Bangalore, Thursday, 6th February 2014: Gallery-g presents “2D3D” -a compelling overview of fusion art with paintings and sculptures as part of its 11th anniversary show to be held during the month of February 2014. This amalgamation of art and sculptures is showcased through Gallery-g’s very own AIP (Artist Initiative Programme) platform that promotes and showcases art that has never been viewed before. It also offers first time artists and artisans a platform to bring out the best in them.
The nine-day long show will take Gallery-g’s AIP to the next level by entering into three different styles of art. Gallery-g explores three new regions, Andhra Pradesh with Kandi Narasimalu, Maharashtra with Priti Singh and the South Asian Region with its first ever show with Sri Lankan artist, Leo Pasquale, starting February 22nd, 2014 at Gallery-g located at Lavelle Road.
The exhibition explores three major themes embraced by this new generation of artists. One can find an aroma of affinity and affection for the home land in the works by artist Nasimhulu Kandi; the artist in a very stylistically rich manner celebrates the many moments and episodes from his village in his work. He recreates them on his canvas keeping the unpretentious and natural attractiveness of the village folk intact.
What makes the Sri Lankan artist Leo Pasquale unique is his artistic creations. Multiplicity of themes and technical styles is one of the salient features of his art. Some themes seem to be expressive of his personal life experiences while some signify the socio-political realities of the time. Technically he uses methods that are possible only in the computer and digital age, and in a large group of his work the geometrical approach is used meaningfully.
Priti Singh has a unique take on the most common Indian theme...The Gods. Priti believes in imagination, which has no boundaries. She is always in search of doing things in a creative way, which will portray the Indian mythology in a very different way. Priti’s paintings are inspired by Gond art and culture, and the way they use fluorescent colours always attracted her and that attraction became a great influence on her which is the reason of fluorescent colours on most of her paintings.
Gitanjali Maini, the owner of Gallery-g shares, “This is the first time I have taken AIP across the Asia region, and I am very excited about this show as it is also our 11th anniversary show. All 3 artists are experienced and extremely talented and will be featuring their work of art for the first time in our city. The reason for me to bring all 3 of the artists together is their style of work, which is different and unique from each other. It will be amazing to see how the fusion of paintings and sculptures bring life to the gallery.”
She further added “Our AIP program provides artists a platform to showcase their works. It is a place for all art lovers to experience, express and establish themselves and inspire a million others to follow their dreams and bring a change in the world through art.”
