SCULPT FOR DELHI
Art is what metamorphoses the world into a more humane world and 'Sculpt for Delhi', an exhibition by the Delhi Art Society is one such attempt to control your world to consecutively take over culture, to model one that wholesome living can take place in.
An interesting mix of distinctive sculptures by eminent sculptors from all over India was showcased at the Gandhi King Plaza, India International Center (IIC) on February 27 where Anil Baijal, Lt. Governor Delhi was present as the Chief guest for the evening.
"Our main motive is to promote public art among people and create awareness about the importance and positive impact it lays on the common man. Also, budding artists and sculptors get motivation and recognition through initiatives like these, which is indeed a necessity for them," says Neeraj Gupta, organizer and President of Delhi art society.
Participating artists at the 'Sculpt for Delhi' have created tangible forms and figures of smooth stimulations, gradual escalation of symmetry and a hint of mystery. Thus, making the exuberance of the creations visually palpable.
Neeraj Gupta, staying true to his craft believes that 'liberating' forms is almost a mystical practice and thus brings together his 'piece de resistance' a dreamy amalgamation of form, features, ideations and ideals. OP Khare emphasizes on vintage shapes and patterns with sharp strokes and an uncontrolled yet controlled flow of creativity.
Naresh Kapuria's earthy feels and raw textures are a vision to be seen, felt and imagined. National award recipient Madhab Das' revolution is a cast iron delight, an exceedingly visionary take on emotive hurls and poignant themes. Bhola Kumar with his carefully curated piece has begun a tide of perfect technique and wonder that applauds the artist's finesse. BK Singh's name requires no reckoning when it comes to his magnum opus of a body of work. Rajesh K. Baderia has brought in the finer details of symmetry and structure with his work, with a mixture of wood and metal forming an infinite communion. Shovin Bhattacharjee highlights 'The Mystery of Life' in stainless steel and aluminium with impeccable finishing, a reflective beauty and so much left for interpretation.
Pramod K Mann's classical rendering of work does not only satiate an art lover's hunger but reinstates meaning and commentary.
Guests who were seen appreciating the sculptors were U.D Singh, Uma Vasudev, Sharon Lowen, Manisha Saxena, Aruna Vasudev, Kapila Vatsayan, Mir Imtiyaz, Adwaita Gadanayak and many more.
This exhibition at IIC will be open for public viewing until March 14 from 11 am to 7 pm every day.
