"Re-Fractions" comprises works of over twelve young Hyderabad-based artists, and who have hardly figured earlier in the art scenario. So why "Re-Fractions"?

"Because here it is taken as a double generative term. This can either be a complete deviation from the dominant source or a reassembling with fractions of the source still visible. When a visual language showers its light through an environment, a school, it is usually reflected through its torchbearers. But when the latter wish for distinctness despite the influence, the ray gets re-fracted, and the outcome is multi-hued," says Rohini Iyengar, the curator of the show.

Well, the pictures literally seem 're-fracted' - rather perplexed, with each artist almost dabbling through mediums and also with images. These are a few young artists currently living and practicing in Hyderabad, and caught between the established artists of over two generations and struggling to bring to light their works and concerns. But, sadly, few of them seem promising, and most of them have already fallen into mazes of confused concerns and aesthetics.

Among these, the few good works displayed are by Bhasker and Pushpavati. The former shows acrylics in dark deep hues titled "Landscapes", while the latter mounts her etchings of ritual images of snakes, which, if not cognitively, are at least visually appealing.

Mallesh and Manohar are two artists who have painted their minds out in huge canvases that can be considered their 'mindscapes'. Mallesh's static images of men and women in flat colors against a backdrop of jumbled hues seem to be 'passing through' - a journey of life. And Manohar's acrylics are more literal with direct symbols, like, for example, a man concentrating on a small paper boat in a bowl of water, and another, supporting a play slide through which balls only seem to roll down.

Srinath is one artist who has dabbled in many a material like ink drawings, paper pulp work and photogram. Narendra Chari, Mrithunjay, Rajendra, Sajith, Sanjeev and Venkatesh are the other artists participating in the exhibition.
