Vibrant hues

What: Stories have always held a special fascination for the human mind, not in the least for providing escape to alternate realities, where the ‘abstract’ comes on its own and becomes a meaningful entity.  It is this universal art of storytelling that artist Tanu Yadav tries to imbibe in her work, adeptly substituting words with colours to weave threads of stories, progressing from one canvas to another. On display at the exhibition ‘Ethereal Harmony’, the subject matters for her works are universal in their appeal. The works focus on the interaction of individuals with their immediate landscape and prevailing culture, trying to replicate every resulting emotion with a stroke of brush on canvas. Our growing pop culture is an inspiration for Yadav. Her works play with visual ideas and colours, creating images that have many layers of meanings and communicate at various levels.

When: November 1 – 11 (11 am–8 pm)

Where: Triveni Kala Sangam, Mandi House
