‘Unconditional love’ An Art Exhibition

November 16, 2013 § Leave a comment


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’.

Purvaa 2013 – A Group exhibition of Paintings & Sculptures

October 21, 2013 § Leave a comment


The works of 35 artists based in Ahmedabad and Baroda is being exhibited as ‘Purvaa 2013’ from 18th to 20th October 2013 at LP Hutheesing visual art centre in Ahmedabad  as part of a unique tribute to late Purvesh Patel by his friend Aditya Vikram. The 45 artworks exhibited include paintings, etching, lithography, paper cutting, mixed media as well as interactive exhibits and sculptures in various media.

Surrealistic images of human faces juxtaposed with a variety of images including merry go rounds, landscapes, mobiles etc. depicting the various moods and thoughts in human beings were found in the work of many artists. The dominant theme in the artwork including paintings,  graphic art as well as sculpture seemed to be the troubles, constraints and difficulties faced by human beings in the modern world and the meeting space between humans and the man made world. This included the works of Nemaram Jangid’s ‘Control of tension’ , ‘Struggle and risk’ and Purvi Parmar’s ‘Freedom’.

Various experimental artwork using unusual mediums such as backlit acrylic with LED lights as well as the use of chrome plated metal and coins on paintings  seemed to resolutely trying to break away from the constraints of two dimensional medium of painting and graphic art.  Experimental artworks also included the interactive artwork of David titled ‘girl with the gun’ in which the viewer became the participant by pumping air and finding the girl raising a rubber gun at the viewer.

Some of the other interesting work included the artwork ‘Train’ by Sandeep Suneriya which though simple in form was conceptually unusual in depicting two narratives within the 6 frame structure and the abstract work of Arpit Biloria ‘Intersectional void’ which celebrated the abstract beauty and raw juxtaposition of forms, leaving the work open for interpretation by viewers.

Travers Nash’s Artworks at a Glance.

Viewing of Work by Artist : Travers Nash

Concept Note :

Take a look around you – you’re surrounded by technology. Every aspect of our lives, the way we eat, travel, communicate and entertain ourselves are all determined by constantly “advancing” technology. In our modern world of mass production and consumption these technological objects come pre packaged with a stereotyped usage, leaving little room for creative innovation on a personal level.
These latest works have been heavily influenced by my time in India. The colors, sounds and energy of this country have influenced my attempts to create a more meaningful interaction between viewer and technology  ; a creative relationship that moves beyond pure materialistic consumption.

ASHAVALI TO AHEMEDABAD

A journey from the time when the city was a tiny settlement known as Ashavali on the east of the river Sabarmati  led by a Bhil king, then a city thriving and growing under the rule of Karandev and being named Karnavati to being the great sultanate of Ahmed Shah : Ahmedabad. Dynamically transforming itself by the time; today it is the sixth largest and fastest growing city in India.  A unique city that has a strong sense of community living and an uncanny sense of business with its thriving textile industry travelling the industrial era, earned the title Manchester of the east. This sense gave way to many faiths to coexist emerging into a unique social fabric and thus made the place more diverse yet uniting itself with a pulsating fresh, modern vibe yet holds its traditions dear, where one is free to choose the pace at which to live.
With every reign leaving a trace of shadow in its own way on the city, remarkable being the Sultanate of Ahmed Shah by its architecture evident till day are living examples of cultural mélange. The fervor being carried not only in its visual pattern, appeal but the people coming into its lap are touched and adapt well to its offerings later only contributing greatly to itself.
A city that is flourishing since 600 years and has an amazing life pattern. We take you on a quick nostalgic flashback through all that is Ahmedabad. A journey through the city’s trials and triumphs!
