Absolute colours

first_imgIn India, the fraternity of  artists have always complained about the lack of platforms to display their work. Be it painters or photographers, each one feels the need for ‘space’. And rightly so. Let’s say the complaints got heard. Gurgaon sees a new art gallery. The Peacock Art Gallery has put up its very first show – Supreme Absolute. Absolute as you know, means that all other truths are relative to it, or depend on it. And Supreme is like the ‘supreme being’. So this show is basically an ode from artists  to the supreme absolute.  Artists, Rajesh K. Baderia, Priyendra Shukla, Pradosh Swain and Anup Kumar Chand, have put together this show. Though all the paintings look different, they are all woven in a single thread because of the conceptual approach adopted by the artists.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Just to know what you may find there, let me give you a sneak peek into the work of the artists! Rajesh Baderia speaks for himself, ‘ I just paint. It is an undying passion which will remain with me forever. Energy is an important element of my paintings, that is in the form of light. Light in the form of Aura or Him!’ With ‘him’ he means the ‘supreme absolute’. The play of colours in his paintings are sure to evoke emotions. Priyendra Shukla’s paintings mostly depict varied forms of cows and calfs with bold and fine lines which further gets enhanced with his bold and large patch of colour. ‘I long to internalise the moment and bring it to the realm of tangible, where I can go back and live it again. So all I do is to try and create a visual replica of my perception on the rectangular arena of a canvas,’ says he. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixGetting you face-to-face with the reality is the artist Pradosh Swain. His paintings depict the pace of life that is fast disappearing. For instance, he uses the symbol of the cement spatula to emphasise the dominance and development of the metro cities. The displaced crow far away from nature, the uprooted trees, the old lady catching a last glimpse of the Banyan tree, all urgently signify the need to go back to nature. Anup Kumar Chand’s paintings are full of fantasy with a very strong command over the theme and the composition with a prominence of dog in a varied way! You need to see it to get it.It couldn’t get better for art lovers in the Capital. Mark the dates and head over. When: 18 May – 9 June, 2014 from 11 am to 8 pmWhere: Peacock Art Gallery, SG-50, Galleria Market, Gurgaonlast_img read more
