Lord Krishna stares out of all the paintings displayed at the Iconart Gallery. Artist Ruchi Agrawal’s show ‘Anadya: Wreathing Colours of Krishna’ is a tribute to Lord Krishna in a way. “My art is a representation of my devotion for Lord Krishna.
Krishna peaks through my art at me as a common man living an ordinary life. He lives in my every emotion ever since I could feel. Each stroke, each detail, every drop of paint brings him closer to me and the spectator. My art, my colours and his story, merge with the perception of the viewer,”
This devotion is exemplified in the paintings that are dominated by blue and green colours with the flute taking a prominent place in the paintings.
Indore-based artist Ruchi Agrawal’s works ‘Anadya’ means not perishable. She added, “I leave my paintings be at a certain point where everything is not revealed, or hidden behind a curtain of details, which arouses in the person a sense of curiosity.
The intricate detailing in the description of mythological tales of Krishna is my way of expressing my devotion towards him, singing and dancing the tales of Indian mythology, spreading the colour and the cheer,”
The self-taught artist mostly prefers to work with acrylic on canvass. She also launched a book named ‘Anadya’ that is purely based on art meditation.
“My devotion finds an expression through this meditative art across the stretched canvases that strive to live forever in millions of hearts, connecting the dots,” says Ruchi Agrawal.
