The exhibition titled ‘Unconditional love’ is showcasing the work of 13 artists from Studio A simultanoulsy both at The Gallery and at Hutheesing visual art center, Ahmedabad. A majority of artists have done their initial studies at C.N. fine arts and some of them had continued their studies at MS University, Baroda and London university.
One of the facets of the exhibition at ‘The Gallery’ is the exploration of new technique by the artists as a way of expressing themselves. Harshid Patel has experimented with the painting of architectural motifs on gold and silver leaf background. Roma Patel has worked with acrylic – bringing the fluid forms created by acrylic paint on glass onto canvas to get interesting abstract forms. Alpesh Dave experiments with threadwork on human faces – his work with Picasso is especially interesting for the humor it recreates. Bhavin Vaishnav has explored the same form of a boy figure in different media from carved wood to sketches.
The juxtaposition of contrasting images often in relation to the human body are seen in many artworks : among them Kumar’s work ‘peace of mind’ in which the juxtaposition of human face with rockets are seen. The same approach is further seen in sculpture in Chowhan’s juxtaposition of nails on human lips. By juxtaposing the child’s image with objects related to his work Rakesh Patel has tried to bring in the narrative of working children into his artwork.
The art work collection of Sonal Ambani including the works of senior artists such as Nabibaksh Mansuri and Mahendrabhai Kadia as well as Sonal Ambani’s owm work on ‘World peace’ is displayed at ‘Huthessing visual art gallery’.
