BENGALURU:To celebrate womanhood and feminine creativity, “The Arts Village” tucked away on St Mark’s road is hosting a show featuring the works of two strong, independent and self-made artistes from the city, Shan Re and Dimpy  Menon. While one explores the ethereal beauty as well as the stillness of Nature, the other’s graceful bronze figurines are laden with fluid movement and energy.  

Says well-known artiste, Shan Re who is also an art therapist and counsellor, “The present series, Window to Himalayas, is about echoes of silence and whispers of the universe – a silent journey through the corridors of my soul. It is silent because no word, no image is sufficient. Only silence can contain the uncontainable.”
The artist says that she communicates with her viewer with colours. “I choose my colours based on resonance not based on reasoning.  Colour appeals to me in the highest possible way. Colour is the flow of my energy and emotion. Colour is therapy to me...it crawls deeply into the corners of my soul, healing it.”
Shan’s works radiate peace and a positive energy. They are exuberant and are a celebration of life.  Shan re has grown up in the Himalayas and no wonder then that the mountains hold such a special place in her heart and in her art.

Dimpy Menon is another artiste with her own distinct style and her bronze works are fine examples of art you can live with, given the space constraints in urban life. Her human figures are easy to identify with. They convey magical movement, gay abandon, a desire for unfettered freedom of both body and mind.
Dimpy’s home and studio are tucked away in Whitefield where she spends several hours a day painstakingly creating works for her vast clientele.
Lakshmi Vijendra, who owns The Arts Village, has carefully and lovingly restored an old property. She plans to host an array of events and workshops.
The art show is on till the end of March at The Arts Village, India Garage Compound, opposite Bowring Institute, St Mark’s Road.
