A reflection of art

The Art Worms presents its 5th season of ‘Reflection’, a group show of paintings, drawings, photographs and sculptures. The basic aim of this exhibition was to encourage budding artists.

Their vision stays focused on geometrical shapes that flourish throughout artworks and brings out the beauty of abstract modern art. The co-founders are also avid art lovers and their passion for art have brought them together to organise such
exhibitions.

The exhibition had various paintings, depicting women, mythological characters, celebrating 100 years of Indian cinema and even women.

Talking to Metrolife, Neha Mukhi, one of the artists in the exhibition whose paintings were dedicated to women, says, “Women in our society have seen and been through a lot. They have always been dominated by the men. So, that is why in my paintings, I have got their lips covered and let their eyes speak their thoughts. Because women are anyway not allowed to speak in our society.”

“And all this comes from my childhood experience because even I have faced challenges as a woman. Even my parents used to say ‘what will you do as a painter’, ladko ke lie hai yeh sab’. But, then I fought them and did what I always wanted to do – become a painter. One should always fight for their right and raise their voices if something goes wrong,” adds Neha.

One of the highlights of the exhibition is a work of a 4 ft x 6 ft on 100 years on Indian cinema. Featuring some of the leading names that the industry has known right from Prithviraj Kapoor, Raj Kapoor, Dilip Kumar, Rajender Kumar to Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and even Jaspal Bhatti - the painting was created by Vijay Kumar.

“I have been working on Bollywood for more than 30 years now. So, it was an apt painting to highlight the achievements of some of the greatest stars in Bollywood. I wanted to show all the big stars - right from the yesteryears to contemporary ones.”
