Image and Symbol: Painters' Perceptions


Group Show

10th to 24th April
Aakriti Art Gallery

The exhibition displays the figurative works of twenty-one painters of West Bengal who have dealt mainly with human forms and show how the form is transformed or metamorphosed to build up different image-symbol relationships for different artists. The participating artists are Aditya Basak, Asit Mondal, Bratin Khan, Chhatrapati Dutta, Ganesh Pyne, Jaya Ganguly, Jogen Chowdhury, Kanchan Dasgupta, Kartick Chandra Pyne, Manoj Dutta, Manoj Mitra, Prasenjit Sengupta, Priyanka Lahiri, Rajesh Deb, Sagar Bhowmick, Sanat Kar, Sekhar Roy, Sourav Jana, Subrata Gangopadhayay, Suhas Roy and Sunil Das.

Temporal condition casts its shadow on the image-symbol relationship and turns responsible for the paradigm shifts in formal structure of the arts. While commenting on the works of the artists presented in this exhibition we will look back in brief in the state of this paradigm shift of our art during the modern and modernist period.

Through this image-symbol relationship the artist posits his/her vision about the predicament of man and puts forward the human condition in general through fantasy oriented distortion of human figures. The exhibition showcases a profile of the modernist trend of Bengal.
