On View at Pradarshak – Landscapes by Student Artists



2nd – 14th July 2012: Pradarshak presents Vidyarthi Vishesh Phase I - Landscape Paintings by Students 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 I – Landscapes.  Featured are works by artists Atul Bangal, Bhushan Bhombale, Rohan Chavan, Priyanka Nandgaonkar, Sagar Maske, Satish Mane, Nilesh Sutar, Suhas Bhiwankar, Mukesh Chaudhari, and Rohan More among several others.

Pablo Picasso once said, “Painting is just another way of keeping a diary.” As a landscape artist and art lover would say – a diary that records the moods of nature and its shifting impact on the human psyche.

Such is the power of nature that the artist is drawn into its realm and can’t resist capturing the visual for posterity.  Many a landscapist is known to paint on the spot and using the trickiest medium – watercolour on cartridge or hand-made paper. The brush work, finger-work, knife-work... in varied mediums, at times pure; at others, mixed; recreates vivid imagery that serves to enhance many an enchanting interior.

To reiterate a phenomenon that we see time and again - one literally needs to stand back to view a painting and get immersed into its depth; whilst the artist has created this marvel at close quarters. This is the most amazing facet of a landscape painting.

  1. Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, " ...thus in our fine arts not imitation but creation is the aim.
    The details,the prose of nature, the painter should omit and give us only the spirit and the splendor." These works certainly capture the spirit of Emerson's intent.

  4. This is cool, a bit confusing and I still haven't figured it out but interesting. The lightting is the question, however it's a neat painting.
