Abstract art uses a visual language of form, color and line to create a composition which may continue to exist with a level of autonomy from visual orientation in the world. Abstract art is different from design and ornamentation in the sense that it navigates through the inner world of emotion and contemplation. Abstraction indicates a departure from reality in depiction of imagery in art. This departure from accurate representation can be only slight, or it can be partial, or it can be complete.
The show comprises abstract art works by Bose Krishnamachari, Ravi Gossain, Manisha Gawade, Sunando Mazumdar, Pradeep Ahirwar, Nisha Sharma, Devendra Singh, Durgesh Sahu, Anand Tahenguria, Alka Raghuvanshi, Rajesh Baderia.
The title of the show suggests the representation of various colours and endless composition in the abstract forms of the art work. In the work of Bose any one can feel the conceptual aspect. Plurality of colours is juxtaposed against skilful which signifies almost pictorial demonstration.
As he said: “I refine my color to brightness. I have learnt this usage from the alternately subdued and lavish color codes of Indian ceremonies and ritual performances; the costumes, the gestures of enactment…”
Talking about Gossain’s works the abstraction is the application of the materials, colours, surface, form and line. His pictures appear to be relief composed with layers of paint on each canvas.
Manisha’s abstract art works are orchestration of colour against texture almost forces the viewer to follow the draggling of the brush stroke.
Sunando’s works are the subconscious composition of artist’s inner sense. It is not mend to be created.
The works by Nisha Sharma are although abstract, but based around the elements of nature that are replicated in a spontaneous experiment of colours and assorted textures that create for a surprising visual delight.
Devendra looks for energy and movement, but his search is not the frantic. Witnessing these works gives one a feeling of a quest.
Anand in his search for the realm of dreams has travelled inwards. His works have become startlingly minimal, whispering about his dreams. He explores the world through the veil, peeping something momentary which leaves an impact for ever.
Durgesh goes in the pursuit of balance in his paintings searching for the gradually more subtle link between nature and humanity.
