Rekhta – Solo show of Paintings By well-known artist Ravindra Pawar in Jehangir Art Gallery

From: 8th to 14th February 2022 “Rekhta” Phrases of the Mystical Ensemble Solo show of Paintings By well-known artist Ravindra Pawar VENUE: Jehangir Art Gallery 161- B, M.G. Road Kala Ghoda, Mumbai 400 001 Timing: 11am to 7pm Contact: 98191 31395 ‘Living in Mumbai, being and experiencing the fast lifestyle, observing the overlapping visuals while commuting by local trains and buses of the people packed in the limited space and colors of the fabric they wear, and while going around the City – the slums, buildings, walls crumbling, rusted hoardings, scratches, walls cracks, drops of water and flow of liquid, trees, leaves, geometrical forms shapes, roads, and many other elements forms visual frames of composition and embedded in my subconscious mind. These stimulate and inspire me to draw and paint. Also, my interaction with children, juveniles, and or otherwise, their emotions, psychological and social issues, et al. are part of my subconscious memory which influences my work. My paintings are pure visual experiences that are to be seen by the viewer’, says Ravindra. This is Mumbai and Ravindra has been living here for years, working with the Juveniles. He has been interacting with these Juveniles who have been labeled as difficult to discuss the various ups and downs of their life. I think Ravindra’s brilliant use of colours, powerful strokes, different shapes and lines, transparency, roughness has really come a long way wherein he subconsciously depicts all that he has observed and perceived through his art. The fields of geometrical forms and colors transport one to the Color-Field Abstract Expressionist movement. The play of color on the psyche of humans is as primitive as is man, and so is the therapeutic value of colors which has a very deep impact on our minds and psychological wellbeing. Expressing through Art that which cannot be spoken heals the deeper held aspects of our emotions and...

The Eternal – An Exhibition Of Watercolor Paintings By well-known artist Ashok Namdeo Dhivare In Jehangir Art Gallery

From: 1st to 7th February 2022 “The Eternal” An Exhibition of Watercolor Paintings By well-known artist Ashok Namdeo Dhivare VENUE: Jehangir Art Gallery 161-B, M.G. Road, Kala Ghoda, Mumbai 400001 Timing: 11am to 7pm Contact: 98508 69670 As the changing forms of nature leave their reflections on a painter’s mind it begins to give shapes to them.  Really speaking, it is a just thought emerging in his consciousness; simultaneously, however, it becomes an inner conflict rooted in his mind.  A process to search for form in an object begins at the centre of an individual’s mind. This process is highly individualistic and deep but it is equally obscure. The presence of an object in nature is stable as well as unstable and forward-moving; this in fact is an unending, ongoing process. It is the way of the world; in a way, it is the way the world behaves. ‘The Eternal’ is an exhibition of paintings meant to present this thought. It is a search for the eternal existence of the self in the brisk-paced happenings and the fast deterioration of human values taking place around us. The progressive journey of the painter, Mr Ashok Dhivare, has been moving forward through a variety of forms and mediums like nature painting, abstract style and cityscape. The paintings in this exhibition belong to the category of ‘Nature painting.’ The artist has consciously used watercolours as a medium. The moisture of the mind’s sensitivity and its subtlety for the moments escaped is noticeable in them in addition to a feeling of being lost. The human images in these paintings are indistinct and unclear. The structures and leftover remains of constructions around them force us to search for the eternal. The use of time and space keeps haunting our minds as these paintings begin to overpower us by coming closer and establishing an uncanny relation with us....
