At the Chandigarh Lalit Kala Akademi\'s annual art exhibition, which is being held in three categories - student, professional and invited, as many as one hundred works of art are ready to delight the senses at the rolex replica watches Sobha Singh Art Gallery, Punjab Kala Bhawan.
The first that draws our attention is an installation by Charanjit Singh Dhiman - a golden broom with a sword handle. Just when we decipher what it aims to connote, our eyes go to the placard - titled as Ultimatum! A 72" by 54" acrylic on canvas
portrait by Narinder Mour titled, Portrait of Darkness, hangs right behind the installation. A figurative abstract painting titled No Lips by Ashok Das complements both the installation and the portrait. Also, a photograph of numerous fingers, titled Democracy, only propels the flow of thoughts.
As one progresses through the romantic scenic landscape photographs in tungsten and red sepia tones by Bhupinder Brar to Sonali Garg\'s quirky cartoon sketch work on rotis, the mood mellows. However, Madan Lal\'s Urban Melange and Viney Vadhera\'s Power, both acrylic on canvas, set the progressive thoughts back in motion. While Madan Lal weaves the elements of society and its functioning in a contemporary figurative replica watches uk replica watches abstract to reflect on the existing social set-up, Viney, the mask fake watches replique montreman, paints the portrait of a politician. "I have painted the politician of today, who does three major things - he entertains the masses, he lures them with polite words and he dupes them. This is why in my painting, one politician is holding flowers in his hand while the other one is masked as a crow who steals food from the masses," says Viney. Bheem Malhotra\'s water colour painting, titled Lost in the Past VI, represents grey in a rather intense fashion as he uses pigeons against the black and white backdrop of a dilapidated building.
The student category has more of etching and aquatint paintings by various artists, including Rahul Dhiman, Vikas, Neha Chawla, Amandeep Kaur and Simranjot Kaur, among others
