Kala Ghoda Association Presents ‘Maithili’ Exhibition Celebrating Women Artists

This show was inaugurated on 27th November 2023 by Brinda Miller(KGA Chairperson & an eminent artist)

The exhibition features the works of five talented women artists: Pratibha Wagh, Jyotsna Sonavane, Rekha Bhiwandikar, Mita Vora, Paneri Bhiva Punekar. Each artist brings a unique perspective and style to the showcase, making it a diverse and vibrant collection.

The show is curated by Varsha Karale

Pratibha Wagh’s Enchanting Canvases

An artist of any discipline first sees the idea manifest in his mind and then begins his expression of it. Mrs. Pratibha Wagh celebrates nature in her mind before giving it a form to be enjoyed by its beholders. Her paintings of nature are resplendent with the rich influences of Madhubani, Chitrakathi and Indian miniature paintings. The resultant style inherently demands a rather difficult merger of detailing and precision while the size of her canvas doesn’t allow her the liberty of being artistically vague, it does insist upon sharp precision of strokes that are at once bold and light. Mrs. Wagh manages this tightrope walk with consummate ease. Her paintings give you a distinctly joyous experience of a dreamlike state, and their old world. The message in her paintings is loud and clear. Unless man loves and respects  nature, he has no right to its beauty and benevolence.

Jyotsna Sonavane: A Journey Inward

Jyotsna Sonavane describes her artistic journey as an inward exploration for outward expressions. Her abstract language of lines and colors captures the evolving compositions that gain new meanings over time. Inspired by nature, Sonavane’s paintings mimic the organic beauty of stone, petrified wood, and flowing rainwater. The emotional depth of her work is conveyed through the movement of brushwork and layered colors, creating a rich history within each piece.

Rekha Bhivandikar: Exploring Memories Through Art

Rekha Bhivandikar, a contemporary artist, presents ‘Memories,’ an exhibition that reflects her deep admiration for memories. Having grown up in a small village, Wada, Bhivandikar’s journey as a commercial artist includes 26 group exhibitions throughout India. Her recent focus involves exploring the similarities and differences between Maharashtra Lok Kala-Warli and Bihar-Madhubani, creating a fusion of these traditional art forms.

Mita Vora: Passionate Tigers on Canvas

Mita Vora’s art is centered around the majestic tiger, symbolizing physical strength, vitality, and health. Through the use of ink and palette knife on canvas, Vora skillfully brings these powerful creatures to life. Her commendable and brilliant style involves a universal mix of raw and bold layers of colors, reflecting subtle values and positive attributes associated with the tiger.

Paneri Bhiva Punekar: Transcendence of Banaras

Paneri Bhiva Punekar’s series, ‘Transcendence of Banaras,’ is a thematic conceptualization of the religious sanctity, glory, and divine fervor associated with the holy city of Varanasi. Using poster colors on paper in her unique style, Punekar’s works artistically adorn various pieces with ethnic and exquisite hues, capturing the spirituality prevalent in the temples, shrines, and continuous chanting at the Ghats.

The ‘Maithili’ exhibition is a celebration of the divine energy inherent in women, transferred onto rich, vibrant canvases that aim to invoke the same energy in the viewers. The participating artists bring years of experience and hard work to this showcase, making it a must-visit for art enthusiasts and the general public alike.

“Matsyangan: Fusion of Realism and Fantasy”

The Jahangir Art Gallery is set to host an exquisite exhibition of paintings by acclaimed artist Chandrashekhar Shravan Kumavat. Titled “Matsyangan: The Symbol of Love,” this event promises to be a beautiful art experience for enthusiasts and collectors alike.

Over the past two decades, the influence of abstract art styles has waned, making way for a resurgence of figurative art forms. This shift has not only captivated artists but also art aficionados and collectors, particularly in the realm of realistic portrayals. Chandrashekhar Kumavat, hailing from Pune, stands as a prime example of an artist who has carved out a niche for himself through his unique art style.

Having received numerous awards and accolades since his student days, Kumavat’s distinctive approach has garnered attention on both national and international stages. His artistry, characterized by a blend of pen strokes, dots, lines, and bold black circles, is delicately woven into a vivid tapestry of experiences.

At the heart of his narrative lies the story of Matsyagandha and her lover, brought to life through intricate details and a dreamlike backdrop. Kumavat’s mastery lies in striking a harmonious balance between materialism and fantasy, exemplified by the simplicity of his central characters against the backdrop of water ripples and aquatic imagery.

While proficient in acrylic on canvas and ink on paper, Kumavat has pioneered a unique style in line art, favoring suggestive forms over realistic representation. The interplay of various drawing forms, content, and technique culminates in a breathtaking body of work.

In addition to his artistic pursuits, Chandrashekhar Shravan Kumavat also imparts his knowledge and expertise as a lecturer at Abhinav Kala Mahavidyalaya in Pune. In his own words, “A spontaneous expression of feelings through a certain medium can be called ART.” Kumavat draws parallels between an artist’s creative process and the natural world, emphasizing the significance of elements such as Light, Color, Space, Rhythm, and Movement. Each stroke of the brush or pen not only conveys the artist’s ideas but also reflects their inner state to the external world, contributing to the evolution of cultural perspectives.
