An exhibition of paintings by nine contemporary artists will be showcased at Cymroza Art Gallery, Breach Candy, between August 10 and August 25.
Titled Creative Anomalies, the show is being held in association with Artequest, an organisation that helps promote new as well as established talent.
Close to 35 works by nine artists - Satish Gujral, Amit Bhar, Neena Singh, Asit Kumar Patnaik, Ashok Bhowmick, Ramesh Gorjala, Suhas Roy, Niranjan Jonnalagadda and Thota Vaikuntam - were selected on the basis of technique and quality of the paintings. "While there is no common thread connecting the paintings on display, all the artists are eminent figures in the art world and were selected on the basis of their work," said Sarala N, Director, Artequest.
While Amit Bhar's paintings depict the rustic beauty of villages in rural Bengal with a focus on the daily life of the villages' inhabitants, Neena Singh's abstract works draw from subjects such as youth and beauty, and focus on the various colours used in the paintings. Satish Gujral, a pioneer of Contemporary Indian Art - limits his art not to subjects or themes, but argues that art is something that must move the viewer. In his six decade-long career, he has created sculptures, paintings and murals. Asit Kumar Patnaik, argues that the attraction between the opposite sex is a very natural occurrence and attempts to show this in his work, using the eyes to express different emotions. "Nearly all the works were created especially for this show over two to three months," added Sarala N.
