Water and color together on paper transform into those transparent layers with images emerging almost with a mystified lightness. Artists since time immemorial have chosen this medium to extend their painterly languages and create spontaneous silhouettes and shades on paper. For, watercolour has the quality to spread evolving into a form, or move generously along the brush of the painter. The medium is an absolute take-off point for any painter to develop an individual artistic vocabulary.

"But, unfortunately, this is the medium most neglected by the mainstream contemporary artists, who take to either oils or acrylics, including mixed media, for their creative process," opines curator Atiya Amjad who aims to ensemble a 'Mosaic' of watercolor pictures by different artists. The present exhibition shows many artists who've taken to watercolors at a young age only to continue, for the medium seems to engross them deep into its quality of dreamy featheriness. On the other hand, many artists, based on the exercises in watercolour painting, have branched off into various other mediums.

One generic aspect that every artist feels is that watercolor not only guides you into the language of painting, but also remains an ever enchanting medium for a creative language - seemingly simple and yet enticingly difficult in technique. The present show comprises of works of over 20 artists from Shantiniketan and Hyderabad who make an attempt to glorify the possibilities and in-depth graces of the medium of watercolor. And so is the approach of the viewers who look and feel the medium of painting, rather than concentrate on the individualistic artistic traits.

One could discern a delight in these works. Artists like Ambadas Mohorkar, Sachin Joltare, Farahad Tamkanat, Sarkar, Sirajiddin and Laxman Aley, among others, explore those romantic graces in depicting nature-based landscapes, realistic figurative images, or even flora and fauna, while other artists like Sudhir Kumar Dupatti, Srikanth Kurva, Mohan Malvya and Srikanth Dhunde explore the contemporary possibilities in handling images through watercolors. Binoy Koley, Anir Ban, Mira Balabrahma, Subhajit Das, Sankar Mandal were other artists from shanty Niketan who showed their expressive works in the medium.

One rare painting of a yesteryear artist, T K Mukherjee, who studied painting in England over a century ago, is a delicate example of watercolor painting. His daughter brings this painting that adds altogether a different horizon, to the present exhibition. Titled "A scene At Ranchi", this painting shows a man sitting at a riverbed surrounded by trees.
