Sidhu’s calligraphy continues to take on new forms and space. His latest work references the Gurdwara Sach-Khand (Realm of Truth), located in Hazur Sahib within the state of Maharashtra, India. Inside the temple lies a room (Angitha Sahib) dedicated to Guru Gobind Singh’s final resting place. Swords are continuously laid down in protection and honor of the 10th Guru by visiting Sikhs. Sidhu’s composition develops a similar visual rhythm of sword-like shapes in honor of Rana Sidhu, the artist’s brother, who passed away in February of 2016.
