Started by H Madhu in Chennai, Lakshana Art Gallery has its head office in Chennai, and now has 3 branches - one in Hyderabad, one in Bangalore and one in Coimbatore. The branch at Masab Tank is supervised by Rama, who has been with Lakshana for 5-6 years now. She is currently organizing a 10-day exhibition of paintings titled Chennai To Delhi Via Hyderabad, by 4 artists. The artists who will take part are Vinay Kumar (Chennai), Susnata Chattopadhyay (Delhi), P J Stalin (Hyderabad) and Murali Thrigulla (Secunderabad).

The importance of economy in a mundane life; the usage of electronic gadgets, ATM cards and information technology; and the placement of ourselves in society made Vinay Kumar think of art in a more precise manner. Being an artist, Kumar explored different ideas and craftsmanship in his works; and from time to time, he was also attracted by the various dramas happening between manufacturers, middle persons and end users of all commodity items. These become his focal point for his creations as "Overlaps".

Vinay has used the electronic print media like colour photocopying, lasers and carbon impressions to express various situations of our contemporary lives. He treats the images with a layering technique, and in order to bring the concept of time and space into his work, uses drawing and water colours with transparency on computer-generated collages.

Susnata Chattopadhayay is searching for landscapes that come in her dreams, or that she sometimes sees from the train or bus windows during her journeys. Essaying the form and nature of the world with due care, that is with an artistic conscience, Susnata Chattopadhayay appears to draw a sense of form from human habitations.

P J Stalin's paintings beckon the viewer to ponder and decipher them. For an artist who was basically into realistic in his student days, Stalin developed his personal style inspired by the action paintings of Jackson Pollock and abstract 'surfaces' of Prabhakar Kolte. Stalin's works chart a new sphere the realm non-figurative representation.

Through layering and mixing of colours in a random fashion, Stalin develops the abstract forms in his works. The several applications of colours lead to the textures. The compositions are 'divided' into blocks of different sizes wherein various geometric forms like circles, square, rectangles and curves coalesce to cover the pictorial space. This interplay of geometry imparts a spatial order to the works.

Thrigulla Murali is a versatile artist who portrays life in the backdrop of a larger-than-life background. He depicts humans as tiny creatures in comparison to nature; he explores life as a journey, an infinity. For this, Murali uses automobiles of different kinds to show life as a constant struggle to dominate and conquer nature.

Murali has developed his own unique style wherein he paints human faces as masks, in different colours and hues, depicting male and female features including various personalities. The inherent adventurous nature makes him take up long journeys by road thus getting a hands-on experience of traveling in different vehicles. These vehicles are captured in myriad colours, shapes and sizes.

All the above of seasoned artists. Some of the paintings that will be on display are Self-Overlapping, Untitled, Growing City, and Got Down At Hyderabad.

The exhibition will be inaugurated by Dr. Amlan Tripathy. Please contact Rama at 2337-8033/2337-8034 for further details.
