India’s country map is a real-time delusion of a continent itself. A mystical vast land that is nourishing diverse beings, who spread inspiration through their creativity and creations since decades. The Summer Strokes Exhibition at Herwitz Art Gallery, Amdavad Ni Gufa stretched the same fascination yesterday during its inauguration. A show that cumulatively displays 29 artists across the nation under a single dome was visited and reviewed by Creative Yatra. The event will prolong from June 7, 2016 to June 12, 2016 and the formal timings for the same are 04:00 PM to 08:00 PM.
An expertise extravaganza, where precision was the prominent aesthetic visible and every stroke was smoothly flaunted on canvas by artists. The fusion of typically homogeneous art forms with contemporary colour scheme gave viewers a treat to eyes and thoughts. The sculptures had an imaginative structure which was flowing like a rhythm and was made of wood, bronze and other metals. The event had some legendary painters art exhibited like Suhas Roy’s Woman with the Red Bindi, and Jogen Chaudhary’s free hand dreamer was a superb masterpiece of pastels on paper. The detailing of Dancing Gopiyan Painting of Subrata Gangopadhyay had a different aura in itself.
A few other magnificent artists like Amit Bhar, Bharti Prajapati, Prasenjit Sengupta, Priya Anand Pariyani, Sekhar Kar, Nilam Kapadia, Subrata Chowdhury and Swarnali Pal gifted audience a perspective of combining spirituality, womanhood, fulfilment, beauty and illusion in a single sight.
The abstract sculptures and paintings presented by Arpita Bhavsar, C.D. Mistry, Debjani, Hetal Shah, Mahendra kadia, Subrata Paul, Tapas Sarkar and Somnath Chakraborty were unique and engraved a deep reflection of the purpose of existence within its making. A longing caress feeling and an emotion of authority and power from diverse culture of India was pampered by Subrata Das, Shyamal Mukherjee, Vivek Kumavat and Vrindavan Solanki in their duo/couple paintings.
A successful attempt to dilute the roots of humanism and supernatural powers within the landscapes and portraits by Madhumita Bhattacharrya, Manas Roy, Sucharita Singh, Swapan Roy, Tanushree Chatterjee and Tanmay Banerjee is a must watch.
Overall Creative Yatra strongly recommends everyone to spare a few hours out of their busy schedule and take look at this art exhibition, which has the potential to redefine your innerself. A Double thumbs up to the art work and the systematic curation by Mr. Susanta Das.
