallery & KamaRia Gallery offer unique alternative venues for visual arts in Malaysia and both are associated with Sutra Foundation. Over three decades, Sutra has spearheaded painting, drawing and photographic exhibitions alongside its dance productions, and thereby projected an integrated view of the performing and visual arts. With the formation of Sutra Gallery (1996) and KamaRia (2009), a consistent flow of figurative works have emerged through our commissions of artworks and residency programs which span both national and international artists.

Both Sutra Gallery and KamaRia Gallery have projected odissi and bharatanatyam (Indian classical dance), the declining Malay pastimes of makyong, menora and main ‘teri on canvas and paper. The galleries have developed a meaningful relationship with the artists the art pieces the represent, which are immortalised in the living rooms and corporate walls of Malaysia and abroad. The works of established artists such as Syed Thajudeen, Sivarajah Natarajan, AV Ilango & Chelian (Chennai), Dinanath Pathy, Ramahari Jena, Jyoti Ranjan Swain, Kishore Sahoo (Bhubaneswar), Jatin Das (New Delhi), and photographers Eric Peris, 
S Magendran & A Prathap (Chennai), are unique distillations of movement and rasa, achieved through deep and studied observations of dancers and the art of dance.
