Architectural paintings


APPA RAO Galleries is presenting an exhibition of paintings by Farhan Mujib titled Through the Prism of Memory from January 8 to 11 at Time and Space Gallery, 55, Lavelle Road. As part of the show, poet and lyricist Javed Akhtar will recit a series of poems inspired by Farhan's works at the ITC Hotel Windsor Sheraton and Towers at 7. 30 p.m. today.

Gayatri Sinha, art reviewer, says the artist use techniques of cut, tear and paste to build an architectural structure. The "deceptively simple" work, she observes, brings forth an intricate co-ordination of mind and hand at work. R.S. Yadav says this work of collage is "not like assembling ordinary bricks or blocks that have a pre-determined plan to go by". Collage, to him, is about creating an image even as one is building it.

Venkateshwar Singh of Dharohar Art Conservation Centre, Lucknow, a professional art restorer, has assisted Farhan Mujib in preparing the surfaces for his work to ensure longevity considering that the life of paper works are fragile.

Farhan's background as a physicist, art critics say, add to his skill in structures, while the literary background helps his creativity.
