After a short interval, the art activity in Hyderabad is gradually brightening up for the season. And this time around it's the corporate houses that are playing host to art and the artists. After the impressive art camp and exhibition sponsored by Dr. Reddy's Laboratories, it is now the new bank in town that's doing it - the ABN-Amro Bank on Road No. 1, Banjara Hills.

Although the plush reception area of the bank is an ideal showcase for the 5 participating artists, the display of works was a bit misplaced on the crowded opening day on July 7. Inaugurated by Padmasri Jagdish Mittal, the show highlighted a freshness of style and treatment.

Srinivasa Chary and Sajid Bin Amar especially exhibited singularity in expression and artistic process. Srinivasa Chary's works can be interpreted as instances pertaining to the artist's personal experiences - his transcendence from the material to the spiritual, attempting to maintain a balance between the elusive reality and the abstract reality.

His small portrait frames magnify his technical abilities to exploit his artistic conceptions. In fact, his workmanship unfolds a duality; primarily a painting, there is a concentrated treatment, a brilliance in application which generally goes into frescos on walls. Such a result is due to his layers of egg-tempera.

The most progressive among the group of five here is Sajid Bin Amar. His works exhibit a passion - a passion for collecting and keenly studying the visual pleasures in all sorts of designs available - glossy print adverts, design drafts and packaging material - to reinvent a text and texture dormant in his collection of media. His pleasure exudes in the sheer textural variations that he installs upon his mount board which contest his insatiable appetite for living in the 'present' with a link with the past and a hope for a future.

The only abstractionist in Hyderabad, L N V Srinivas, exhibited frames that indicate his base in semi-figurative and pure abstraction. A meditative painter, Srinivas is forever attempting to emancipate the artist in him from the existing clichés of his individual expression. In fact, the blue palette is a sequence of his personal search.

The sculptor, Srinivas Reddy, presented his usual exotic busts in fiberglass and painted terracotta during this show. Although the expressive metamorphosis is definite in his work, the stagnation of content is equally visible for his regular audience. But perhaps his shift to metal casting will hopefully mould some interesting shifts.

The gloomy graphics by Hanumanth Rao were a little enlivened due to a painting by the same artist. But the sudden bust of color upon the melancholic subject was in sharp contrast to the monotonic prints.

The show is open to the public at the ABN-Amro reception area between 9.00am and 9.00pm until July 14. Please contact 666-4321 (ext 5101) for further details.
