28th July 2012: Pradarshak presents Vidyarthi
Vishesh Phase II - Abstract Paintings by Student Artists.
Pradarshak is proud to present
"Vidyarthi Vishesh" - the student special in its seventeenth
consecutive year. Participating are around 60 students from leading colleges of
art in Mumbai, Pune, Kolhapur, Sangli, Latur and Nasik. We also have entries
from Gadchiroli and Varanasi this year.
Based on an interactive principle,
the student exhibition extends over a period of 8 weeks and has been
phased out to convenience the art enthusiast.
Phase II – Abstracts. Featured
are works by artists Nilesh Sutar, Nandini Pantawane, Satish Mane, Tushar
Jadyal, Kaustubh Bhalkar, Namita S Kanade, Pravin Dalvi, Prashant Date, Shanti Kasivishwanathan, Somnath
Adamane and Aparna Dalvi among several others.
Abstraction indicates a departure from reality in depiction ofimageryin art. This departure from accurate
representation can be only slight, or it can be partial, or it can be complete.
Abstraction exists along a continuum. However, where students of abstract art
are concerned, the work of art is more a composition that juxtaposes form and colour with technique and
subject leading to a representation of artistic expression, possibly in context
to a particular instance or time.
Total abstraction bears no trace of any reference to anything
recognizable and one can say that abstract art by students fits well into this
It is often said that when visual
art becomes more abstract, it begins to allude to music as our senses respond
to various stimuli that are connected at a deeper aesthetic level. A huge
possibility thus, that every time one contemplates an abstract painting, one
travels through a different plane of thought; visualizing a variation, and
enjoying it each time.
