Venice in Hyderabad by Surya Prakash at Kalakriti Art Gallery
Suryaprakash for years is known for his pristine nature landscape paintings that have established him with a designated signature. By painting the most ubiquitous aspects of nature such as bare tree trunks, dense forests, weeds, wild flowers, pools of rain water, reflections of the sky and the wild grass elements of utmost simplicity, gives to the aesthetics of his art a new visual play made possible by creative and emotional feel.
Kalakriti Art Gallery is happy to introduce his recent works on VENICE, a romantic and dream city. This new series of works, on canvas, as well on paper in Acrylic medium come as a surprise, moving away to represent and render one of the most vibrant cities in Italy.
This marks a change in his approach, representing and rendering one of the most vibrant floating cities in the world. The limpidity of the water has magical qualities that challenge the artist to capture its myriad moods with shifting shadows of ephemeral light dancing on its evanescent surface together with the reflections of structures, age old, pale, smoky and brownish, standing out as if floating on the shimmering waters alongside boats, gondolas, water bus or vaporetti on the grand canal. Venice is seductive, most sublime, thrilling to the heart, lovely and inspiring.
