HELP - Fundraiser Sale - ANDOLAN- Solo show by Tathi Premchand

 

Artist: Tathi Premchand

ANDOLAN, a movement initiated to praise women and her ultimate strong persona, her paramount insight and her superlative forbearance. Andolan steps forward to clamor against pseudo feminism, causing much defilement to women rather than hale. “combating and competing has become so crucial to genders that they have lost their own values and prominence. Woman is becoming more like man, abandoning her vibrance. A feminine with moustache.”-said Tathi premchand.

The aura created by Premchand’s vision stimulates every sense of living. His works has capacity to raise questions as well as to make any person stunned by giving untold answers. The works laid on sheets are much of what comes from his subconscious rather than pre planned methods. When asked how he configure and manage to create such depth in the paintings? He answered “I observe, sketch twice a day, sense my expressions and then collaborate.”

Tathi Premchand’s works holds variance according to the dissemination of his dialect. He invests all what is necessary to display the deliberation. From forms to figures, erotic to static, moods to moments the paintings are a combination of what we come across every day. Inspired by his town city and people living there, the drawings are more often black and white,” I’ve always been curious how we see colors through our lens but dreams and visuals going in the mind are inevitably black and white, on the contrary I want people to fill up colors according to their moods and diurnal experiences” he says. The paintings and sketches hold discernment of human life, struggles, desires and dualities of wit that we behold inside.

The series of 70 works being processed since 2013 drives our attention towards the way how humans have progressed and are ravelled in their own aspirations, sovereignty and aesthetics. How the animals dwelling inside each of us is silently waiting for their prey. “we all are animals inside, always craving for more. Whether it is food, sexual eagerness, or wants to excel over others, we always expect for more.” The artist affirms.

Poster - Image 2021- Online Diplay 


In most of Tathi Premchand’s presentation women plays a vital role. He anticipates women as a preserver, a collector while a male as a ravager. Though both contributes equal to society, women many a times have to undergo a bulldoze pressure of mimicking the image of male as well. He repudiates the thought of women being frail but consider her powerful, a soul who is the creator, creator of human, house, love, affection and rejoice.
From eternity man has forged a sphere where women are wielded according to his comfort, and in retribution women is shaping herself like male, vying him to be self-sustained which eventually compressing her by carrying all the responsibilities on her supple shoulders. “I feel women is a combination of energies, she is synergy, but in order to beat man, that too due to his own vile practices, she is being misused.” The artist said.


Not being a hoax feminist, Tathi Premchand always believes in equality of genders, but as in reality and norms set by masculine dominant society women have to encounter challenges and pronouncements. If she becomes competitive enough to face them, she’s being condemned. Her efforts and endeavours are never appreciated, but always judged and doubted. “I admire and acknowledge how courageously women compete the foul boundations set by men.” Added Premchand. The physiological and psychological characteristics of man and woman created by extramundane powers holds their own purposes and motives. Both contribute well towards living, competing each other or penetrating into other’s sphere of traits may create indecent and foul results. Hence, respecting other’s freedom and persona will bring a vital change in further future.

Man and woman together fabricate the world, which invokes the sense of living. Women being much sensual, men are considered more attractive and alluring according to Tathi Premchand, adding on examples like Lion, Peacock, Cock etc. Accepting male’s delightful appeal women always get fascinated, which provokes her to embellish and adorn the ways she looks. Male of the contrary need no such extra enhancements for his appeal.


Lust is what every human craves for and in many of the paintings that libido can be seen in form of animals and their hunger. Animals do not care about moral sense when it comes to fulfil their starvation. Likewise, humans are a cluster of their unrevealed desires. They are not much concerned about matters and morals when it comes to attain their wishes.

Andolan, a gesture started to untangle the dubiety of stubborn society with minimal drawings that are gratifying to view and provoke us to think down from the top surface. The artist profess that his paintings and works are not just to be glance and to be showcased but to disclose his real nous, that may compel the living to revitalize.


As we get conscious about the paintings and understand them, we figure out that every painting has its own value and sense of representation. The artist is making us aware of dark side by depicting them in different temperaments. Using ink as a medium, Premchand manifests that our lives are too like ink, dark, fluid but when used correctly every stroke laid can covey a significant knowledge.

“my paintings are better than sex.” A quotation remarked by Tathi premchand, signifies that his paintings are pleasure to experience, provides great impact on thinking and you will always be keen to encounter more. Nature, forms, colours and characters modifies him with every stroke laid. Observing the psyche and understanding how every soul’s desires are different yet have same aspirations.

Pause 1 and Pause 2. Different for other you can pause the show - Heena Shaikh

Nippon  Gallery presents the show " PAUSE" which is curated by Heena Shaikh and Nippon contemporary  is the creator of new era for young artists in Mumbai and Online Viewing platform now active as leading in India. For me as Heena Shaikh Artist is one of the biggest challenges that we all faced in recent times is the change of work ethic and methods in the situation these days. As everyone did go through this challenge over this past year, everyone tried to make the best of it. The show ‘’Pause’’ represents that fruitful result of the changes we witnessed through artist’s point of view. Conversations and all the process changed to online, in a blink of an eye. In these times, our goal was to gather artists from different places from India and bring all their different art styles together for all the people to see. The enthusiastic contribution by all the artists made it possible to put a great show online for everyone to see. With a number of different of art styles and works, the plan of having one online show split into two ‘’Pause 1 and Pause 2.’’ This exhibition offers works by 19 young artists who suggest and focuses on the subjects who we are facing or deals with it in the everyday lives that we hardly observe. Adapting to this new era of gallery and bringing people together has been a wonderful and intriguing project to work on in this lockdown period.


Artist:  Prashant Patil, Rohan Khuntale, Tufan Pramanik, Anurag Paul, Kajal Kashyap, Supriyo Karmakar, Ashwam Salokhe, Chetan Shetti, Sarika Kumari, Uttam Sajane, Ami Patel, Mahdieh Azizirad, Pratibha Sarkar, Vikram Marathe, Rachita Dutta, Suman Das, Amit Kalla, Ramchandra Pokale, Yash Pal.   

Artist : Prashant Patil - Santiniketan -Kolkata / Right image - Recent works 


Artist: Prashant Patil - Santiniketan Kolkata

Currently Prashant Patil working at Santiniketan (West Bengal). Santiniketan is surrounded by small Santhali villages, where the Santhals continue to live a traditional lifestyle. They make their own mud houses with unique interior structure and arrangements expressing their aesthetic sense. Those things enchanted me.

Drawing, Painting, Photography and Installation. I was interested in collecting objects, mostly from streets and footpaths in rural villages. The present condition of an object also provides means to peep into its history, its riches and desertion. I was drawn to the objects which were engulfed by cobwebs. These cobwebs not only depicted the present condition of the object but also the past it experienced and this inspired me to draw in a 3d space.

The idea of making drawings in the form of cobwebs, changed my art practice entirely. It allowed me to elevate my artworks from paper surface drawing to a more occupying physical space. I started working with the glue gun to create 3D drawing and used a spotlight to project its shadow on the walls of a dark room. By claiming three-dimensional space I was able to let the shadows have a dialogue with the empty wall. This subtle interaction of fragile web on a solid and hard surface, expresses temporariness of existence. Lingering shadows on the wall present themselves as a strong medium in itself, their presence gives viewers a chance to wonder upon true existence (reality) and mere illusion of it.

 

Artist: Uttam Sajane / Recent works

Artist: Uttam Sajane – Maharashtra

 

Uttam Sajane paint to experience the world within me and it is my meditation where I am searching for myself through lines. It is sublime feeling that affects me very deeply. We always use our logical mind every time. I want to say accept LINES AS A LINES; COLORS AS A COLORS AND DOTS AS A DOTS. Do not ask question because there is no explanation. Over the years painting helped me to quiet my mind, find my peace and connected again with inner itself. I am compelled by my emotions.

 

Artist with recent works Amit Kalla

Artist: Amit Kalla – Rajasthan,

Paul Klee the master painter gives prominence to the creative journey of an artist, which he calls becoming, it has plenty of meaning in language of opinion. Indian writer Nirmal Verma suggests the conception of the term “experiencing” which again designate the indigenise idiom “yatra”—journey, certainly larger then “experience” there is a sense of endlessness, which denotes the expression of process. Indian abstract master Prabhakar kolte consider him under the adoration of the same thought. during these days, due to long lockdown, this is the first time when am staying so elongate in my studio, which absolutely a integral part of my home, I am very much unwavering and very much stabled due to persistently surrounding with colour, canvas and other art material Infect all along with lots and lots of catalogues and reference books which certainly a great bless for me, having the benefit of such companionship. Meanwhile I am firm in my own creative breathing space which undoubtedly a kind of complete world for me, providing the enhance scope in such space where I deeply realise and contemplate to being with the self in actual.

 

Artist Vikaram Marathe - Righside recent works in Pause show - Nippon

Artist: Vikram Marathe - Pune

Rust painting begins in 1994. I was a great follower of the artist late Prabhakar Barwe. After reading his book ‘Kora Canvas’ (Blank Canvas), I started writing him letters about my thoughts, questions about art. Also, I asked him about his journey in the field of art. In one of his replies, I learned that in his early carrier he has experimented with various materials. I also wanted to explore different mediums. While looking at the stains of rust on the workshop floor, I started to work on rust as a medium. Prabhakar Barwe encouraged me with his blessings.

Somehow I stopped working in this media but again started to work in rust from 2014. I have exhibited them in my past shows. I feel that the stains of the rust are the frozen moments of time and my imagery is based on the objects such as horoscope, manuscripts which holds time or a period within them. I am working as a museum curator, so I handle such antiquities every day which has started reflecting in my work.

They are going to visual portray themselves, as well as their everyday life, explore and express with feminine perspective through their visual poem.


Artist: Akshika Monga

Akshita Monga, currently studying Classical Fine Art in Barcelona. I feel strongly about having a strong feminine voice and positive identification of the naked female body, because we all know its BEAUTIFUL but the sexual objectification of it has made it hide behind covers. Through my work I try to study this beautiful creation, and empower it in my own voice of art. My work spans across various media (Digital, Mix Media & Traditional), I’m constantly experimenting with different styles & techniques, to expand my vocabulary of the arts. Very passionate and an avid learner, I aspire to be a well-taught artist and I’m constantly working towards this goal.

Recent works by Malavika Reddy


Malavika Reddy did her BFA from MS University, Baroda. Malavika said that nature is a manifestation of a power beyond our own understanding and we find great power in being able to express herself when she paints or draw elements of nature. Her point of view life being expressed through Expression. There is also the undeniable aspect of withering and death, an end but not a full stop, the beginning of a fresh start. She said women have struggle to be acknowledged or respected in a society that more often than not doesn't see their contribution and deeper essence, her presence, like nature is undeniable.

Recent works by Debosmita Samanta 

Debosmita Samanta, completed her MFA from S.N school of Arts and communication, Hyderabad Central University and BFA from College of Art and Design, Burdwan University. She could probably find a place in the fragile spaces between fiction and autobiography memories and personal experiences are the bedrock of her paintings. Memories, love, personal mythology, family history interpretation of self-psychology yolk together her works inspiration and it's thematic scheme. The images in her paintings serve as dual metaphors that are attuned to historical importance and documentation of certain incidents or real-life stories. All the myriad images formed that is perhaps lying dormant in our deep experiential memory are represented by the images in her paintings. The psychological and emotional aspects of a woman's life, her transitional identity and the state of a perplexed existence are reflected in her art works.

Recent works by Pooja Kukadiya


Pooja kukadiya's is portrayed - when the river flows, it water doesn't dwell into the thoughts of meeting the ocean, it simply flows. This is exactly what Pooja did. She flowed she accept the truth she became the truth. Pooja like to paint wall art and breathe life into it by weaving and creating stories and performances around it. As a visual artist, she deeply believes in the power of surreal living. She feel that she has a home, a refuge , a place of work and worship in her mind and there she truly feel alive and give birth to things , people call 'art' explore her wall art and her interaction with it, in the visual poem called 'Lost' and meet and know her through Rahasya.




Rucha Kulkarni is completed her MFA from MS University Baroda, and BFA from university of Pune. She worked on the traditional Maharashtrian hand stitched baby quilt. 'The baby quilt, (Dupate). One day during community art project Quilt culture, she was working with Godhari quilters and it generally started discussing about siblings one young women told about her six dead sisters and the practice of female feticide in her neighborhood shaken to the core, she asked her , why she isn't blaming her parents for it  - how could she complain, when she has still alive? They kept her alive where as six of her sisters didn't make it out of the womb. She said it and continue making baby quilt.

Last but not the least, we urge art lovers and viewers to support the female expression and their views. The constant struggle in this particular society, men rule the roost and women have low status and few rights. the female artists are expressing that women don’t want flowers and poems. They want to live and exists as equals in the male society. They want love and respect. They are narrating themselves as examples. 

It would be our pleasure to catch you all in this show.  Nippon art gallery is highly obliged to welcome you all. Kindly visit our website and show your interest in magical artworks by young superb artists and make this show successful.

67th National Film Awards: Raj Pritam More win Best Debut Director

Raj More 



Under the Banner of PP Cine Production Mumbai and Laal tippafilms , Movie Khisa is Produced by Santosh Maithani and Raj More.The film has been shot at  Akola ( Vidarbha).  



The short film is about the loss of innocence that reflects the harsh reality of today's polarized times.

Even after becoming a successful painter, my primary interest was filmmaking, says Raj More

More told  that he was delighted about winning the coveted award. "Every filmmaker wishes to win a National Award," he said.

The filmmaker, a respected contemporary visual artist, said the award has given him a lot of confidence. "This was my first film and I had invested the past two years in it.

I was a new, and they were experienced technicians, but still, they showed confidence in me and backed me all the way.



This announcement couldn't have come at a better time for More,  as he is planning to pitch his next feature film script to producers. "This National Award can make the road ahead a little smoother for someone like me who has no background in filmmaking. Because when you get the tag of 'National Award-winning director' people welcome you and are more willing to listen to your script narrations."

Khisa is about a Class 4 student who decides to get a large pocket stitched on his school shirt. He is proud of his pocket because it sets him apart from the rest of the schoolchildren. But his seemingly innocent action has far-reaching political implications for the adults of his village.

Khisa bring another glory in new year 2021.
