Lavanya Dutt is debuting with abstract. If you did not understand that, do not let it affect your self-acceptance. It happens to all of us.
Shrishti Art Gallery is organising an exhibition of paintings by Lavanya Dutt, from 14th to 28th April. A collection of about 22 abstract paintings is on display. Dutt, who has been into figurative paintings for a while, is debuting with abstract.
Dutt's latest paintings are in a vibrant and colorful palette. Her abstracts are random, yet organised patterns of geometrical shapes interestingly juxtaposed to create a visual vocabulary beckoning the viewer.
A mosaic of shapes and forms, the latest works in acrylic and oil on canvas bring out the creative impulses of the artist. The bright colors like red, russet, blue and yellow, almost rhythmically blended, are visually arresting.
