One of the citya��s most renowned A�art spaces, Gallery-g, puts together A�an exhibition of work by three of its A�favourite artists. a�?All three of them A�have been with us since the very A�beginning and our relationship A�with them has grown over the A�years.
So it just seemed right that A�we celebrate this occasion through A�them, “says Gita Maini, owner, of A�the latest collections by Om Swamy, A�Buwa Shete and Mohammed A�Osman on display at the gallery. A�The gallery will also inaugurate A�their special corner, the Reading A�Nook, that has rare art-related cof- fee table books donated to the gal- lery by Rani Vijaya, a patron.
Behind the strokes While the works of Om Swamy and A�Mohammed Osman have a strong A�religious element, Buwa Shetea��s A�work explores the nuances of soli- tude and the bond between mother A�and child. Known to have a pen- chant for the female form, Shete A�uses fluidity and bold brush strokes A�in art that is both soothing and A�mysterious.
a�?All of their work is A�very powerful and catching yet A�bright and vibrant,a�? Maini A�explains. Swamya��s collection this A�time, is focused on depicting Lord A�Ganesh. His characteristic bold A�brush strokes and uninhibited use A�of colour come through vividly in A�each of the vertical pieces. A�Canvas inspiration Osman also explores religion, but A�is more specific, as he depicts vari- ous elements of the traditional A�kole basava ritual in which the A�sanctimonious bull is led from A�house to house of the townsfolk, A�giving out blessings.
In Osmana��s A�depiction, the bull is led by A�Radha and Krishna with var- ious other elements subtly A�woven in. Reds, greens and A�blues dominate the can- vas in this colourful tell- ing of an age-old rural A�tradition. A�Till November 15. A�Rs 1 lakh upwards. A�At Lavelle Road. A�Details: 22219275
