AMUSING! Indu Tripathi's Love Tree

A painting exhibition titled Fusion by four young upcoming artists - Daniel Joseph, Deepak Kumar Ambuj, Indu Tripathi and Sangeeta K. Murthy - at studio Vasant in Vasant Vihar this past week, interested many art enthusiasts. As the title suggests, Fusion is a concoction of different styles and cultures. But this art exhibition blended many talents. They were different and yet complemented each other. Among these art college students, Sangeeta K. Murthy, agraduate in arts from Delhi University, exclusively painted a series on different postures of feet. She treated them differently with unique shades of hues like mauve, pink, magenta, yellow and black. Her paintings like Rhythm and Rest were examples of novel ideas that need some maturity in treatment though.Daniel was into a fine blend of human faces and animals submerged with cityscapes. His works had bulls and elephants. They dawn on the city and mingle with the natives. His works titled Ganesha's Vision and Vision of Dwarka were fine examples of his play with man and animals. Deepak Kumaris a product of Jamia Millia Islamia. He is acknowledged among his peers for using male human forms and for raising them to the level of design. His detailed works showed that he is a keenobserver of his surroundings. . His works depicted man's inherent desire of becoming mighty and ruling the world. Hence a tiger formed an integral part of some of his creations. Indu Tripathi, a post-graduate from Agra, blended women and nature quite fantastically. Her women wear headgear of sparrows and play with them with too. Gentle forms in silken, lyrical lines and soft colours are her forte. The works amused as much as they provoked curiosity.
