A much known artist who, has been interacting with art from past 17 years, under the guidance of Rameshwar Broota, she has been trained to see the urban world with a different perspective.
Urban forms and structures which creates a geometrical conversation influenced her to get emotionally connected with her work. Overlapping urban structures is the basic theme in which she first started working with oils. The first ever painting she made was in 1998.
She worked on figurative for quite long and then she switched to structural format. In the exhibition of 2010 she first displayed her work based on structural ormat. Recently, she has designed and created a big structure of a small pencil and interestoingly it is created from cardboard and paints in just a month. Her other works includes 2×2 canvas tiles. “My work pulsates with tensions created by straight and angular lines and geometric forms in three and two dimension.”
It is not always the artist who chooses his genre but the art which chooses him! to An engineering background full time artist, who has been teaching art from quite long. Rigid format in his art creates the realistic vision which includes the boundless approach. He is least interested in following rules and regulations which helps him to create the vision of freedom. He just splashes colours, scrapes it, removes it or simply applies the color directly from tube or hands. He is comfortable using the brush, cloth , stick and at times simply applying dots over n over again, letting creative forces take over on the 6×6 Canvas. The time period of completion for a painting is usually 5-6 hours every day till 1-2 months. By the process of his paintings, he wants to revisit his childhood of being more natural.
“I want to feel freedom and at the same time I want the viewers to feel freedom as well.”
An artist is the most important part of the painting. Pratibha Singh is a very keen observer of the day to day life. She observes the life and creates a conceptual representation of it. Charcoal, Pencil, Graphite and oil are the mediums through which she expresses herself. She basically shows the transformation of the society.
The idea of humans turning into machines is fascinating. We all know that machines are ruling us but we don’t realize that we are lacking the moral values. She conveyed a very strong message of Woman Empowerment through her paintings. She portrays beauty of softness of human body against hardness of machines. This also creates merging point of hardness and softness, live and still, natural and manmade, human beings and animals.
“Primary aim of the art is to search for joy and beauty”
Vijayalashmi Mohan is a very creative artist, who wants to just stay within the limits of pencil but still create limitless art. She sketches in such a manner that one can start imagining colours of the picture as she creates it with pencils. Her pictures show the regularity in the day to day life.
Animals, human beings, machines, nature working altogether influenced her and she started creating it in the form of art. One can get the idea how regular everything is in this world is which we skip to observe just because we are busy with other things in life just by looking at her work. It creates a journey that are specters of my memories, connecting the past to the present, and building up into moments that will belong to the future.
The ‘Bird’s eye view’ is one of the most attracting creation by her in which she has very beautifully created the view of the landscape through bird’s eye or how a bird sees the world.
“Through my work I try to take others through a visual journey.”
Anju Kaushik is one the most creative artists who has been working for last fifteen years in this field. She works on the concept of creating art with different materials. A realm of illusions is the basic theme of her art. She works on the sculptures and paintings using nails and beads on the wooden boards.
Just like we are stuck in so many things in our daily life and everybody wants to come to from tensions she depicted the blasting effect in her paintings. She altogether discards traditional canvas painting and play with different materials may be metal, plastic or found objects from hardware shop. Her work diffuses the boundary between sculpture and painting. Through different material I express motion or flow of life.
“I use metal to depict the flow which is totally from inside.”
