Poetry on canvas
If poetry could be visual and expressed through the imagination of a painter, then Poetic Reveries would have been its form of expression. This exhibition, which is currently on at a south Delhi gallery, brings to the forefront the artworks of fresh, young artists.
The objective is to interpret art and give people a chance to appreciate the works. Each artist has dealt with a different view and have myriad tales to unravel.
Take for instance the works of Suhas Das. They are decorative and Das has used mostly dark hues. He loves to paint Krishna and in his paintings he has brought out the many faces of a woman. They depict the woman — both as a nurturer as also an epitome of strength. One of his works shows how Indian women are leaving their old selves behind and embracing modernity.
Lurking somewhere in the middle of reality and dreams, W. Inoaton has dealt with figurative art . Inspired by folklore and natural beauty of Manipur, Inoaton's works depict a dream-like poetry on canvas.
Sudip Routh portrays realistic and semi-realistic stories of the eternal 'yin' and 'yang'. 'The beauty and mystery of love and relationship between men and women greatly intrigues and inspires me', says Routh. For him, the female represents nature while the male is a personification of himself as an artist.
The society around him is what Dipankar Sikdar draws his ideas from. Social and political issues play a prominent role on his canvases and the people and his surroundings are as real as his art.
The whole essence of the exhibition is to invoke art and make it possible for everyone to appreciate it. The theme is essentially a dreamy affair of poetry on canvas.
