Energy, beauty in Dr. Rekha Rana’s abstract paintings

Tuesday, August 10, 2010

A sensitive artist Dr. Rekha K. Rana appears to have been affected by the Maoist violence in the Jharkand region. “The landmines are the new farms of farming… When the flora and fauna have metamorphosed into a different religion of violence, one would only try to remember the days when the flowers used to blossom in the valley and the aroma had enveloped every part of the jungle. How painful you might be feeling watching Babu Munda, Karia Uraon, Handi Murmu and many more cleaning the barrels of country-made or other sophisticated guns. They have stopped dancing to the tune of Jhumar and Chho, they never sing a lyric expressing their passion for hills and rivers; everybody is uncertain about tomorrow or for that matter the next moment…”

The abstract works by the artist are on display at the Museum Art Gallery. They relate to the culture and traditions of rural India, particularly Jharkhand. “I paint the woes and sorrows of people on the margin. Through my paintings, I am in search of an energy which may enable me to bring a smile on faces to which the urban turn a blind eye.”

The art values in Rekha’s paintings are high. She seems to have a method, a purpose and a target. In this effort she succeeds to a great extent. The colour mix is done admirably – with yellows, reds and green blending into one another.”

The exhibition by Dr. Rekha Rana will go on till Aug. 15. Contact: 9820770258.
