This solo art show will be at display at Aakriti Art Gallery, Lado Sarai, Delhi, from 30th January till 28th February, 2016, 11 am till 7 pm.

Ramkumar, regarded as one of the first-generation of post-independence artists in India, with contemporaries like M.F Hussain, F.N Sousa, SH Raza and Akbar Padamsee, began his artistic journey studying at Sharada Ukil school of Art and later went to Paris to get trained under Andre Lhote and Fernand Legar.

This exhibition showcases his smaller works, the lines and strokes drawn extempore, more like a diary, in this context literally done on bahikhatas (account books) where a certain ‘contextual’ mood is charted, followed and spontaneously documented, leaf after leaf, in sensitive, live-wire like lines and colours, which are truly sensitizing and illuminating. The way the lines and colours ‘proceed’ at times hesitantly, and at another point affirmatively, is aesthetically satisfying and exciting at the same time.

The idea behind this showcase is to celebrate and focus on his works which differ to a large extent from the bigger works done on canvas with oil and acrylic and. The scribbles of an artist are rarely seen, nevertheless, the viewer is invited to absorb more intimately, a journey of the artist which traverses, paths, bridges, mountain- like heights and vistas of a mental cape (signifying landscapes as well) in all their dark, white, grey and bright hues.
