Group Exhibition - Natura
Inspiration for Animesh Roy comes from adventure, travel, meeting people and visiting places. Not confined to a comfortable city studio, the artist soaks in all that he sees in nature and around him. Dipping the paint brush in colours soft and subtle, Animesh swirls landscapes and flowers on linen.
In Ramesh Jhawar's canvases, light plays an important role. The use of watercolours make the artworks look soft, lending it a quality of happiness. Swati Kale's fascination with flowers is evident in all her artworks. According to the artist, flowers spell beauty and through her canvas, she tries to express the hidden meanings and presence of these natural wonders.
To depict the essence of nature, Ganesh Panda uses a palette knife. In his works, every stroke is visible, with knife patches etched so perfectly. The choice of color is vivid, sparkling the whole atmosphere. In Sunil Kale's works, the festivity of rainy season is breath taking. With splashes of watercolours on canvas, Sunil's works are picturesque.
Telling us that life keeps moving, Sangeeta Murthy talks about nature in an all together different level. With shades of reds, oranges and yellows dominating her works, each canvas tells a story. Ranabir Saha takes you to a walk through nature, telling you how charming each element is. Debabrata Hazra dabs warm shades of reds and yellows on canvas, bringing to life beautiful birds. He sometimes like to play with pastels, water colouring his canvas to depict nature. Mopasang Valath's artworks are hazy with the choice of technique and colours, showing a clear picture of the beautiful trees and water bodies around us.
For the month of July, each of these artists have beautifully hand-picked artworks to depict nature on canvas in our online group exhibition — 'Natura'. An extravaganza of colours, the mingling and mixing of shades and tints, the exhibition would be a sheer pleasure to walk through.
