Art exhibit Rangmay Kshitij showcases the beauty of nature in its full splendour

Lucknow: It is not possible to imagine life without nature. Therefore, taking special care of nature should be the priority of man. Whatever is visible from our point of view is nature itself. Which keeps our life and surface in balance. The one who loves nature always saves and maintains it. He is a bird of loving nature.

A solo exhibition titled “Rangmay Kshitij” of paintings of Kishore Sahu, one of such nature’s paintings, was held on the evening of June 5, Sunday, at the Saraka Art Gallery, Lucknow, in the capital. The exhibition was inaugurated by Padmashree Raj Bisaria, the country’s eminent senior theater artist and theatrical director. The curator of this exhibition is Vandana Sehgal.

The curator of the exhibition, Vandana Sehgal, said that Sahu has nature’s birds. Engagement in landscape, forest, garden, nature-view is visible in his works. His canvases not only bring the forest to life on a grand scale, but also bring out the tiniest of details. He plays with scale in all his canvases. On the one hand, the vast expanse of horizon is captured through the depth of the distance and on the other hand, the details of branches, leaves, butterflies, birds etc. are also preferred. His style is very impressive.

His choice of colors is mainly pastels, but is always associated with bright red, sunset yellow, red pink, emerald green and sky blue and the theme is almost always nature… the trees in the background develop a character. which depends on the wishes of the artist. Sometimes in silhouette and sometimes elaborate with white branches and leaves. The rendering is almost childlike but overall it has the maturity and balance that only a mature artist can portray. One can wander timelessly within Kishore Sahu’s canvases and not want to look far… it’s almost meditative.

Here nature has emerged from the imagination of the painter. Teenagers create landscapes that are inspired by nature. Here teens have their own style and own originality. In his paintings, leaves of different colors, different types of plants, flowers, and branches of different colors attract him.

Coordinator Bhupendra Asthana told that although painter Kishore Sahu is a native of Chhattisgarh, but living in New Delhi for a long time, he is doing creation work. He completed his graduation and post graduation in arts from Khairagarh. He has participated in many group art exhibitions, camps, workshops. Fellowship of Lalit Kala Akademi. He has organized four solo exhibitions so far. And Kishore has also received many awards and honors. There are also collections of his paintings in the country and abroad.

Painter Kishore says that in my works a deep assortment of all the elements of nature can be seen. Dense dense forests, trees and plants etc. All this is a manifestation of my imagination. When I am in the process of painting I can see the full scale of creativity as well as the expression of the emotion and thoughts that arise in nature. I like to work in different mediums like watercolor, oil, acrylic and drawing.

– This exhibition will be available for the viewing of art lovers till July 4, 2022.

Artist Kishore Kumar Sahu has been trained as an artist from Khairagarh. He did his post-graduation in the year 2009. Has received many accolades and awards during his career and has exhibited in India and abroad. He mostly works on Canvas with Acrylics and watercolor and pencil on paper.

Sahu’s preoccupation with nature, landscape, forests, garden, the beings in the naturescape, is visible in his work. His canvases bring alive the wild forest not only at a macro level but also details the minutest. He plays with the scale in all his canvases. On one side, the vast expanse of the horizon is captured through the depth of the distance and on the other hand, one can get immersed in his detailing of the branches, leaves, butterflies, birds etc. The genre is impressionistic with glimpses of Seurat in his rendering of details and the palette has the fieriness of Van Gogh.
His choice of colors is primarily pastel but invariably juxtaposed with bright red, sunset yellow, blush pink, emerald green and sky blue and the subject is almost always the nature… groves of trees in the background that develop a character that the artist aspires it do don…. Sometimes in silhouette and sometimes detailed out with white branches and leaves. This rendering is almost childlike but holistically it has a maturity and balance that only a mature artist can portray.

One can just wander timelessly within his canvases and not want to look away… they are almost meditative.
