A bewitching exhibition showing human-nature relationship
Our love-affair with nature has been a phenomenon that can neither be fathomed nor illustrated. For painter Bhagat Singh, it is not just an inspiration for creativity but an integral part of the overall life. All his art pieces not only take on the appearance of how the onlooker views the natural object, but it also infuses the mind and soul.
To showcase this phenomenal collection of his artwork, Singh has come up with a solo exhibition titled 'Fragrance of nature', at the Visual art gallery, India Habitat Centre. The paintings will be displayed from September 13 – 17, between 10 am and 7 pm.
Spreading some light on his work, the artist says, "When we think of beauty in nature, we might most immediately think of things that dazzle the senses – the prominence of a mountain, the expanse of the sea, the unfolding of the life of a flower. Often it is merely the perception of these things itself which gives us pleasure, and this emotional response on our part seems to be crucial to our experience of beauty. So, I have tried to correlate the same in my work."
One of his paintings shows a tree in disguise of the earth. The tree symbolizes earth which is beyond any caste, religion, happiness, and sadness. The four yellow birds depict progress and the clouds are a symbol of life. The red birds on mountains mean honesty.
Another painting, 'Pink Lily Pond With Champa Tree', is inspired from an artificial lily pond in the Chandigarh's college of arts. The beauty of the Champa tree is one in a million and can't be expressed in words. The red and blue birds enjoying on the top of the tree and the parrots flying towards the sky is the symbol of success. The pink lily pond is an eye opener for the visualiser.
Born in 1965, Bhagat had a knack for art from a very shortage and took up art as a profession after getting inspired from his home ambiance. In his latest collection, he wants to portray the indiscriminative attitude of man towards nature which has resulted in innumerable problems.
