Different strokes, hues and motifs interpret love and its varied shades in this exhibition. Using a range of techniques and mediums, five artists have painted their own symbols of love as part of an exhibition titled "After One's Own Heart", a Valentine's Day special put together by Kadamb Art.
"Love is present in every corner of this universe and surrounds us in many ways," says Neenu Vij, painter and curator of the show. While the theme is universal and close to the artists' hearts, choosing the works, they say, was a challenge. "I wanted to move away from the clichés, and so selected paintings that were unique in style and treatment," says Vij. For Aatiya Arora, the exhibition is special since it's her first. She has put together huge canvases depicting a young women striking a pose. "I had models pose for me. In these women, I depict my inner self and the freedom that I want myself to be enveloped with," says the Delhi-based artist, who paints on large canvases since "it allows her space for free strokes".
On the other hand, artist Kirti Sarkar's muse is a solitary tree. She uses the symbols of love such as hearts to depict falling leaves, birds and moon, with pink and blue colours creating a sensual effect. Praveen Saini's acrylic-on-paper works use earthy colours to depict men and women in traditional attires in modern settings. Varuni Sinha has used her thumbs and nails to create artwork, which are bright and intricate, with her impression of Radha and Krishna immersed in the joy of togetherness coming across as a visual treat. Ganesh Dey from Kolkata paints a couple in love, oblivious of everything around them, both speaking to each other with their eyes.
