Every artist is unique and at Helipad on Heels we truly value creativity in every form. Then how could we miss Anju Kumar’s exhibition that entertained art connoisseurs of the capital this month.
The artworks are all about nature, human emotions, sensibilities and invigorations. The inspiration is well emphasized by the titles of her creations. Matted textures, muted tones and an earthen palette- the display would also include unique and innovative sculptures and pottery pieces, be it vases, urns, lamps and pillar stands.
As elaborate swatches of colour spread across the frame, one enters into the painterly realm of fantasy, imagistic illusion and a dream. It’s like the collage of effects making excellent use of the artist’s compositional skills, putting the viewer’s eye in constant motion as it follows the connective thread that the artist establishes between various elements. Achieving a variously textured quality, the works express a uniquely eviscerated idealization of nature. It is a powerful display of innovations and creativity in vibrant oils, to dreamy acrylics to calm pastels. She speaks the innate language of painted art, being a master in colour, light and composition; the juxtapositions of light and shadow give even a flat expense of colour a vibrant physicality and form.
