Dhi Art Space presents a group art exhibition by six artists featuring the different expressive accents of the varied ways of mediums; artists sharing the common language and activity called ‘Drawing’. And this would give a better understanding of how visual expressions vary with the artists in the contemporary times.

Dhi Art Space presents a group art exhibition by six artists featuring the different expressive accents of the varied ways of mediums; artists sharing the common language and activity called ‘Drawing’. And this would give a better understanding of how visual expressions vary with the artists in the contemporary times.

Sharing his platform with the other artists, B Srinivas, whose work is inspired by Rumi’s poetry, says that every work is the representation of some beautiful verses rendered by Rumi. “While I was reading, I arrived at spontaneously transferring of those images, which are popped up in my mind, onto the paper quickly in these charcoal drawings. And that same spontaneity alone is the whole beauty of my drawings.

For me perceiving the one’s own imaginations is essentially important, because they are often subjective and formed through the sensibility and the personality of the person. I would say that these drawings are my emotional responses to the Greatest Poetry from the greatest poet ever lived.”
Artist Murali Chinnasamy shares, “The title of works is “Frequency of thought X”, which symbolically reflects the impact of an intense, persistent thought in mind. Its lines and textures, that weave the world around us, manifest itself in my works.”

Explaining in brief about his works he says, “My work is also easily affected and moulded by my own moods. They absorb whatever emotions that I may be feeling at that moment, my previous experiences, and observations made of the natural world, subconsciously slip into my drawings, merging itself with the creative process until I finish, and discover a new meaning in it. Even when I deal with abstract form, I genuinely portray them with a sense of rationalism.”

Artist Kundan Mondal states that his act and process of painting is basically a continuing interaction between the high art and the popular culture, referring to a considerable extent from the popular Kalighat paintings, Patachitra painting, miniatures as well as those images which carry significant historical traits. “I have developed a personal way of understanding these.

For me, it’s an ongoing dialogue through my paintings and within my paintings between these differing historical visual sources. They are in a way a dialogue between a represented past and my act of representing the present. I feel my attempt is in a way shaping the present continuously through the past, which is forgotten.”

Abhishek Verma, an artist from the show says, “To me, drawing is a beautiful combination of play and pleasure. And I believe that the linear quality of a drawing unveils a lot about the characteristics and nature of the creator.” The gouache and pencil drawings by Abhishek are quintessentially detailed and realistic; accentuate the artist’s unique perspective in building up a personalised dialogue.

“Hence, I tend to use theatrical settings with stark contrasts or subtleties of varying darkness. While the image itself depicts a lot, using text in a work of art creates certain new associations beyond the initial impact of the imagery. It gives a direction of thought, either amplifying one’s impressions or forcing a reroute.”

Apart from this, there are works of other two artists, which are exceptional in their own way. One common thing in all the artworks is the wide usage of different images, figurative, monochrome and few colours. This makes exhibition worth visiting.
