Like emotions, colours are a reflection of life.

So, can there be a better way to translate the lifestyle, order, political ideologies and inspirations on canvas?
The topic succinctly puts forth the idea behind the exhibition of works by three Slovenian artists. Miranda Rumina, Matej Ukmar and Dalaj Eegol.
The art show held at Art Houz in association with the Kerubin Art Centre, Auroville is an association of colours, one that has been used as a metaphor rather than an element. Combining vibrant hues with works in white and black, the art work is as varied as the mediums used.
Slovenia seems to be a place of a range of influences – from Hollywood stars and fashion to the universal form of the Nataraja who is the manifestation of the cosmic order. With its religious significance for the various religions all ancient, it becomes imperative to prod the significance of the form in the European context.
Piecing together the details of mundane life to scenes teeming with details and cultural potpourri, the artists take a fascinating flight with history, culture and lifestyle.
Among the mix of art are sculptures made in various materials. Angel and Stalagmite by Rumina, V & The Kiss of Infinity by Ukmar and Somewhere in the Desert by Eegol are bird’s eye views of the artists’ expansive mind landscape, as much as they describe the prolific art history of the country.
Presenting art in innovative forms like prints on mugs, We Love Colours is a language of fusion art. Encompassing the remotest of topics, however, the show is a summary of the broader topics that continue to inspire artists from a country that is shaped by artists.
We love colours is on at Art Houz, 41 Kasturi Rangan Road, Alwarpet till July 21. Phone: 44 2499 2173
