Paintings are like poetry - Malik

Painting exhibition of Aakar Group of Rajathan Inaugrated by Padmashri Keshav Malik

An exhibition of colourful paintings by Aakar Group Rajasthan was jointly inaugurated by Padmashri Keshav Malik, eminent poet and art critic on Sunday, January 3, 2010 at All India Fine Arts & Crafts Society, 1 Rafi Marg, New Delhi. The exhibition will remain open from 11 am to 7 pm daily till January 9, 2010.

Paintings are like poetry which you have to write with colours and it expresses all your emotions on canvas, said Mr. Malik while releasing the brochure. Ashok Kumar Dixit is working with the artists of Aakar Group such as Dr Anupam Bhatnagar, Dr Amit Rajvanshi for the last eight years. I extend my heartiest congratulations to the artists who have opted AIFFACS for their solo show. They are very expressive in their work, said Mr. Sharma.

My journey from contemporary to abstract helped me to make layers in paintings which help to have perspective effects but this is not sufficient. I would like to increase the number of layers to give more effects, said Mr. Dixit while explaining his paintings to the media. I want to incorporate in my paintings new trends and techniques to give a much broader and wider look to my creations. The world should know that new chapter has been added in the field of art, said the group artists.

Ashok Kumar Dixit is senior lecturer at Hindu College of Education, Sonipat and has organized around over two dozen exhibitions across the country. Dixit shifts from pure abstraction to adding a conclusive form in the guise of a protagonist. The mysterious figure is fused with the mystical colours, giving rise to a totally new idiom, clearly individual is imagining.  The way he balances the form and colours is evidence of his strong knowledge of academics and practical applications.

The paintings of Dr Bhatnagar are the line of demarcation between art and craft is very thin. At times the two seem to encroach upon each other, blurring the line into spaced dots. Puppetry is art which is crafted. And this crafted art, in the hands of Anupam becomes the fine motif of his recent creations. His paintings are on the background of Rajasthan's rural folk and dance.

Dr Rajvanshi is presently an artist teacher in Government College, Ajmer who has passion in his paintings. His horse riders seem to catch the sort of the horse power so well depicted in the curves of lines and the hectic red and orange in the whole series. The blurring of the human and the animal figure hints at the animal force in the human and the humanized energy of the animal. The elongation of the figures suggests the penetrative power and élan force behind all creativity.
