Art inspires life

Art and its various other forms have never been so fully realized as it has now. From the nostalgia inducing paintings of the Indus and Harappa civilization to the raw and stylised textures of modern day works by artists such as Amrita Shergill and MF Hussain, art has reached as Neil Gaiman has often stated  “Golden age” or “utopia” .The form moreover has long moved out of the limits of traditional style of production to the more technical aspect of itself .

Within this context , we look at the exhibition titled “6Th All India Women artists contemporary Art exhibition 2017” held at galleries of Museum of Fine Arts at Panjab University in Chandigarh on Wednesday. Artscapes every year in coordination with Panjab university organises this exhibition to promote and spread the visual arts in its true spirits in India.

Around 1200 artists submitted their works to the exhibition initially out of which 400 were selected at first .Out of these 400 works 111 works by women artists from all over the country were selected to be displayed at the exhibition .Through the works of these artists the exhibition  turned stories into fascinating analysis of artistic practices .

We first encountered a woodcut on paper “Life of Journey “ by Sree Latha Gangarapu  which also won the first prize of  Rs35,000.The painting beautifully expresses the struggles one overcomes in his journey of life and still moves on further with a optimistic attitude .Sree is from Kadapa , Andhra Pradesh and carries a very inspiring story with her. She was married at the age of 18 and she had two kids by 21 .It was after this that her husband  encouraged her to study  further and she continued her studies and  did her Masters from Shanti Niketan. “Art is the picture of one’s mind .Sometimes you cannot communicate everything ,art is your savior at that point,” says Sree Latha who in future wants to set up an art studio in Andhra Pradesh of herself . 

The whole gallery was full of the ambience of art .There were a number of works displayed. All these paintings showed that how we have grown apart  from the naturality of life. — TNS
