About the Exhibition
What would have become of life if there was no unification? There would have been no life at all. We are in constant harmony with every entity that surrounds us, the air we breathe, the people we meet and even the food we take, all these things expand and confirm our being. And this unification is most realized when one is constantly reminded by a companion in a relationship of love and harmony. Young artists Ishan and Sabita through these two-person show are in a pursuit to convey such ideas of love and intimacy. The paintings and drawings in this exhibition shift its viewers to a dream-like realm, a state one elevates when one is understood and the person who understands is just in front of you. Several groups and solo art show to their credit, the two artists envision and bring forth affinity, stories of love, being loved and the spirit lifted when one experiences love and relationship.
