"Empty and Full: An Exhibition of Paintings"
2008-09-09 until 2008-09-20
Aakriti Art Gallery
An Exhibition of Paintings: Empty and Full at AAKRITI ART GALLERY was inaugurated on Tuesday 9th September 2008, with Akhilesh, Amitava Dhar, Manish Pushkale Samindranath Majumdar, Sunil De, Yogendra Tripathi.
The above six artists presented in this show have significantly contributed to the contemporary Indian art, with their innovative use of the pictorial language, and have made a new beginning in terms of visual vocabulary. They are eager to explore their artistic tools, a 'terrain' and firmament which in itself seem to be waiting to reveal certain potent images. The method of exploration used by each artist is very distinct. Aakriti Art Gallery promotes their artists with a Gallery Portfolio at absolutearts.com.
The way the 'findings' are deposited in a particular work, with alacrity, is singular from one to the other. Thus the show offers not just six important artists of a generation; it offers six different sets of listening, perceiving and registering certain momentous happenings. It is not the style per se of the artists, which enchants and mesmerizes us, but their sensitive handling of the works, and forces to fix our gaze time and again on every tiny detail.
Yogendra Tripathi offers visions of parched and moist earth, or a ground filled with an imminent light or some marks seen by a voyager; hinting that much more is to be unearthed. His works are also absorbing in their figurine feel. SamindranathÝs findings suggest some turbulence in the atmospheric realm, or indicate towards a capacious horizon.
Akhilesh seems to follow a sign, step by step, giving us a feel that any single entity has multiple facets, and when daubed in colour becomes even more emotive; Sunil De has his own way of marking-demarking and joining-disjoining some calligraphic signs and signifiers, as an archaeologist does for his study. Amitava Dhar deals with many a part of different entities, which have got merged in to one another, intently. Manish Pushkale in his own chromatic vision gives credence to a search, which traverses through many layers and unearths certain marks and signs of significance.
The Exhibition will be on till 20th September 2008 daily between 12 - 7 pm (Sunday Closed )
