Gallery Veda’s on-going exhibition of art works by a galaxy of artists including the likes of M F Husain, Seema Kohli, Benitha Perciyal, Shipra Bhattacharya, Shuvaprasanna and Parvathi Nayar offers an expansive canvas of brilliance to art lovers
Bringing under one roof the works of several artists--- a combination of legendary and young artists—the exhibits are a fine mix of both existential art forms and monochrome works.
Subdued, bold and reflective pieces of art that are an amalgamation would take any art lover on a delightful journey through contemporary arts, one doesn’t need any compartmentalisation to comprehend them.
Each of the artists whose works have been showcased at this exhibition has their own space in the field of Indian arts. Seema Kohli, known for her oeuvre, presents her Ouroboros, a serpent that reinvents itself at every stage.
Benitha Perciyal a young artist dabbles with the concept of shadows, a skilfully executed poetry that plays with light.
The late M F Husain’s lost continent doesn’t need any explanation and stands yet again as a powerful testimonial to the geniuses of one of the greatest artists to have been produced by India.
Another interesting work on display is Parvathi Nayar’s ode to the celluloid medium. With Hum Dono and Seethamma Kalayana, as part of Cinema Verite series, Nayar fragmentises the poster of the films, a technique that is predominant in most of her works.
Other artists whose works are on display include Bikash Bhattacharya, Jayashree Chakravarthy and Tanuja Rane.
The exhibition is on till March 31
