About the exhibition:in this group show ‘Green Palette’ is a revival of freshness of Romanticism. As its name suggests, it is about taking the world back into nature holding on the social reality as well. The artists involved in this exhibition have creations depicting man’s mystic relationship with nature. There is also a revolutionary energy flowing in Green Palette which deliberately transforms our perception of the world. Like, artist Ashok Hinge, who uses natural and man-made elements in nature to simplify the concept of completeness of world around us. Nature is a source of subject and image; it’s a refuge from the artificial constructs of civilization. Green Palette aims at retrieving clean and green environment world wide. Every artists participating in this exhibition contributes in one form or the other in increasing Environmental awareness and spreading greener. It would be a great delight to feel and experience the revival of Romanticism in art after a long time on the group show ‘Green Palette’ and also be a part of spreading the message- Gear up to make Globe Green again.
About the artist’s work and artist:
Nitin Vinchure displays classic interpretation of all creations in this Universe with his imagination. He logical explains his imagination cum interpretation saying that, before any creation, there was only the Mahashunya or Nix. But Shakti or Sheerenrgy existed ...
Vijai Jain creations are perfect examples of symbolic creations. For him Solar System, Earth, Soil, Water, Birds, trees and his alkies’- the human beings, all the gleans are symbols surrounding us. Life proceeds enjoying the process of decoding the meaning these gleans...
Madhav Joshi desires to express the "inexpressible"--the infinite--through the available resources of colors and forms. He too is completely awed by nature. He applauds the Nature’s capacity as a unified whole. The realistic creations are devoid of scientific or rationalist associations.
Vikas Malhara. I feel his statement suggests that nothing is static and permanently dominant in Life. For him Life is a kaleidoscope of happiness and sorrow, of brightness and darkness, of the beautiful and the ugly, of the form and the formless, of the seen and the unseen. They interplay, dominate by turns, changing patterns and meanings along the way.
Raju Baviskar, social realism is subordinate to imaginative suggestion, and most importantly the ideals suggested by his creations based on honest, hard working villager, their struggle round the clock for survival all these have simplicity and innocence, drawn with deep thinking of the reflections that he has seen in their eyes and expressions on their faces. The bodies are worn out and yet have hopes of something good to happen.
Ashok Hinge manages at his best to unify symbolism and realism. His creations are inspired by the God-made and Man-made elements, which is an attempt by the artist to metaphorically simplify the universe. For him man-made creations like temples as shown in ‘Surya Mandir’ is as important as lush green surroundings, mystical landscapes.
The artist lives and works in Mumbai.
