Multipolarity of life that continues to invigorate our plural society, is mirrored in this exhibition of art works by 5 emerging artists from different regions of our country.
The eclectic and fascinating mix of arts in diverse media and manifestations, by these young artists, selected and nurtured by Arts4All, present an interesting assemblage with different artists giving his/her own interpretation and take on their stories or beliefs. The creative expressions resonate the continuum of our socio-cultural milieu in new colors and forms as the artists respond to the changing times and needs. The artworks adorning various themes, mediums, colors, and juxtaposing the normal with the un-expected, evoke a sense of vastness and variation that reflects to cherish and appreciate life, love, nature, or anything else that defines our diverse world.
Keerti Pooja’s work explores cities and conversations that had gone silent during the early days of the lockdown. The works draw on an individual’s experience of common architectural spaces, and the conformity of materials and forms, that have been filtered through regulation and mass production. Ravi Chunchula attempts to imbibe the stories of the cultural vibrancy of the people in his surroundings through his artworks. Minimal renderings in varying sizes and inexplicable juxtapositions are a hallmark of Ravi’s engaging compostions. Srinivas Pulagam attempts to depict various species as human companions through his art work right from the puranic period, that represent one or more aspects of luck and divinity by posing as a vehicle, power and so on for gods and goddesses. Viswanath’s monochromatic & static works take us from the cacophony of city life to a simpler time. The artist wants his artworks to go beyond the aesthetics and to be a medium by which the lives of his community can be seen & understood. Lokanath’s works transcend into sculptural wall installations painstakingly made out of plywood where he depicts the changing environments in our cities in a surreal dreamy landscape.
