An exhibition of Photographs by Kabeer Ramesh

Photo artist Kabeer Ramesh offers yet another solo exhibition titled ‘Every Picture has a story…’, the previous being ‘Frozen in Time’, which was held at the prestigious Jehangir Art Gallery, Mumbai.  ‘Every Picture has a story…’,  exhibited at the ‘Nitya Artists Centre’, Prabhadevi, from 1st May, 2024 onwards, grapples with, as the title suggests, human endeavours/stories in diverse and vivid contexts; these are photo-stories of promises and perils of being human: the glories and triumphs memorialised in monuments are juxtaposed with toiling workers in busy bazaar streets of Kolkata; the symbols of towering human achievements – the world famous the Taj Mahal and London Bridge – co-habit with the unease of forlorn ruins of the dilapidated and discarded. Interestingly, the idea of loners is presented in creatively imagined forms – the ‘lone stone’ of Shillong relentlessly standing up to vagaries of waters, and the unending wait of birds in summer of Rajasthan. The trees presented in Kabeer Ramesh’s work too depict the diverse meaning universe: the erratic desires of the colonising human, and the falling humanity supported by dried branches of the uprooted. The exhibition also offers noteworthy studies in perspective – the broad-ways and the marvel of the Howrah bridge – what appears as meeting may be illusive, and what is near maybe far.  The monuments in Kabeer’s work present an enigma: the famous Notre Dame cathedral in Paris lost its glorious treasures to the leaps of fire; so is the photograph of statue outside the Buckingham Palace, glorious yet stoic.

Kabeer Ramesh’s photographic imagery thus represents the indomitable human spirit, and also cautions against the unreasonable, erratic human desire to colonize. Importantly his works show that all human boundaries, all boundaries, are illusive,  porous and imaginary. One could easily cross over the meaning universe and find multiple meanings through acts and ways of seeing and looking, in varied times and spaces.

Legendary photojournalist Mukesh Parpiani’s need to chronicle the unusual began at a very young age when he first began to help his brother. His elder brother who was fascinated by photography, had a darkroom at home, and Mukesh used to wash his prints. Gradually, he began to work towards achieving this dream. He enrolled at the Pillai School of Photography (1969-1970), after which, he worked in wedding and travel photography. During this brief stint, he realised that his city has so many intermingled narratives to offer, whose ever-evolving nature is simply waiting to be chronicled.

In 1981, Russi Karanjia, the Editor of The Daily, a morning newspaper in Bombay, offered him a job as their photographer.At The Daily, Parpiani photographed many political leaders and celebrities. Due to this, he became a familiar name in the journalism fraternity. Viveck Goenka, the Chairman and Managing Director of The Indian Express, who had been following Parpiani’s work and career, saw potential in his vision. Eventually, he decided to recruit Parpiani as the photo editor of The Indian Express’ seventeen editions. During his time there, he covered historical events of significance nationally and internationally.Mid-Day, an afternoon tabloid, who noticed Parpiani’s work as a photojournalist and editor, decided to offer him a job as the photo editor. It was the beginning of many things – the turn of the century as well as the tectonic shift of photographic technologies. Tariq Ansari, the Managing Director of the newspaper, gave Parpiani the liberty to develop the department as he needed. Parpiani, upon recognising the dawn of DSLRs, requested Ansari to acquire them for the photo department. Under his tutelage, many young individuals became renowned documentary photographers and photojournalists.

Parpiani curated his first photo exhibition in March 1989 at Piramal Art Gallery of NCPA. His penchant for curating photography exhibition gave him the opportunity to continue even after his retirement at the age of 58.

In 2009, Khushroo Suntook, Chairman of the National Centre for the Performing Arts (NCPA), offered him to head the Piramal Art Gallery. Suntook had been familiar with Parpiani’s work and entrusted him with the running of the gallery. For 14 years, Parpiani has single-handedly nurtured and educated the next generation of photographers. He has organised over 250 talks, workshops, exhibitions, and seminars to disseminate photography.

Parpiani has touched countless lives with his photographs while reforming countless more as a mentor. His strengths and humanity lie in his ability to mould the way we perceive Bombay, while his sensitivity and perceptiveness conquer the hearts of those fortunate individuals who have, knowingly or coincidentally, crossed paths with him.

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.
