Aelay Laxman portrays the spiritual robustness of the Telangana villagers, his own people and their tenacious resistance against the relentless incursion of modernity in their brittle lives that they neither appreciate nor stand to benefit from. The statuesque figures of these men and women, contorted within their own setting, seems to convey Aelay's acute dismay at the steady marginalization of the values and sentiments cherished by these simple folk.
Amit was born in Hooghly Chinsurah (West Bengal) in 1973. Even as a child his first love was art. It was the primary objective of his life. The scintillating, pristine, rustic beauty of rural Bengal inspired him to take the brush at a very tender age. Amit speaks of his style as ¦a new semi-realistic technique of texturing with the realistic play of light and shade." Amit carefully blends the two forms of ancient Indian art and individualizes his innovative style. In a nut shell, his paintings let the viewer re-examine the threshold between illusion and reality, between waking and dreaming.
Rachana has many solo shows to her credit and has participated in art camps in India and abroad. Her imagery is often treated with a strong 'photo-realistic' rendering; appear cheerful, uncomplicated and purely painted with adroit sense and contemplation. Having been reluctant to irony, despondency, ingenuity; her paintings evoke joy of the present moment that she lives in. Her works are the visual palette for speaking to the world about the unspeakable. The ability to communicate through the visual senses has been around since the beginning of human kind and will continue as long as our species exists.
Ramesh Gorjala's dense drawings on canvas are full of colors, figures and stories, mainly from Indian mythology, such as Hanuman, Shiva and Vishnu. A modern take on the famed Kalamkari tradition, his signature style of blending texts with images lends his canvas an enchanting visual appeal.
T. Vaikuntam, born in Karimnagar District of Andhra Pradesh in 1942, he completed his Diploma in Painting from the College of Fine Arts and Architecture, Hyderabad in 1970. He received a fellowship from Andhra Pradesh Lalit Kala Academy to study painting and print making at the M.S. University at Baroda from 1971 to 1972. Vaikuntam is specifically known for his very vibrant paintings of seductive ideal 'Telangana Woman', ornately dressed and magnificently distorted with flow of lines. Vaikuntam employs textile prototypes and jewellery embellishments to give life to his two dimensional imageries.
Each of these five artistes has developed their unique language of expressions and thematic preferences. Nonetheless, between them, they bring out the protean faces of life on their canvas in ways that often appear exaggerated or grotesque but never lacking in empathy.
