The Greek philosopher, Plato, had claimed that the best sort of attractiveness lies not in the sorts of the actual earth but in geometry. Nowhere is this far more seen than in abstract artwork. An Intersection of The Timeless Minute, an exhibition arranged by Aakriti Art Gallery, noticed six artists condense variety into good interplays of styles and color. Avadhesh Yadav balances subtlety of colours with delicate, minimal styles in watercolours that evoke a perception of wonder, specially in Desert (picture, leading) in which the artist captures both equally the vastness of the sandy landscape and the minuteness of the particles that comprise it using several shades and washes of brown.

Akhilesh’s operates see the world in primitive styles akin to cave paintings and hieroglyphic tablets. The shapes feel ever-evolving, a selection of beginnings with no finishes. His work offers a experience of being still left unfinished and, nevertheless, it does not seem incomplete. Sunil De’s acrylics defy fixity as well alternatively, each and every of them attracts the viewer into a cavernous depth of rioting colors and styles exactly where indicating gets to be elusive, even pointless (photograph, center).

Vikram, on the other hand, plays with colour. Smearing it, coating the paper with it, scratching at its surface area to reveal hidden designs beneath. Like a detective unearthing a fingerprint hiding in simple sight, he delivers to light distinctive patterns that trace at a divided, bloody globe with fleeting times of tranquility to be uncovered amidst nature. Yogendra Tripathi finds respite in character also — but this is a severe, unforgiving landscape exactly where beauty is stark and negligible (photo, base).

Samir Aich, as is his wont, refuses to be tied down by definitive ideas of abstraction. There is turmoil, a feeling of disaster looming and human struggling — contorted bodies, severed and bandaged limbs lie strewn — but the source of these problems is summary, shifting and over and above the grasp of the viewer.
