Months into the lockdown, the outdoors feel distant, ungraspable. A swirl of hot steam from a roadside chai, city traffic blinking past beyond a cab window, and beautiful sunsets; are all the memories that are still with us and give us hope. The carefully chosen mix of paintings, photographs and digital art makes the outdoors tangible, and visual again, forging an instant connection with the places you want to be in. Even within four walls, one does not have to be indoors and can experience a world of excitement within.
Full Moon In The Night Sky By Arvind A , Kukatpally
Evocative of the night sky, the minimal approach to the overall visual reminds us of astronomy, constellations and the speckled dust of distant stars. The piece ‘Full Moon in the Night Sky’ by Arvind A. is like a quiet, magical night spent stargazing on a beach, making the piece an excellent buy for those who adventure at night and miss it’s quiet beauty.
Sky And Earth Ii By Meagher, Megan
Speeding along a highway, leaving your worries behind, you look out of your car window. The sky runs with you and the earth unravels like a never-ending fabric. Broad, open strokes of blue and green, and the white strip of the horizon invite you to go on those family/solo trips you’d planned on. Meghan Meagher’s Sky and Earth II is the missing puzzle in your lockdown reverie.
Sun By Leya Srinivas
Sunset orange, fall leaves, walks in the park, evenings spent in quiet contemplation or inspired conversations; all these amazing aspects come together in Leya Srinivas’ ’Sun’. The visuals offer us traces of countless evenings spent outside, connecting with the warmth and the atmosphere; offering us a small escape from our current situation!
Abstract 02 By Cr Shelare
You don’t feel like working from home and staying cooped up inside has drained you. You’d normally go for a run with the wind in your hair and your sleeves rippling. However for now, Cr Shelare’s abstract painting, with its electric blues and shocking greens and short, quick strokes of rippling colour take you on that run you otherwise could go on, making the easy lightness of the palette take away some of the heaviness.
Untitled By Dnyaneshwar Dhavale
Now sit back on your chair as this painting by Dnyaneshwar Dhavale takes you on a slow drive. You’re probably lost, but there’s the wide stretch of the unexplored, a road in front of you, and that’s all you really need. One of the best things about being outdoors is meandering, getting lost and finding your way. This piece is all you need to bring that back.
