Perhaps that is what drove artiste Manu Singh to explore the elemental imaginary landscapes which look like water, earth or sky.

Wings, Shadows and 1000 Birds, a solo exhibition of paintings was showcased at Triveni Kala Sangam.  Works on display were full of large canvas paintings that explore imaginary background and landscapes. These works involve more obfuscation of the Imaginary large wings, shadows and 1000 birds using oil and other elements as mediums.

As the artiste says ‘I’ve always been drawn to ‘wings’ since I was a child. The wings are symbol of aspiring to the greatest heights of accomplishment. Wings (white in color) stands for clarity of mind, and how clean mental focus combined with stable footing can transform our lives in magical ways.

My works 1000 Birds represent joy, harmony, ecstasy, balance, and love. It denotes a sunny outlook in life, spiritual freedom and psychological liberation. Each of us has a shadow that whispers stories of our own self-defeating fears to us. My work shows how understanding our own shadow side can lead us to lives of tremendous realization and peace.’

The artiste says she wanted to see how far he could can push reality to the other side where the ‘real’ is still recognisable, but start becoming partially surreal.

She wanted to see how far he can push both the real and the surreal at the same time into one another, building that tension until they are just one and the same.

Most canvases are black and white paintings with a modern touch, in that the strokes explore movement while the grey field stays constant most of the time. She has experimented with supports as well as with medium.
