Someone who puts forth a pleasant air in her every moment, Meghna R. Robins, makes it clear that she is here to establish her place in the art world. She is a Class X student of Rajagiri Christu Jayanti Public School, Kakkanad. The 15-year-old girl shows amazing maturity in her paintings. She experiments with almost all mediums and the near-perfection with which she brings forth her works through these mediums is certainly beyond her age.
No wonder then that Four Points by Sheraton at Infopark decided to host its first of a series of exhibitions from Saturday with a show of her collection. They have hosted the event joining the varied cuisines of western coast covering Maharashtra, Goa, Karvar and Kerala with art bringing the feeling of a mini biennale to the campus of the techies.
The exhibition will be held till next Friday from 5 pm to 11 pm. The exploration of Meghna is such that apart from oil, chalk, acrylic, water colour etc., she has also attempted knife work. For her, art is an independent exploration of her identity. Apart from nature, its creatures, buildings, insects and even amorphous images become subject for her works.
A galloping horse and two hands reaching out to each other from the earth and sky while a lightning passes from one hand to other are among the works that strike at the first instance, apart from the knife work on a modern street. “It is for the viewer also to interpret the paintings though I have my own ideas. That is what art is all about,” says Meghna non-chalantly.
Her parents Reghu Narayan and Anisha R.G., doing own business, are there with her at the expo, giving every bit of encouragement to her. The 20 paintings on display were drawn over the past two years. She has also done a brilliant work on a Fort Kochi street.
“We want to give the best of art and taste for the eyes and palate for the guests and we look forward to curate such kind of engagement platform for more budding talents in future,” says Dinesh Rai of Four Points by Sheraton....
