Elysian-II, an exhibition of paintings, has now marked its presence at the Government Museum and Art Gallery, Sector 10, Chandigarh. The 13th edition of Chandigarh-based artist Anu Singh’s artwork, Elysian-II celebrated the ethereal beauty of nature, one that is sure to hypnotise the lovers of art and nature.
The title of the exhibition, Elysian-II hails its etymology from Greek mythology that symbolises a blissful and delightful state. Singh firmly believes that the picturesque landscapes and artwork displayed in the exhibition represent the ‘elysian’ philosophy that is painted on the canvas.
When asked about her source of inspiration behind this scintillating artwork, Singh said, “I have always been in awe of mother nature, and the same translates in my artwork. Just like Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, ‘nature always wears the colours of the spirit’, my paintings are an ode to the myriad hues of nature.”
“Living intimately with nature always fills my heart and soul with ecstasy and that ultimately entices me to put those vivacious colours on my palette,” Singh added.
The Elysian-II art exhibition has in store a wide range of paintings, ranging from the dark woods to the flourishing spring.
While providing an insider’s view of her paintings at the exhibition, Singh shared, “All my paintings that are displayed here celebrate the vibrant yet dramatic contrasts of nature that are sure to bring solace in the life of every art and nature lover. After all, nature is the best form of art.”
“I feel that it is the support of my loved ones and my passion to create art which persuades my imagination to create something unique,” smiled Singh.—TNS
