Asian Age , May 02 (2006) Nature inspires creative journey
- By Our Correspondent
A solo exhibition of paintings titled "Other World" by artist Trishna was inaugurated at the Lalit Kala Akademi in the capital recently. Inspired by nature and feminine forms, the debut exhibition by the artist promises to be an ideal confluence of creativity and elegance.
A die-hard traveller and possessor of a keen sense of learning from nature, Trishna says, "Though I started painting right from my childhood, I developed a penchant for it only when I went to study visual communication in London. It was really an unforgettable experience of learning from different natural sights, their hidden meanings and also their huge relevance to human beings. And I am very excited about my solo collection of paintings."
Prominent themes reflected on the large canvas range from natural treasures like waterfalls, green mountains and calm rivers to various feminine forms and heavenly bodies like the sun and the moon, which stand testimony to the undeniable presence of a supreme power governing everything.
On how she came up with her debut exhibition and the inspiration behind it, she adds, "I have been working on this collection since 2004 and it has a lot to do with my travels. But India, a melting pot of unparalleled culture and heritage, has always fascinated me.
The religious places and unmatched heritage sites of the North provide a great visual gratification."
As for the feedback she has received so far, she says that it has been very encouraging and that mature art lovers of the capital are highly appreciative of her ingenious thinking.
The Hindu, August 21(2006) The poetry of visual arts
Bindu Shajan Perappadan
NEW DELHI: "Multiplicity and the Self", a multi-media experience of works by a group of young artists, opened at Visual Arts Gallery of Indian Habitat Centre here on Sunday.
This exhibition is showcasing the works of artists Aditya Pande, Tarun Jung Rawat, Ayesha Kapur, Mekhala Bahl, Remen Chopra, Rohini Devasher, Simrin Mehra, Siya Singh, Sonia Mehra Chawla and Trishna Singh.
The five-day exhibition suggests a brave new terrain where the poetry of visual arts is often completed in the imagination of the viewer.
"Art today is becoming a living statement of the effect of globalisation and of the acceptance of the diaspora by the host society. The works exhibited here signal a shift away from the history of visual art as a single narrative, which distinguishes itself from the inheritance of aesthetic traditions and includes the demands of the new century. The Indian art scene against this backdrop is gaining new ground, signalling a whole new world of images, while retaining its cultural traditions,'' says Alka Pande, consultant arts advisor and curator at Visual Arts Gallery.
She adds that the creative endeavour of the 11 young artists presenting their works at Visual Arts Gallery re-affirms the fact that India is gradually becoming the home for a large number of outstanding intellectuals and authors of art technology and ancient forms of culture.
"The country's ability to straddle new technology with tradition makes it a fertile breeding ground for innovation in art,'' says Alka Pande.
