Seeking the truth through Art…

Defined forms that overlap and emerge from one other, textured surface, busy brushstrokes and art that exuberates fullness are some of defining features of Inderjeet Grover’s paintings which will be on view in a Solo Exhibition at Jehangir Art Gallery, Mumbai from 21st to 27th June, 2022.

Rini Dhumal’s powerful works have always brought out the extraordinary  strength in the ordinary  Indian woman. Her works of art were strongly rooted in Indian culture at the same time, effortlessly embraced the influences of her foreign travels and their influence.

Her studio situated on the first floor of her residence was recreated at NGMA besides the powerful ambience for the works, thanks to the efforts of  Adwaita Charan Garanayak, Director General, NGMA who has also curated the   exhibition.

Deeply motivated by an intense urge from within to create artwork in water colours to reveal the beauty of nature in a realistic style, Dr. M.G. Makandar was very much obsessed by the hues of the simplicity of village life and its cultural vignettes in rural areas of our country.  He was also overwhelmed by the omnipresent beauty of nature and its numerous hues and grandeur in various seasons in a year at different places and regions. His keen observations, command over the medium and techniques used and an eloquent visual language of expressions together resulted into the present series of artwork that is not only picturesque and expressive but also eloquent and visually pleasant. It depicts small mud huts and houses of farmers and other working class in rural environments that produce the landscapic visual effect.  He has displayed simple village life and eternal beauty of nature at Hampi, Pattadakalla, Badami, Bijapur, Goa and many more places in his works.  In addition, he has also highlighted the hills and snowclad mountains in Nepal and other spots.  He also incorporated the eternal beauty and divine serenity of Mother Nature and their omnipresent grandeur in his works at strategic arenas so as to adorn them aesthetically with the desired visual effects and the expected tranquillity.

FASCINATING  DEVOTION

Recent creative and thematic work of a famous contemporary artist Bira Kishor Patra has been displayed in a solo art exhibition at Nehru Centre A.C. art gallery Dr. Annie Besant Road, Worli, Mumbai 400 018 from 26th April, to 2nd May, 2022 between 11 am to 7 pm.

The show is supported by Mr. Manmohan Jaiswal, Director Aakriti Art Foundation

Bira Kishor Patra hails from Orissa, He had his art education upto B.F.A. in Painting from Berhampur University, Orissa and then M.F.A. in Painting from Faculty of Visual Arts, B.H.U. Varansi, U.P.  He was a proud recipient of several awards even during his student period and thereafter also from many prestigious art promotional institutions of national and international reputation.  He actively participated in many solo and group art shows at numerous art galleries all over India and abroad and rendered his yeoman services for propagation of fine arts to masses through talks on radio/TV and other means for presentations/demonstrations etc.  His works are in proud collection of many art collectors of good reputation in India and abroad.  He has often received overwhelming public response and appreciations for his presentations.

The present series of artwork in acrylic colours on canvas illustrates subtle nuances of FASCINATING  DEVOTION  in his unique style of visual expressions.  His unique expressive thematic endeavours reveal the conceptualization on divine path through music of spirituality and rhythm of music.  It is most effectively revealed through his artistic exploration of the beauty and reality of Universal metaphor in human soul, mind and heart.  These divine sentiments are depicted very artistically by Bir Kishor Patra via vivid interactive and expressive emotional experiences which have duly inspired him to vividly portray the spiritual Universe connected and closely related with Divine Music which, in turn, showers its eternal elixir and nectar on the entire mankind. The artistic expressions in various works symbolize the divine journey from outer world to inner subconscious mind which is based on spiritual experience of Divine Gurus, Saints etc. as has been derived from Universal truth of realisation of self.
