IAF 2019

It is the age-old question that we all seek the answer to: what is Art?

If the creative process of creating a work of art is too personal and multi-faceted to explain in just a few words, then the perception of it is infinitely more so. Once finished, and in the public eye, the work, in many ways, seems to develop a personality or an identity of its own – one that is exclusive to the eye of the beholder and yet is somehow intrinsically tied to the emotions and experiences of its creator. And there it lives, in perpetual dichotomy – a dual existence that bridges the realms of the artist and the audience.
So, when we ultimately do look at it, what are the different voices that speak to us? How do we see it? And what do we take away from it? Does the artist's intention and thought still ring loud and clear? Or does the materiality of the work, the more tangible aspect of it overpower the experience? And how often does one feed into the other? These are the questions that intrigue us more; and with an eclectic collection of works created by both senior and contemporary artists, that is exactly what we seek answers to.
So go on, tell us, what do you see?

EXPLORING THE UNKNOWN

Our preoccupations with art may be irresolute, but what we see and understand is usually perceived as the truth. And what of the experiences that traverse beyond the scope of visibility and entice other human senses – wherein lie concepts that demand to be visualized; concepts that make their presence felt through the vibrations and harmonies that connect everything around us.We see, hear and feel a potpourri of experiences that propel us into distant realities that make us want to explore the unknown.

C.Douglas, creates works open to multiple interpretations where chaos and creativity coexist in a suspended fluidity and simultaneity, all leaving traces on the torn, collaged and crumpled paper, smoothed by charcoal, crayons and chalk. Vijay Pichumani speaks about his self and body as an art form which transverse into the experiences and feels the dilution of the wholeness, the body into the nature, while Harish talks about underlying philosophies of agriculture and civilization through his work. R Janarthanan, affirms that the human being that is worked in layers are sometimes perceptible to the eye and sometimes not, as it is composed of the same boundless and limitless space that surrounds it and SaravananParasuraman uses metal ball bearings to create geomorphic shapes that invite the touch, a somber chroma, and the creation of 'natural' forms through industrial material lending the sculptures an enduring and vulnerable aspect.

Art Fairs 2017

At a fundamental level, art is received as a static object, removed from the experience of time or flux. And though creative expression holds the key to the doors that illuminate the lessons from the past and the promise of the future, how we experience art is, for the most part, overshadowed by the other more obvious aspects of the art. Whereas time, both the entity that inspired it and the medium that enabled it, is somehow lost within the collective consciousness. C.Douglas, through his works, creates works open to multiple interpretations with passing time and experience, Sanam Narayanan captures the very passage of time – the changes and evolution brought in by the movement of the hands – a feature echoed in Vijay Pichumani's works that elaborate the artist’s long and time consuming processes.
