The name can be happily misleading until you realize this is being held at Daira. It is actually still misleading - these four artists are hardly mere figures.
Daira Art Gallery is celebrating its 5th anniversary by organising a group exhibition from the 19th to the 30th of October. The exhibition is called Four Figures, owing to it being a group show by four artists - Basanth Bhargava, Kishore Dangle, Ravindra Shanker Roy and Sandeep Soni. It is their second show, the first being held at the Alliance Francaise, Delhi.
Basant Bhargav takes inspiration from his name and celebrates 'basant', spring, in his paintings. His landscapes do not dipict any specific place but only his imagination. He paints what he feels about what he has seen. He is interested in abstract formulation of forms, and creates them with his colors.
Kishore Dangle is an introvert, but his work is entirely opposite to him. It expresses the happiness and pain within him through layers and tones of just one or two colors.
Ravindra Shankar Roy is a passout of Shantiniketan. He paints naturalistic figures in dream-like surroundings. The illusion created by this duality is most attractive in his paintings.
Sandeep Soni likes to experiment with new techniques of painting. He starts with intuition and ends with convention.
