On View at Pradarshak - Watercolour abstracts by Shefali Shah
Colour and form, both significant tangible elements in fine art, also form the basic premise of take-off in case of an abstract artist. Shefali, young and upcoming, just a single solo exhibition old, strives to express herself in a similar vein, playfully flirting with colour and form; conveying her musings to her captive audience.
“The freedom of expression, medium and form is the essence of contemporary art”, says Shefali and being a contemporary artist, not lending herself to traditional forms of Indian art, she prefers the former medium of conveying herself.
Having worked with renowned artist Mr. Anand Mohan Naik, for 3 years has given her the confidence to explore new boundaries of self-expression through painting, showcasing inner change and moments at the subconscious level. “In each of my work, I like to capture moments, where we can have so many mixed emotions with colours and forms”.
The artist’s background in photography strengthens her repertoire as do her numerous participations in various group exhibitions. It is a refinement of thought that now waits to be explored; an exercise that will gradually mature both - the artist’s thought and technique.
The exhibition shall be on view till 22nd Sept.’13.
