Artworks galore at KCP fair

There are paintings, sculptures, photographs and patterns, but it is difficult to tell which is better than the other.

Colourful artworks have engulfed the walls and spaces of the gallery at Karnataka Chitrakala Parishath (KCP), as the annual art exhibition kicked off on Tuesday.

Over 100 different artworks, including graphics and visual arts, have been put on display by the final-year graduate and postgraduate students of the institution.

“We give them complete freedom with respect to everything – from thought, expression, raw materials and the like. As faculty, we guide the students on style and media, but the concepts and ideas are entirely theirs,” said K S Appaiah, Professor, Department of Painting, KCP.

Said Nilisha Khanna, a final-year student of MA Graphics who used the idea of a bird as a metaphor: “These concepts emerged on different occasions, some on the spot and some over time. I have used the concept of a bird and how notions have changed for us and for our ancestors. The modern world associated itself with kingfishers and twitter birds unlike cuckoos and sparrows more prevalent before."

Another student has used a bench and chair concept, to remember his school days, along with rear-view mirrors depicting nostalgia.

There will be a best pick from each category and a total of eight prizes will be given for various works.

“I am extremely amused at some of the works this time. It tells you how much new concepts have evolved over the years and even the faculty is extremely happy with most works,” said D K Chowta, General Secretary, KCP.The exhibition is on till March 11.
