Dubai gallery showcases Indian art
Dubai, April 14, 2010
Vindemia Art, Antiques and Collectibles Gallery for the first time has brought together four emerging Indian artists for an exhibition entitled, ‘Painting a Thread’ at the Mall of the Emirates.
The exhibition is running from April 12 to May 23.
The unique exhibition where art and fashion communicate by threading the bridges between art on a painter’s canvas and art on a fashion designer’s fabric will feature artists Manisha Gawde, Gunjan Arora, Alka Raghuvashi and Sridhar Iyer. All four artists will interpret the theme ‘Painting a thread’ in their own way.
“The ‘Painting a Thread’ exhibition is exactly the kind of creative collaboration that perfectly complements the artistic vibe of Aspen Café,” said Holger Schroth, general manager, Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates.
Artist Manisha uses thread-like formations in her paintings.
Gunjan has been practicing thread art, the art form that has been his unique signature style, for the past three years. He has had two solo exhibitions and several group shows to his credit. This special art form has been displayed in various galleries in New York, Paris and New Delhi.
Dr Alka Raghuvanshi is India’s first trained art curator, having trained at the Goldsmith College in London and the Museum of Modern Art in Oxford. Having participated in several international shows, Alka focuses her explorations in this show on textiles using hand-carved and hand-printed wooden blocks.
Shridhar Iyer has been a recipient of major state and national awards in India. His work can be found in major private collections in India and abroad.-TradeArabia News Service
