The Claridges, New Delhi
“If magic was a colour, That colour would be sparkling blue,” wrote Lucy H. Pearce, in She of the Sea. Indeed, blue is an emotion, a passion, a feeling that reflects the vastness of the sky as well as the depth of the oceans. As an ode to this colour that captures the mystery of sapphires and also the intensity of the beloved’s blue eyes, the Delhi Art Gallery presents a show entitled Indian Blue: From Realism to Abstraction. How myriad artists perceive and articulate the colour blue in their oeuvre is the mainstay of this show.
Exploring a multitude of artistic practices ranging from the realistic to the abstract, from landscapes and portraits along with history paintings and figurative compositions, the show features over 90 artists. The artworks themselves explore the versatility of mediums such as watercolours, oil paintings, acrylics, prints and even sculpture across an equally interesting range of mediums-oils, watercolours, acrylics, printmaking, sculpture - and periods, examining the history of the colour blue in India, and the world prompted by its seemingly universal value.

This is artist Tanmoy Samanta’s third solo show at TARQ. Entitled The Shape of Home, the artworks on display are a reflection of oft-neglected aspects of domestic spaces. Created during the pandemic, the artist views how homes are our most cherished and sometimes most dreaded place. Deploying collages and watercolour paintings, Samanta’s manages to “elevate the miniature to the epic.”
Aditionally, his art features birds, wherein they are deftly used to divulge the dichotomy in existence: the beautiful and the beasteous, the fleeting and lasting, the tangible and the intangible, and so on. The works carry an almost poetic narrative that is moving and compels the viewer to internalize their thoughts.

In The Light Of is a one-of-its-kind exhibition that is inspired by a real story that took place in 1970 at Agra’s famed Fatehpur Sikri. When artist friends Nasreen Mohamedi and Gulammohammed Sheikh meet at the spot, they happen to take a series of pictures that lay forgotten until five decades. But, based on Sheikhs’ reminisces and the show’s curator, Gitanjali Dang’s interpretation of the deeper context of the photographic works, here is a show that is curated to revisit ideas of kinship, memories, history, passage of time, and of life in general.
