Human Transformation: A solo exhibition of paintings by P. R. Narvekar at Aakriti Art Gallery, Kolkata.

The paintings of the eminent artist from Mumbai P.R.Narvekar, will be exhibited at Aakriti Art Gallery. His struggle to build up a form containing his own identity, exemplify how assimilation of tradition with universal values can find an aesthetic resurrection and uplift the local to the level of global. The uniqueness of such ‘form’ along with unveiling of the inner being of the artist enlightens a community-oriented identity that acts as a bridge between national and international ideals of beauty, transforms the local into global. This is what the great artists of the world from Matisse to Modigliani, from Abanindranath Tagore to Jamini Roy did and thus enlightens the human civilization by unfolding its inner essence. Narvekar’s art has a similar lineage of…

GEN NEXT VII

When the monsoons is finally set to bade bye-bye to the City of Joy and autumn starts spreading its brighter patches of clouds in a romantic hide and seek game with the sun and there is a festive mood and fragrance in the air; we all know that strokes of colour, moulds of sculptures and some innovative digital/new age art creations are also set to be showcased because it is the same time of the year to celebrate the Gen Next. Well, Gen Next doesn’t need any more introduction or explanation by now, but of course what is novel and noble in this edition is a matter to be intrigued with and a matter we all are eagerly waiting to get unveiled and come on the board.

Exhibition named “Strokes Of Soulful Thoughts”.Display of Paintings by Amitava Dhar & Sunil De at Aakriti Art Gallery from 5th August,2013 to 31st August, 2013

Amitava Dhar and Sunil De are among those celebrated artists in the contemporary Indian art scenario whose works can be marked as confluence of discourses that speak of both the eternal and the peripheral. Also their works bear the synergy of socio-cultural ethos and the dynamics of the changing societal space and above all the state of being of an individual as a part of it. Though abstraction seems to be predominantly the forte of both the artists, yet the fortitude of their works is determined by the intense emoting synergy of time, beauty, agony, demise, love, loss, spirituality, angst, pain and…

Manifestations of the Mystique

6th May to 31st May , 2013

 

The present show revisits a historical moment in art history with the works of four great acclaimed Masters of Indian art: Nandalal Bose, Jamini Roy, Gopal Ghosh, and Gobardhan Ash and also makes an attempt to question a number of just stated such ‘little tested assumptions’ at a time when more mass culture has spawned its spurious harmonies. As debased modernism retreats more and more into deviance and dissonance, Aakriti Art Gallery feels…
