If you are an art enthusiast or an art lover here is your chance to appreciate some contemporary art displayed at the heart of the city. Art Junction is the title of the group exhibition at The Lalit, Barakhamba Avenue, Connaught Place. The Lalit gallery opened after a year with an art show of a dynamic group of artists giving renewed hopes and avenues to the artist community.
Participating artists at the art show are Manish Barodia, Gayatri Tandon, Supna, Jay Samir, Sunita Lamba, M.K.Puri, Beenu Gupta, Aakaksh Rao, Kamini Baghel, Mangae Ram Sharma and Parul Aggarwal. CitySpidey talked to some of the artists and here is what they expressed.
Gayatri Tondon, a resident of Greater Noida, one of the artists whose art was displayed says, “Most of the inspiration for my paintings comes
from life itself. I have been painting since 2002 and most of my subjects are women-centric. As I am eco-feminist my art mostly plays around the nature and experience of my life as a woman.”
She adds, “I’ve painted this art through the eyes of my little daughters, as you can see these ladybugs are so big and nature feels so pleasant. As well as this baby crib and surrounding feels so big.”
Another artist whose sculptures were displayed was Sunita Lamba, a resident of Ramesh Nagar. Says she, “I have been in art since my childhood and working on sculptures for more than 32 years. I make sculptures in bronze, steel and fibre material. I love to play around human figures and specialise in merging figures.`` She has worked on a day to day life concepts such as family, relationships and societal issues. She also highlights through here art relevant issues such as rape and mental trauma.
Suparna Arora, a resident of Civil Lines, North Delhi, whose ceramic works are displayed at the gallery says, “I am working with clay for the last 27 years. Most of my ideas come from the streets of India and I don't like to be bound to some theme work so I also love to thoroughly mix everything.”
An art exhibition will remain open till April 19, 2022. From 11;00 am to 6; 00 pm. Sunday closed.
