Mumbai-based Gallery Pradarshak presents Vidyarthi Vishesh 2019 - Phase IV
The Student Special exhibition is in its 24th consecutive year, and this phase features still life, graphic prints and drawings
Typically commonplace objects come to life as these young artists dabble in creative arrangements of inanimate objects to capture a beauty that is most often otherwise taken for granted. Still Life paintings trace beginner steps in every artist’s life, but, aren’t as easy to capture as they may seem. Often, artists work and rework a painting to get things right - says a spokesperson from Gallery Pradarshak about their showcase of a small collection from the show that scores on both, treatment and aesthetics
At this show, the lesser visited genres of graphic prints and pen and ink drawings once again draw into prominence an aesthetic that may otherwise go unnoticed. Everyday occurences like a group of people chatting, someone admiring the sky, someone cycling… turn into intriguing pieces of artistic expression as young artists etch into a medium like wood or acrylic or metal and take multiple impressions, varying the tonal qualities of each print - until a new perspective is born.
The inherent beauty of a monochromatic work of art is, of course, almost always spellbinding.
Featured are works by Pratik Risbud, Sayali Mhsakar, Siddhi Sawant, Prathamesh Golwankar, Kaustubh Gawde, Vikrant Sawant, Shefali P. Hakani, Nisha Netai Bachar, Swarali Abhay Jape, Deshna B. Parekh, Sachin Bhuyekar, Prakash Kurhade, Swapnil Shekhar Vechalekar and Shreya Vishnukumar Kalantry.
