March 14, 2012 § Leave a comment



  “Kalane Sarname” 
An Art Exhibition showcasing the work of 18 women Artists opened  on 8th march at the 
Ahmedabad ni Gufa On the occasion of  InternationalWomen’s Day and showcased the work of 18 remarkable women who havepursued a career as Artists.  The Exhibition has paintings by 9 Artists and
works in other mediums such as Sculpture, Photography etc by 9 Artists.

Artists :
 Riddhi Shah, Palak Gajravala, Shefali Nayan, Visha Kanuga, Kailash Desai, Roma Patel, Lata Kanuga, Samvedana Vaishya, Kajal Shah, Deviba Wala, Shweta Patel, Jigna Gaudhana, Rachana Badrakhia Nikita Parikh, Niyati Kanuga, Bharvi Trivedi, Aayesha Parikh and Vidhi Parekh. 
The Art in Ahmedabad has over the last five years gradually evolved
and the interest and awareness about the field is steadily on the
ascent. The city has a number of talented eminent and upcoming artists
who are dedicated to their work, and slowly but surely, making a mark.

One of My Sculptures at the exhibition 

with my work – sculptures in copper and stainless steel. There’s a piece on the wall where i’ve used mirrors and S.S 
With the chief guest Shri Jay Narayan Vyas – Health and Tourism minister at the inauguration also in the picture : Siddheshwar Kanuga, Mr Anil Relia, Visha Kanuga of the Smart Art Hub who organised the exhibition  and Rakesh Patel.

 
 Riddhi and me are both from Studio Verve.
 Riddhi is a Sculptor and works in metal and stone. 
Women and Art : when i think of these two words together i think of Frida Kahlo, Camille Claudel…
 I think of so many significant Indian women artists and their contribution to Art. From Anjolie Ela Memon to Bharti Kher women artists definitely are making their presence felt but by and large the no of women in the field is small as compared to men. A show highlighting their work therefore is welcome.
An Article featuring the exhibition – City Bhaskar. 

The promotion for the show was done on quite a large scale with 9 hoardings and various banners across the city. A large no. of people visited the show. 
I am Indeed glad to be a part of this exhibition and thank all those who attended.

The Artist Residency at Studio Verve : Artist Blaise Kohari from France.

March 6, 2012 § Leave a comment


Artist Blaise Kohari arrived in Ahmedabad on the 4th of february
 for a one month Art Residency with Studio Verve.
His work Finds inspiration from Shape, Movement and Colour and Subject. 

It was a pleasure to get to know him and he is quite a dedicated artist. During his tenure we met and visited the homes and studios of local artists and the resulting discussions were always very interesting. We also invited artists to the residency to come see his work.

Visit to an exhibition in the city. 

Paintings by Blaise.

Visitors at the open House and viewing of his work at the end of his stay.
 


Blaise describes his experience and work with the following lines :

There is wonder in the stars and glory in the sun.

There is life in a river and wisdom in a tree.
There is a peace in a flower and freedom in a bird.
There is healing in a song and power in a smile.
There is hope in a colour and grace in a line.
There is beauty in a question and wealth in an answer.
There is time to understand and eternity to celebrate.

“I love India because it is a land of beauty. I get Inspired by the rich colours, touching scenes and the diversity of people. My Purpose is to paint canvases that reflect the pulse of life that I can feel or see around me. If they generate any emotion that warm up the heart of the viewer my goal is reached.
Visual art not only crosses frontiers but also builds bridges between people from different cultures and generations. Pictures can speak to the soul where words sometimes don’t go.” 
 
Arpit Biloria, Blaise Kohari, Travers Nash &  Deviba wala,

His work was appreciated and got good reviews from all who attended. It was sad to see him leave.. He is such a warm and genuine person that his presence will be missed.
We wish Blaise a very fruitful Career as an Artist and wish him Well.

Portrait in Clay

September 15, 2010 § Leave a comment


We are doing a portrait of a friend :  Snehal Kashikar, in clay at the college of fine arts, ahmedabad as demonstration for the sculpture workshop held during the summer.

Portraits are always are interesting to make.  It has been a while since we last did anything realistic… that too in sculpture… but the minute you touch clay it all comes back… wonderful experience in all 🙂

at work… !!!
