On-view art paints refreshing picture of nature, trees

IANS  |  New Delhi 

Canvasses showing how the nature transforms in seasonal landscapes, are currently on view here.

"Seasonal Splendour", a solo show by artist Kishor Sahu, is open at the Triveni Kala Sangam here, and depicts a world away from the blanket of cold the country is wrapped in.

Sahu, a former student of the Indira Kala Sangeet Vishwavidyalaya in Khairagarh, sits freely conversing with the visitors to his show of over 10 paintings.

When asked why he chose the nature, and more specifically trees, for his acrylic works, the 40-year-old artist told IANS that he is a tree-lover.

"Trees, nature are my muse. Even though we don't get to see lush greenery a lot, a simple white flower blooming on a field's periphery, or big trees I can see from windows are enough for me to paint," he explained.

Sahu's works, almost mystically showing tree-lined landscapes, are a melange of colours. Some, he says, represent Shimla's beauty or Rajasthan's pink-orange ambience.

His earlier works were more representational, with each natural element like creepers, branches and falling leaves, standing out. But Sahu's more recent works tend to merge what he sees and experiences, evident in a blend of blurring fog and trees' canopies.

Since he started exhibiting in 2009, Sahu has participated in a number of group shows in Bhopal's Bharat Bhavan, Delhi's IHC and Lalit Kala Akademi, and Beijing's International Art Biennale.

Sahu's works, pleasant to the eye and with a refreshing taste of nature, are open for public viewing till December 31.A
