“C'era una barriera di rete a maglia fine, fra di loro, ma lui faceva ancora parte di lei, erano ancora uniti. Per ancora un secondo, o poco più, era ancora la sua anima, la cara e unica anima sua.” (Philip Pullman, "La bussola d'oro") The beautiful work by @natasciaraffio 🖤🦄🍭 #contemporaryart #contemporaryvisions #popsurrealism #upsidedown #pearlcolors #watercolor #originaldrawing by wonderful #natasciaraffio #pink #pinkisnewblack #fallinlove
“Everyone I come across, in cages they bought They think of me and my wandering, but I’m never what they thought I’ve got my indignation, but I’m pure in all my thoughts I’m alive… Wind in my hair, I feel part of everywhere Underneath my being is a road that disappeared Late at night I hear the trees, they’re singing with the dead Overhead…” (Eddie Vedder - Guaranteed) Wonderful creature 🖤🦄🍭🐻art by @taramcpherson @thecottoncandymachine @kidrobot #taramcpherson #tenderheartbear #carebear #contemporaryart #contemporaryvisions #popsurrealism #finallymine #fallinlove #curiositàfelina

Contemporary Visions @gallery78.in July, 2018 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Contemporary Visions is an art exhibition about a way of seeing. We are concerned not just with how we see physically, the mechanics of vision, but also with perspective, and new ways of looking at things. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #contemporaryvisions #gallery78 #hyderabad #india #artgallery #artexhibition #contemporaryart #modernart #fineart #artcollecting #acryliconcanvas #shotoniphone #shotonmoment #momentwide #shotonmomentwide #momentcamera #colorfields #abstractexpressionism #cubism #geometricart #geometricabstraction #geometric #paintings #geometricpainting #artindia #indianart #hyderabadart #indianartists #abdullahkhan #abdullahkhanart
Contemporary Visions @gallery78.in July, 2018 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is an exhibition about how colour and form is able to affect our mental states. Although this is not a new idea, I felt it needed to be revisited in this exhibit for its current relevance, and so use it to encourage mindfulness. Painting styles include abstract expressionism, colour fields, geometric abstraction and impressionism. There is an emphasis on straight lines dividing space and allowing a kaleidoscope of colour and thereby emotion. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #contemporaryvisions #gallery78 #hyderabad #india #artgallery #artexhibition #contemporaryart #modernart #fineart #artcollecting #acryliconcanvas #shotoniphone #shotonmoment #momentwide #shotonmomentwide #colorfields #abstractexpressionism #cubism #geometricart #geometricabstraction #geometric #paintings #artwork #geometricpainting #artindia #indianart #hyderabadart #indianartists #abdullahkhan #abdullahkhanart
Contemporary Visions @gallery78.in July, 2018 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A colourful exhibition featuring over 65 unique artworks, curated by me over a three month period. The theme is contemporary, as suggested by the title, but also has to do with vision and attention. Each of the 7 artists bring their perspectives with them, their experiences and skills all differing, yet all united in a pursuit of something bigger than themselves, a vision of today. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #contemporaryvisions #gallery78 #hyderabad #india #artgallery #artexhibition #contemporaryart #modernart #fineart #artcollecting #acryliconcanvas #shotoniphone #shotonmoment #momentwide #colorfields #abstractexpressionism #cubism #geometricart #geometricabstraction #geometric #paintings #artwork #geometricpainting #artindia #indianart #contemporaryindia #hyderabadart #indianartists #abdullahkhan #abdullahkhanart

Satish Bhaisare @satishbhaisare Contemporary Visions, July 2018 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Nature and my paintings have a direct compelling experience, pulsating with energy and rhythm. This does not directly involve the attempt to precisely register fleeting effects of nature; whereas it seeks to reveal nature as an awesome, larger than life, force. My roots being of a farmer, has evolved over a process of time watching and wandering along the fields of serenity - to the fragrance of nature and its soothing songs. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My work traverses this search of the connection between our emotional psyche and the experience one goes through our modern times. My sole feeling just expresses this notion into tonal values with horizontal and vertical bands of colors with muzzy edges, revealing a silence within. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Being my roots of a layman, who reaps his fruits of life, I tend to use a lot of physical movement and action in my process of painting, and I personally feel a fulfillment with a work of art when my body and soul connect simultaneously.”
Prarena Vaid @prarena.vaid Contemporary Visions, July 2018 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “‘Kaivalya’ is a state of detachment from the bondages, duality and the aversion of life. It is a state of freedom within oneself, but not in seclusion. Kaivalya is the realization of aloofness with liberating knowledge of one’s self and union with the self and the universe. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We are all conduits of a fundamental entity of nature, energy, hence I created this series of works to abstract, process and conduct precisely that. The hand made pure copper embellishments used on the paintings signify the importance of the conduction of that energy which is pure and powerful. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thus the series portrays the will and the liberation of a ‘self’ that sees itself as nothing but a formless retention of the higher conscious; uninhibited by the ‘physical’. Each painting is a depiction of one’s constant struggle to erase in mind whatever that attaches as well as sets us apart from rest of ‘Prakriti’ (nature). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The depiction of the lotus is of particular significance. It grows from the bottom of the streams and muddy ponds to rise above the water and bloom. At night, it closes and sinks below the water, to resurface again, untouched, the next day. Fully grounded in Earth, yet aspiring towards divine, the lotus flower lives in the muddy water and yet remains unsoiled. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Every struggle is like mud - there are always some lotus seeds waiting to sprout. Each result, every dot, line and stroke encapsulates a deeper thought or sometimes may be just a void. To paint is to immerse yourself in fathomless waters of vulnerabilities where each emotion is desperate to make its way up the abyss and coerce the smoky echoes to be heard, when we already know that outcry of our deeper selves will never identified or seen or heard. But still we paint, and emblazon the canvases all in a hope to be understood; in a hope to understand.”
Pragya Jain @pragyajain.art Contemporary Visions, July 2018 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I feel the need to focus on issues in a systematic manner, hence my forms. I paint subjects that stay with me after a conversation, occurrences and my travels. I believe the fragments in my paintings are like the little pieces that make up this big thing called life. Each section represents an experience. This cluster of fragments come together to create an experience of the colors, emotions and the message that the work conveys. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In every painting the elements are camouflaged, yet the obvious ones concentrated upon. My brain naturally switches to abstraction and fragmentation, bringing a sense of mystery to my work. The subjects vary from everything that fascinates me to anything that has stayed in my memory for years. Nevertheless, it’s an optimistic one! I strive for my work to be fun, vibrant, youthful and a testimony of my existence. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I want my painting, with all its intricacy, to bring immense bliss and brilliance to the space it adorns. There is too much disparity around, I would like to add a little joyfulness on this planet one work of art at a time. Even when I tackle a grave underlying issue with my work, there will be several elements to overpower the dark side with the brighter one. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In my world, I paint the solution to a concern, not just the concern. The nucleus of my paintings is in the miracles of nature that sustain life, and evocative imagery being integrated into a vision of grace, spirituality and happiness.”
Naina Maithani @naina.maithani Contemporary Visions, July 2018 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “My paintings take their cues from nature, like any other being, or more so as an artist, I am allured by the charm and magnanimity of Mother Earth – not just because it is exquisite, but because she stirs my soul and allows me to experience something way beyond myself and something far greater than my own reality. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To express the spontaneous and visceral immediacy of my visions, I abandon all hints of figuration and instead choose to express myself in the fluid and intuitive vocabulary of colour. Ever since childhood, I’ve aspired to and possessed an intrinsic ability and potential to revise the colour wheel on a canvas using simple techniques. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The canvases feature powerful landscapes of amorphous shapes and spaces, abstract fields of colour with no organic form as such, sweeping swathes of blue, vibrant seas of green, and gauzy fields of black, maroon and deep red. Remarkably enough, the effect is not of flat, one-- dimensional planes, but tactile paintings that radiate vibrancy and depth. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My canvases may make you feel like travelling into the void. It isn’t an empty, dark space though, but a fertile and nourishing crucible where stories are birthed, where we discover the true essence of things and get in touch with our emotional core. Far from being hard to comprehend, highly engaging abstracts create a heightened, unified field where we experience multiple perspectives and layers of thought and feeling, all at once. On my canvases, assorted elements and aspects of the world coalesce and melt into a vortex of colours, textures, shapes, drips and blurred edges. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Abstract art to me is immersive and dynamic. They open up like meditative portals taking viewers spiraling into assorted moods, feelings and places. ‘Within’ is a doorway that leads you from the limited, the everyday and the finite into intriguing formless realms.”
Ayesha Nazneen @artby.naz Contemporary Visions, July 2018 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “They say art is inherent in every human being, prevalent in some and occurs in some as result of circumstances and environment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When I was young I began painting in Microsoft Paint and Photoshop which provided me the ease of using diverse brushstrokes and customised colours. Later, I started exploring the beauty and serenity of nature with painting and various landscapes. The calmness of night where a tree is adorned by moonlight, the flowers blooming in the spring, the falling leaves of fall, the feeling of cold in snow and the many more aspects of nature have inspired me to capture their feeling on the canvas. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I enjoy creating artwork which perceives change and dynamic essences such as waterfall, snowfall and autumn and rain with its alluring flow in time. I prefer to use greens and blues as it gives a soothing effect to the eye, along with the base of contrasts and highlights that pulls the viewer’s eye to natural light source. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I immensely admire how Impressionism offers depiction of a subject in its vibrancy and natural light-play while using little details and contrasting colours, with close attention to reflections and shadows to create a vivid, dynamic scene. I like to challenge myself and paint something without limitations, because I feel that I should not confine myself to a particular style when l can continue to grow by trying new styles. That said, I do believe I will always find contentment with painting nature, either in realistic or Impressionistic art form.”
Abdullah Khan @abdullahkhan.art Contemporary Visions, July 2018 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “My works are observations and experiments in human vision, perception, and colour, and overcoming the challenges of depicting a 4-dimensional world on a flat surface. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Painting is a way of depiction, just as photographs are, but they differ in one crucial aspect: a camera freezes time and space into a fixed perspective, whereas the human optic system is constantly registering change. A camera with one eye does not see like two eyes and a brain. We see everything in focus, but we don't see it all at once; that's the point. We take time. Yet, if you ask the average person which looks more real, they would say the photograph, and I'm convinced it can't be true. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Cubism was unfortunate name and wasn't given for any real reasons. Essentially, it's a different way of looking and it's about reality and perception. In the art world, Cubism has been greatly misinterpreted as being about abstraction, which it's not. It's about perceiving the physical. Cubism is about how we see what we see. This is the fundamental idea which drew me to start making paintings on canvas. Paintings, I believe, are able to represent reality closer to how we really perceive it, which is seeing with movement (space) and with memory (time). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There are challenges, of course, but I believe a good painting can make you see more clearly.”

Contemporary Visions is an exhibition about how colour and form is able to affect our mental states. Painting styles feature abstract expressionism, colour fields, geometric abstraction and impressionism. There is an emphasis on straight lines throughout, dividing space and allowing a kaleidoscope of colour and thereby emotion. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Last week to experience it!
Contemporary Visions on display until 15 July. One week left to see it! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is a colourful exhibition featuring over 65 unique artworks, assembled over a three month period. Each of the 7 artists bring their perspectives with them, their experiences and skills all differing yet all united in a pursuit of something bigger than themselves, a vision of today.
Paintings don’t actively demand attention. We interact with them passively, if at all. If you find yourself giving it attention, you will find that it causes something within. You will feel something. Sometimes they make you curious, sometimes bored, sometimes they anger you. Sometimes, they do nothing. Maybe you see it a day or week later. You begin to realise the significant changes that do occur, occur not within the painting, but in your mind and perception of the painting. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This exhibition was put together to allow the paintings to assist in this process of disengaging. They were chosen for their ability to induce mindfulness, to allow the mind to relax and wander, to let go of the mundane and allow focus on the things that really matter. The idea being that if you sit down in front of one, it should help you in some way by bringing you into the present moment, the here and now. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ve always felt that the purpose of art is to uplift the spirit of man. If to educate, to calm, to inspire, or to simply see. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Very Truly, Abdullah Khan ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ (Page i, an excerpt) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #exhibitioncatalogue #artexhibition #paintings #contemporaryart #gallery78 #artgallery #hyderabad #artindia #indianartists #artasia #modernart #exhibition #exhibitiondesign #exhibitioncatalog #artcatalogue #indianart #art #gallery #contemporaryindia #indianartscene #indianmodernart #contemporaryartindia #indianarts #indianartist #indianartgallery #artcatalog #contemporaryvisions
