Exhibitions and More Art...

Only when one perceives more art will one get to know more about it! That stands true for any work or activity. Along with practice one needs to be constantly, at least frequently be in touch with what we are associated with. Since the time I have been in Kochi, I have had the pleasure of attending a lot of exhibitions and thereby meeting other artists'. It's truly a great vibe that's at disposal! A lot of inspiration!

This week I attended 2 exhibitions at Durbar Hall - 

Earthworms by Tenzing Joseph, Principal at Raja Ravi Varma College of Fine Arts, Alappuzha.
(Currently running until 9 Aug)
It was the inauguration day I had been there; on 3 Aug.

and

Still, Though The One I Sing... (Show ended on 6 Aug)

by Five artists -Antony Joseph, Ashil Antony, Ebey Edassery, Jiji George and Rajasekar.

Personally, I think, each exhibition for me is an eye opener. I get to see a whole world, so different and unique from one another. where each artist exists! A world so personal to them, yet displayed to the public for them to make an attempt to understand that parallel  world, that existence, their insight! 

A few pictures from both the shows beginning with Earthworms...

And finally something that I had been engaged in...casing up two-three canvases at a time...I am splashing colours in one and the other...enjoying it all the while. The best thing about working like that is you are totally immersed in one and/or the other so much so that you don't realize the time passing by! You also get more than one canvas ready around the same time too! I finished two and one is near completion.

When the light fades
I see you!
I carry you in my heart,
My senses,
Overpowering me…
You flow in and out
Letting me sway
In your arms
The white drenching me,
Wrapping me up!


This is the work in progress...

The last one is amazing, Deepa.

Few months back, i went to Gardens for Sculpture in New Jersey and was amazing with the Art-work there, so much so that i wrote an entire post on it here:

Beautiful exhibition and work. I can do one at a time. Unless I finish one, I can't move on to another. Your work look really professional. I can see great talent out there.
