Drawing inspiration from a series of themes in nature and society, this group showcases the work of 7 artists from around India. Featuring upcoming artists as well as established senior ones, the diversity in artist selection is mirrored by the subjects and styles of the 25 paintings being exhibited.
Amol Pawar enjoys exploring all mediums and likes to experiment in various forms, colour schemes and textures. Following his own rhythm, almost all his paintings are figurative creatives and depicts real life. Nature being the subject of every art form, it is the main element in his paintings. The human figures in the paintings represents himself and shows the eternal love between man and woman.
Siddharth Shingade’s work continues to be characterized by his younger years in Latur, Maharashtra. He makes an effort to broaden his horizon, by introducing new elements, new characters in his repertoire. There is fresh imagery, that emerges out of his passion to portray his people, who themselves are changing. This is characterized by “the opening of the eyes” and the script embellishing his earlier works giving way to delicately shaped lips, trying to express something verbally. Siddharth’s connection to faith continues with Buddha finding a place in his repertoire, as do Shiva and Parvati in some of his stunning works.
Kudalayya Hiremath ranks as one of the top 50 water colour artist in the world. An Abhinav Kala Mahavidyalaya, Pune alumnus, Hiremath has chosen watercolour as his medium of expression. Portraits, landscapes and suggestive abstracts are his forte. He travels a lot to pick his subjects and to draw inspiration for his paintings. His paintings are uncluttered which reflect clarity of thought and composition. He also finds time to guide younger painters in various groups, which also seems to mature him as an artist.
Anjali Pooni belives spirituality is realization rather than a thought process. According to Ramana Maharishi, this realization can be achieved by asking the question “Who am I?” So all there is to the art is an expression of self. For now, her art only asks the questions but the answer is yet to be found. Aswatha is the name that is signed to avoid attachment to the work, because true work is worship and it must be done for God without attachment, without desire for result and without ego.
Mark belives he is both the artist & the critic. His lines walks the path he walks, describes the sights he sees and the sounds and smells he experiences. They stop where he stops. Sometimes these lines take lead and flow in directions that only his sub-conscious mind remembers. Sometimes he leads them, at others, they lead him. When he grew up, he had always thought of art as a product of imagination. He believes the joy should be spread, therefore he shares.
M.D. Parashar is a wildlife photographer and painter and is best known for his paintings of tigers with the medium of lampblack or soot. Raised in a town flanking the Ranthambhore National Park, it has significant influence on his choice of subject and medium. His passion for Ranthambhore and all its inhabitants, quadruped, biped and stationary inspired him to open the Ranthambhore School of Art and Wildlife Conservation Society.
Kirusiya Rani, student of fine arts, Chennai, has participated in several group shows in India and overseas. Her works are amongst many private collectors in India and overseas. Using a variety of mediums such as acrylic & powdery white, pastel & charcoal, she layers up textures and colours. She emphasizes the use of line, leaving some areas vague and abstract and detailing others.
