Catalogue Nectar

  1. 1. νεκταρ
  2. 2. νεκταρ nectar I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately, I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life,To put to rout all that was not life and not when I had come to die, Discover that I had not lived. - Henry David Thoreau
  3. 3. …. dedicated to our parents ….
  4. 4. We are scientists. We try to study, understand and explain the nature around and within us. We try tounderstand why and how life exists. We try to understand the structure of this cosmos and how it works.Nurtured in the environment to think and study things critically, this is the language we have been trainedto talk.But we also worry about what life is and appreciate the beauty, fragility and harmony of this cosmos ofwhich we are a mere speck of dust. At the same time, we try to live in this and be a part of this cosmos tothe maximum.We try to express ourselves out thoroughly, to extract this Nectar and pour it on the blank canvas.We are also artists! -Amritansh Vats YVEZAE
  5. 5. Art is escapism from melancholy to ecstasy. Art and poetry is an expression which is immensely potent toenvision anything to everything. Rhetoric may be challenged and the need of society may lead to reformit, while an art is just sublime, and the society instead ponders to decipher what he always could notmeasure. The palate is the pursuit of happiness for an artist and his stroke embarks the genesis of amasterpiece. Consciousness is the least understood phenomena and it plays with our lives, makes us whowe are. Art juxtaposes this deeply lying mystery, and contemplates through our emotions to express itthrough colours on the canvas, creating a unique description of you. - Amit Kumar Ghosh
  6. 6. He adopted, and then adapted to colours. At times, equations become futile to his reasoning, the whole plethora of occurrences outside the realm of science becomes indescribable, and that dilemma sprouted out the need of colours in his existence. However, art is always subjective and doesn’t reconcile with the objective nature of science but his confusion steers him to work on the coarse sheet. His words may be inadequate to justify his perspective, but no doubt, his work does. You can figure him out as developing his art intrinsically, experimenting and exploring various with a brave heart. Having developed a certain level of sophistication, he took to reading about art reforms and history, which only helped to deepen his understanding of formal art, many of these “isms” which he then found already in his works.Amritansh Vats His interest lies beyond the objects perceivable by our eyes, in a sense to proliferate more out of less. Association of specific colours and figures to some abstract notions may be treated as part of his style. His works range from playful spontaneity to subtlety, pouring out his inner self and philosophies onto the canvas. He founded the CBS Art Club and started the annual open art festival ORIS, with the basic motive of expression via artform. His works are in the personal collection of Prof. Deepak Mathur, Mumbai; Dr. Susan Tase, Mumbai; Ms. Sunita Gaire, New Delhi; Ms Surya Harikrishnan, Manipal and Sir Arnold Wolfendale, England. The vivid use of subtle colours, monochrome and her indigenous artistic intuition amplifies her stroke and lashes of brush. Spontaneity is reflected intricately in her texture of art. In this collection, she has experimented chiefly with impasto and palette knives to explore and develop in diverse styles, her reactions to internal stimuli. Her soul is the sole master of her gallant performance on the canvas. The vibrancy of her heart and brain which is in a continuous innuendo destines out over the stark canvas, and turns it into a spell bounding maze. Her works are in the personal collection of Prof. S. M. Chitre, Mumbai; Mr. Kishore Menon, Mumbai and Sir Arnold Wolfendale, England. Renu Redhu
  7. 7. Wayward couple is they, highly incompatible together yet complementary. They stand on opposite strands but are mutually motivated and inspired. When it comes to art Renu Redhu they synchronise unanimously with minimal level of constraints, and complementarily & bring out itself harmoniously on the canvas. They say ‘opposites attract’ in love and Amritansh Vats YVEZAE love over canvas via whips of brush renders out a perfect union. One can see the tensions and the coalescence of ideas in the jugalbandi!! He is a skylark sculptor who endows the art with an impulsive attitude. He is flamboyant and frolic, with the way he articulates his art. Occasionally his painting emerges out of the hunger to express realism and feelings on canvas. His works can be out of mere pleasure or sheer need of a social message. With no particular style, he experiments with colours but the sting in the tail is the message he wants you to decipher out. Dhruv Ringe His works are basically figurative semi abstract, influenced by human life, mentality and thoughts. He has to still cast his iron as he tends to follow a more traditional approach towards learning art but as of now he mainly portraits faces of the fairer sex with semi abstract objects embedded. He has some works on landscape or real objects also in his quiver. His works can be dealt with understanding of human images and blatant figures. Plawan Das His painting is in the personal collection of Prof. N. Vavliov, Russia. He prefers to paint without any prior thought or pre-decided concept and thus avoids getting influenced before putting any thoughts on canvas. The technique develops as per flow and he tends to cease his work only when his complete thoughts are portrayed on the canvas. The result is always an abstract piece of art which is open for interpretation but he always sees some figures coming out of it which are mere players of the drama withinAmit Seta his mind. Thus, he interprets it as a figurative portrait of a very abstract object – nature and free spirit. He chose the brush for satisfaction and fun to view him in different spheres of life through art. He treats his work as a note of remembrance and a source of great pleasure. - Amit Kumar Ghosh
