REVIEW FOR EXHIBITION BY MRINMOY DEBBARMA, DHRUPADI GHOSH & REJI ARACKAL
Three artists, Mrinmoy Debbarma, Dhrupadi Ghosh & Reji Arackal, are exhibiting their prize-winning paintings as a group, at the Kalakriti Art Gallery, from 4th to 14th August. The artists are all winners of the annual French Embassy Krishnakriti Fellowship for 2008-2009.
Mrinmoy Debbarma belongs to Tripura, one of the seven states popularly known as the seven sisters, and which has been ravaged by violence. The acts of violence and their omnipresence today is the central theme of Mrinmoy's work. To explain this, he has taken Disney generated characters like "Tom & Jerry" as a metaphor to question the act of violence.
Dhrupadi Ghosh is a Bengali-Hyderabad artist. His images in his works reflect issues of aggression when we interact with the public - sheer agitation or arguments - and the factor of positioning himself barring any pretention or provocation.
Reji Arackal is a Kerala-born Hyderabadi upcoming artist. His paintings are inspired by the gigantic mountains of Wayanad, the murals, the performing arts and the rituals of Kerala.
