New Delhi, Sep 12 (UNI) The inaugural show of 'Vistaar' of Gallery LE, presented by Limited Edition, was an attempt to break the established notions of art and its rigid boundaries.
'Vistaar,'-Where Art Engages With Design- a solo platform for creations of two different fields - art and design, showcased some of the best of creations in art and design by some renowned artists and designers.
Speaking on the occasion yesterday, Ms Aparajita Jain, director of Limited Edition, said, '' Being a multi-dimensional show, Vistaar spreads its wings across all expressions of creativity and art.'' ''Vistaar takes diverse forms of visual arts beyond their restricted domains to place them onto an extended pedestal of exclusive lifestyle seeped in beauty, functionality and luxury,'' said Ms Sushma K Bahl, curator, Vistaar, who put 'Vistaar' as a group show of collaborative art bringing the art and design close to each other.
The evening witnessed some of the best innovations in art and design. Some of the exclusive pieces displayed included- an amazing wall painting in ceramic by legendary Akbar Padamsee and Vineet Kacker, Gopika Nath and Murti Ahuja's stunning embroidered piece framed around in a wood and metal play, eye-catching work by painter Shuvaprasanna, among other creations.
'Vistaar' was an expansion in true sense as it explored new challenges interconnecting art and design.
The assimilation is complementary to each other, opined Alpana Gujral, distinguished jewellery designer. ''Assimilation of art and design is a great combination,'' she said.
''Design is grammar of Art,'' opined Satish Gujral, Padma Vibhusan Award winner artist, who felt art and design go together and creation cannot grow under limitation.
Art cannot grow under restrictions and artists should depict creative representation keeping in mind the faith and sentiments of people, Lalit Kala Akademy Awardee Shuvaprasanna said.
Shuvaprasanna said,'' Every one is free to do what one wants to do but as an artist one should respect other's faith and sentiment.'' On being asked whether art needs controversy to draw public attention, he said controversy entangled in art can do no good to art and the turbulence generated in controversy is short lived.
''Artist is best chooser. He knows what can be shared with people and what not,'' said Bose Krishanamachari, noted painter, adding that the artists too need to be aware of their depictions.
