REVIEW FOR GROUP EXHIBITION OF PAINTINGS FROM SHANTINIKETAN
Kalakriti Art Gallery is organising an exhibition of paintings by a group of four artists from Shantiniketan, Moushumi Biswas, Rituparna Das, Swapna Biswas and Sweta Chandra, from 21st to 31st January, at its premises on Road No. 10, Banjara Hills. The exhibition and exhibited works may create outrageous interpretation, and therefore, the group-show asks for certain clarification in order to avoid hypothetical intentional fallacy.
These four artists have recently passed out from the painting departments of Kala Bhavan of Shantiniketan, and the Faculty of Fine Arts of Baroda. Sweta and Swapna are exploring the 'seer self-hood'. Sweta has conceptually exercised her imaginary as well as empirical experiences while Swapna has struggled with her understanding of the body and its representations.
Sweta's creative circuit travels in between space, form and the routes of executing them up on the surface. It appears that her experimentation with the visual abstracts and illusion in terms of surface and concept has a long way to go.
Rituparna is still in the primordial phase in grasping the basic formal elements of painting. Her paintings display the touch and patch of the various art movements of the Modern West.
European naturalism and photorealism seem to be the apparatus of Moushumi's paintings. But her paintings are a collage of the imageries from varied sources - from renaissance to David Salle, the contemporary American artist.
