The Chitramayee State Gallery of Fine Arts, Jubilee Hills, Hyderabad, is hosting its periodic group exhibition for artists from 13th – 24th October 2010, called Mann Ke Teen Rang. I am participating with few of my works this time. This would be a great opportunity for artists and art lovers to come together under one roof, for there will be a variety of artworks by a large pool of artists. These 10 days of art exhibits, viewing others works, getting inspiredd, and a lot more, should be exciting.
I chose this painting as rocks are an integral part of the the Hyderabadi landscape. For those who are in love with rocks, gigantic boulders, and natural geologic rock formations, Hyderabad is the place to come and see them in their natural splendour (before they vanish, thanks to the ruthless devastation under the guise of urban development). Having grown up midst the rocks, it is but natural to bring them in my abstracts. The bonus being the fact that the State Art Gallery itself is nestled among and above these natural rocks formations. If not for the artworks, you can still view the building edifice.
I included “The Refuge I Seek” abstract landscape oil painting as I repeatedly saw figures and rural artworks at the gallery. I wanted to bring in my share of impressionism.
I am hoping that I will get to see a lot of different works and styles of other artists. Indeed, there is no end to the joy of seeing an artwork before your eyes.
