The circle represents endlessness, a certain sense of infinity that lends itself so naturally to all forms of art. Adorned with religious meaning, spiritual significance and a cosmic relevance, circles, when used rightly, can guide the eyes, or play tricks on them. What can you accomplish with a circle? How can you tease its curve into stories? The 5 artworks below take the notion of the circle and frame it in funny, insightful, and riotous ways.
Wall Mounted Balloon Sculpture Pastel Yellow By Vernika
The image of the balloon strings childhood, happiness and dreaming into an enchanting fairy tale ensemble. The cheery yellow and the fibre glass shine make the balloon pop – without a pin. Jayanta Bhattacharya’s sculpture of the balloon solidifies these emotions against your wall. The circle here takes you down memory lane, and brings life full circle.
Wheel Of Time By Aarrti Zaveri
Wheel of Time uses the circle to show the ceaseless and at times, relentless motion of time. Within its circumference, it holds a multitude of melting colours, perfectly portraying life that passes by with the speed of time. Aarti Zaveri’s Wheel of Time reminds us to cherish every moment.
Adventure Awaits By Chayanika Sood
The circle becomes the world in Chayanika Sood’s Adventure Awaits. Globes, being miniatures of the vast world, are circles filled with endless possibilities. Mounted on its own pedestal, Sood’s globe invites its owner to spin its pink snow-topped mountains. Today, as we all sit bound to our houses, this globe simply takes us on a journey away from our realities and into an adventure of the imagination.
The Way By Arvind A
Arvind’s The Way experiments with concentric circles. It illustrates how curves can draw a sharp, straight line of focus. He superimposes the circle on the image resembling a pathway, and brings forth a unique perspective; seamlessly guiding the eye to the centre of the picture. The Way combines motifs of science fiction and the spiritual third eye connotations within the concentric circles.
Inner Quest 1 By Shovin Bhattacharjee
The circles in Shovin Bhattacharjee’s Inner Quest are nests, where miniature men to brood. Stacked over each other, the circles seem to go on forever, echoing an endless tunnel with no light in sight. Disappearing into its own shadow, the circles here take on man’s many anguishes and inner strugglesand show us that the only way out is through within.
