Things that are small often have a special value attached to them. It is probably this thought process that lies behind 1 Square Feet, a group exhibition of selected small format paintings and sculptures by 15 artists. Curated by G. Vignesh, the exhibition is currently on at Gallery Space.

Across India, small format artworks have always held a special place, especially in tribal cultures. In an attempt to recollect the archaic miniature art format and explore the new possibilities with contemporary and relevant interpretations by today’s artists, the group exhibition brings forth the nuanced techniques required to showcase an artwork in limited space.

 

Elaborating on his work and inspiration, artist Anil Kumar Yadav, whose work showcases the vibrant hues of village life, complete with flowers and bells all ready for a festive occasion, says, “I grew up among villagers with modest lives and thus, the village culture still inspires me to bring the best out in my artworks.”

Interestingly, for figurative artist D.V.S. Krishna, who mostly concentrates on the female form; her situation in the society and at home, the solitary free standing bust of the protagonist reinstates a meditative, serene and quiet mood. A single bright hue of yellow falls unanimously throughout his sculpture and accentuates the facial features to emerge in a soft, glossy and perfect brilliance.

Another side of expression through sustainable art is by artist Anjum Khan. “Sustainable art is produced by considering the wider impact of the work and its reception in relationship to its environments (social, economic, biophysical, historical and cultural). My creative expression comes from these concerns and involvements. All of my paintings imbibe my creative compulsions emerging from the condition of the society and from my interaction with people of Indian and global cultural identities,” shares Anjum.
