India International Centre is hosting an exhibition titled Aura — The Mystery by Rajinder Kumar Saini. The show exhibits abstracts in Chinese black ink.
“Aura, or the halo claimed as <g data-gr-id="36">spiritual</g> signature is the mystery behind <g data-gr-id="37">universe</g> and the life on earth. Perhaps, since the evolution of human life, whether by God or by nature, the meaning of aura had always been <g data-gr-id="29">illusive</g>, amazing and mysterious,” says Saini.
The germane of the present exhibition of paintings in Chinese black ink in abstract form is unique in its own way. The seed for the said collection was originated when her mother, then 92 years old, had entered the phase of deep meditation. In order to provide a congenial atmosphere, he started playing spiritual music to reach her inner soul. Consequently, he had to <g data-gr-id="30">spent</g> more than 500 hours creating blissful music.
Saini is a self-taught artist with a natural flair that was nurtured under the guidance of his teacher, late G B L Bhatnagar. Being a retired civil servant, he has been working with <g data-gr-id="23">water colours</g>, painting in small formats, landscapes and is a practitioner of Chinese black ink for over 25 years. He has had a number of exhibitions in India and abroad both as a solo <g data-gr-id="25">artiste</g> and in group exhibitions.
