Solo Art Exhibition 'Delineation' by Hari Srinivas
Art for me is food for the soul. It encompasses my whole being, saturates the soul. Art inspires, illuminates, encourages, surprises, excites, provokes, calms, elevates emotionally as well as spiritually and connects ladle soul. On seeing my art, if the viewer experiences even one of these emotions, then we connect soul to soul.
As an artist the process of creating the artwork is important to me but I refuse to accept the limitations imposed by rules. I want to work in all styles and delve through many subjects and then draw conclusions at my or-pace.
It is very challenging to create innumerable tones by combining the limited available colors with powers' brushes. I need to draw millions of lines to make my painting come alive!
My subject matter deals with landscapes, portraits as well as stylizations. Light plays a very important role in creating the required drama to draw the viewer in to my world. It could be a rustic village home or then dancing crops against a dramatic skyline. Towering boulders take my breath away and sometimes a coy girl in all her innocence finds her way on to my canvas. I paint with the motive that I finally achieve the result i initially haw as dramatization play a key role in the impact.
In 1983 I passed out with a B.F.A. Art in Applied Arts from Sir, J.J. School of Art, Mumbai, India and JNTU College of Fine Arts, Masab Tank in Hyderabad.
For about 27 years I worked in the field of Communication Design and applied my creative talent in rendering variety of art works for a number of clients which included Graphic design in all its variety contemporary delineations. The common theme in all that I have stood out so far is 'precision'.
Afteryears of designing for varied people I came to the conclusion that I needed an outlet that w-me realize my creative potential in a more satisfying way. Art for me like for many other people became the most meaningful part of life and a source of much fun and relaxation. I hope that my pair serve as a channel of expression and help the viewer understand my inner conflicts, fears, and tensions as well as my aspirations, hopes, and ideals. In the coming years I hope to venture in to every aspect of art and explore all its dimensions. I have just made a small jerney and 0rD hoping that the average viewer in the exhibition comes out, feeling that he has seen something that provokes a reaction. I see a lot of beauty in the mundane things of life and I hope to make people see that as well.
