This collaborative showing is an eye opener into trends and facilities that are currently evolving at serious art gatherings, where this chosen handful has displayed their innovative interpretations earlier.
Taking his sculptural explication of the kinetic force to the next notch, sculptor Ankit Patel uses a bicycle in motion to represent his concept of movement and energy. Titled Winner’s Pride, its strikes by its spruce linearity, rhythm of motion and exactitude of design repetition.
A novel twist to a game of chess in the work titled Winner’s Pride, by artist Sanjay Srivastava, has the grip of aggressiveness shown in a fresh take by the pawn-like figures roofed under an inescapable pair of giant forms. The fierce spirit of competitiveness a characteristic outcome of the game, exploits the sport to provide the keynote for the artwork.
The minutea of brass nails and chess pawns simulate the detached yet cumulative attitude of metropolitan living in the work by sculptor Ramesh Chandra Thorat. Known for his meditative stance in depicting evolutionary growth, his work exudes the contrast of the solidity of natural forces against the vulnerability of the human race in its surroundings.
The solidity of the form in the bronze work by artist Ratan Krishna Saha excites viewer interest through its focal imagery of a wheel in motion. Its compact contours and grounded format interpret the creative energies of the work into a forceful yet compassionate narrative.
The only painter in the group Asit Patrnaik, is known for his graphic exactitude, granulated texturing of the backdrop and his deep understanding of the colour palette. In the work titled Thoughtscape, he practically entices the viewer to delve beyond the surface and come up with an understanding of the silent play of moods that the forms in the foreground seem to convey.
The five-member consortium has offered a handpicked series of works that have gelled together through their artistic competence, their deep-seated interpretative energies and their expert execution. The exhibition is therefore a must-see for art lovers with a yen for the innovative and the competent.
