Engrossed in art
Showcasing some breath-taking masterpieces, 'Engross', an art show by Sudip Roy, Niren Sen Gupta, S.C Ahuja and Suresh Kumar is taking place at the India Habitat Centre until January 22.
Sudip Roy's work includes pencil sketches and watercolours, charcoals and a heady series of landscape done in limped line drawing. His forte lies in his realistic and in-depth rendering of still life. One of his recent famed painting 'Charulata' is a perfectly demarcated figure which casts a spell on its beholders with the right touch of sensuality added to it. Considering his artwork he said, "Art is something which makes you breathe with a different kind of happiness." Some of his artworks include Victoria Memorial painting, Venice painting, and Mother Teresa painting.
Whereas, Niren Sengupta is a contemporary artist. He finds lasting beauty in the serenity of the total surrender of monks of Ramakrishna Mission. A mission that signifies sacrifices and service to mankind. His works are aesthetic expressions of his inner reflections infused with serenity, sacrifice, service and beauty.
Suresh Kumar is a Bangalore-based Sculptor. He recently travelled to Uzbekistan for an international show in "Srijan-Yatra" group exhibition and "The Bridge"international Art exhibition at The Nehru - Wangchuck Cultural Centre (NWCC) Bhutan. His recent project "The Per-Fumes" project was a response to Suresh's ongoing concern about education in the arts, documentation of contemporary practices, and his interest in creating collective spaces for sharing in-process work. 'It is also an ideological comment on Suresh's approach to arts practice. He wished to develop the pedagogy of collaborative community and public art by documenting the work of 180 Bangalore-based visual artists via the medium of video. While expressing about his paintings he said , "A sculpture is an art of intelligence."
S.C Ahuja is heavily inspired by natural surroundings, and his sculptures touch the everyday reality of an ordinary man. He brings his expertise to the fore by envisioning the emotions and expressions of different people and decoding the same contemplation through the curves of his sculptures. In his recent work, he showcased sculptures of music artist. He also mentioned "Art is not what you see but what you make others see.
