Charcoal, acrylic and abstract are mere words. For Archana Tewari, the medium and even the output are mere detail in a journey of self-indulgence in expression.
An exhibition of 40 paintings by Archana Shree Tewari is on at the Chitramayee - State Gallery of Fine Arts, from 22nd to 28th April. The paintings are titled Abstract - Rhythms of Nature, and as the name suggests, the exhibition is of abstract paintings. Tewari has also done four charcoal on paper and eight acrylic colors on acrylic sheet paintings.
Tewari is Kolkata-based multi-talented self-taught young artist and a freelance jewellery designer. She had no formal institutional training in fine arts - during her school/college days she received guidance under an able sculptor of Bengal, Shyamal Roy, for 8 years, which had a great impact on her creative ability.
Her creativity lies in playing with different media, themes and subjects. Even though she likes the abstract form of art, her charcoal paintings on display stand out.
Her abstract paintings have various titles like Inspire Me, White Rain, Confluence, Pillars Of Life, and Golden Glow. The splash of acrylic colors and hues on the canvas reflect the love of the artist towards nature, and a spiritual sensuality. They are also a means to express the artist's feelings of the divine nature through abstractions and figurations.
