EXHIBITION 'Lost innocence of the cityscape’ a solo show by artist Meena Yadav

Meena Yadav has been working on this series of art works for a very long time and is a keen observer of city life. Living on an upper floor of a multi-story apartment in Gurgaon, she observes the daily life of the city keenly and passionately. What she realizes is that cities, not only Gurgaon but others also, are expanding, vertically and horizontally. Not only the nature but the innocence of our inner personality is being disturbed and destroyed. Through her paintings Meena explores a human’s relation to nature. She is raising awareness about environmental problems our planet faces. Like Meena, many of us are living in big cities, be it, Gurgaon, New Delhi, Peking or New York. We feel and experience the same thing about the burgeoning cities.

"Artists are global citizens. All artists live in some cities or countries, but their concerns are global. Meena is no exception. She thinks about her country but at the same time she is concerned about the health of our planet. Our planet is in danger because of ecological imbalances. Every day we watch or read about the Eco disaster in some country. If not artists, who will think about them" - Says Meena Yadav

Meena uses the colours in her paintings, passionately and sensitively, as if the environment colours also have an emotional significance for her. The colour patterns in her paintings are subtle and soft, and is left to imagination of the viewer. The colours here show the inner tranquil mind of an artist, and how it wanders to create and reflect ones thoughts.

Through my paintings I want to raise awareness and knowledge about how crucial it is to realise and take steps towards the betterment of our society and the problems arising. I use a contrast of dark and vibrant colours to bring out the comparison between the two phases of life, giving unusual attributes and colours to objects and nature. 

The artist is an avid traveller, she has travelled around India which gave her an insight into the cultures and the problems faced by different regions which seemed common. Most of her inspiration and conviction is derived by looking at the daily lives of human beings and observing nature. "I am a nature lover, and noticing the negative response of nature towards globalisation and other human acts encouraged me to paint out reality. My main concern is the ecological imbalance in the metropolitan cities which is disrupting human and animal life, and taking away peace." - says artist Meena Yadav 

Meena has been associated with Triveni Kala Sangam Art Academy (Delhi) and has also worked under the guidance of eminent senior artists like Shobha Broota and Sanjay Roy, Meena has emerged as a prominent women artist in recent times. She has participated in many group shows organized by Sahitya Kala Parishad, Delhi, Indira Gandhi National Center for the arts (IGNCA) and other institutions. She was a participant in Khajuraho Art Festival held in 2015. Her artwork in the show, VAMA (a woman centric group exhibition in 20) was appreciated as well as loved by critics and art lovers.
