‘Transformation Manifested’: A fusion of personal experiences in Art

Transformation Manifested,’ a solo show by artist U. Vijay Kumar, is being held until September 30th. This show is curated by Kiran K. Mohan and organized by Gallery 1000A.
For the artist Vijay Kumar, each artwork epitomizes a special feeling that he has experienced during his life. The palette of colors he uses defines the intricate complexities of day-to-day life.
Curator Kiran K. Mohan said, “The challenges and struggles are captured in each of U. Vijay Kumar’s artworks and perhaps if viewed closely they communicate the sensibilities of the audiences. The artworks manifest the eagerness to break free, yet with conviction and belief. The discipline he follows in the choice of colours and the usage of medium accelerates his creative magnitude. His inspiration in his own life, doesn›t get influenced by any trends but works around metaphors and concepts to produce tough expressions which becomes his signature seal.”
While the artist continues to experiment and introduces new techniques of varies art forms, Vijay recollects by saying «how fortunate I am to have learned a lot of intricacies about art through classes and close association with great teachers such as KG Subramanian, Nasreen Mohammedi, Jerem Patel, and Krishna Chhatpar».
Curator Kiran K. Mohan further said, “The showcased artworks are the amalgamation of personal experiences, feeling and emotions which are translated through a visual vocabulary that is coined by the artist himself, the abbreviated minimalistic, symbolic use of human figures, flora and fauna.
The transformation he lives along each day with acceptance of the past, gives him a new hope and motivation to embrace his life to the way it comes.”
Artist U. Vijay Kumar said that his preoccupation with paintings was to make an attempt to relate his subjective experience in relation to his surroundings and situations.
Artist U. Vijay Kumar said, “A serious attempt to understand the feeling of the void within me set me thinking about existing reality. A dematerialized human form became the protagonist in the quest of understanding the metaphysical reality around me.
The individual figure in my work tries to express the states of mind. A mood of non-involvement is deliberately created so as to offer the viewer the critical distance to watch the mental landscapes contained within, in order to understand the very center of being.”
The protagonist moves poignantly across the canvas crossing all barriers of time and space.
“The timelessness of this unfathomable human existence, the plurality of mental phases, questions of individual will, and identity are the concerns expressed through my work.
I am drawn to the human figure through which I can connect my own feelings and emotions to the present-day situation and voice man’s exposed condition in a world of severe conflict,” he added.
