Earthy Hues is an exhibition that shall showcase the artworks of 2 of eminent artist – G Reghu and Anki Khurana. While G Reghu is a prolific sculptor, Anki Khurana is known for her nature inspired paintings.
Sculptures of G.Reghu are the embodiment of an idea, a metaphor beyond the physicality of the form itself. Not limited by scale or material, his generic ‘heads series’ in bronze and ceramic are seemingly simple, sublime and sensitive and are monumental in their expressive contours. They, nevertheless, hold deep cultural connections and memories and speak to the human spirit.

Reghu’s works are inspired by the artist’s own agricultural background, and the Gandhian ideal of working with local materials. The figures themselves are doll-like and employ traditional folk motifs –like women and children at leisure, with expressions of joy or wonder. The muted organic earth colours and a matte finish recall his Indian village roots.

Praised by the likes of legendary E. Alkazi, Anki Bhutia’s works have consciously digressed from the idea of making a perfect picture frame. They evolve from a monastic discipline as practised in Buddhism. Imagination intensifies her perception of the nature transforming every object of her painting into a living being.
Originally from Sikkim, Anki grew up in the pristine lap of nature. It was when she moved to Delhi for higher studies that she really realised the richness and wisdom of her inheritance, something she had so far taken for granted. It is this realisation that is often reflected in her work.
The exhibition shall display unseen works of both artist and aims to be a visual treat for art collectors and art enthusiasts alike.

K.K. Hebbar was born in 1911 in Kattingeri, Udipi, Karnataka. Growing up, Hebbar saw his father, a Ganesh idol sculptor and was inclined towards art. Thus, after some initial training in Mysore, he joined Sir J.J. School of Art, Mumbai from 1940-45. Here he drew his fascination for impressionism. But his source of inspiration remained Indian classical art. In 1949, he studied at the Academie Julian in Paris, and was exposed to more Western art. Later he studied graphics at Ecole Estinne.
Despite being exposed Western sensibilities, Hebbar’s body of work remained rooted in the folk traditions of India. His early paintings of landscapes and figure compositions disciplined him and made him create his own unique style, rhythm and colour. To understand rhythm, he even learnt the dance form of Kathak.
Hebbar was inspired by the illustrations of Jain manuscripts, Mughal miniatures and Ajanta murals. He was also highly influenced by Paul Gauguin and Amrita Sher Gill. In his work, he harmoniously blended the traditional Indian forms with elements of Western art such as surrealism and abstract art. He had a strong social concern which made him focus on themes like poverty, hunger and the destruction wrought by war and the nuclear explosion. Simultaneously, he was inspired by music and dances like Kathak, and captured the grace of the dancers and performers in his paintings.
Hebbar served as the chairman of the Artists’ Centre, Mumbai from 1953-73. In 1976, Hebbar became a fellow of Lalit Kala Akademi. Hebbar was honoured with a number of awards through his career, including the Padma Shri in 1961, Padma Bhushan by the President of India in 1989, and the Maharashtra Shasan Gourav Puraskar in 1990. He passed away in 1996.

“I have yet to see one happy woman.”
B. Prabha was born in the village of Bela, near Nagpur in Maharashtra in 1933. Growing up in a close-knit middle-class family, she studied at the Nagpur School of Art and went on pursue a Diploma in Painting and Mural Painting from the Sir J.J. School of Art, Mumbai. Although she worked mostly with oils on canvas, this modern painter did explore several media, styles and subjects before finally settling with oils as her preferred medium. Following her phase of experimentation, Prabha developed an elegant, formal style that remains her trademark. Her paintings cover a wide range of subjects, from landscapes to social issues like droughts, hunger and homelessness. A significant component of Prabha’s body of work is the artist’s self-conscious attempt to immortalize the plight of women in her country.
Prabha’s signature style fully evolved after her marriage to fellow artist B. Vithal in 1956, when she moved from modern abstract forms to a more decorative figuration. She held her first joint exhibition with her husband the same year. It is interesting to note that B. Prabha was a practicing female artist in an age where women were unapologetically oppressed, and it is no surprise therefore that Prabha used her own position as an artist to make strong comments on the same. While her work today might seem like a simple documentation of the figures of rural women, it must be taken into account that a few decades ago these might have been odes to the spirit and plight of the women.

Ganesh Haloi’s art has evolved through a series of transactions from pure landscape to the innerscapes.
Even though it is abstract, Haloi’s works and his motifs have precise associations with the artist’s psyche, his experiences and the upheavals that have shaped him and his point of view. “Everything begins in pain,” says Haloi. He maintains high standards craftsmanship and his construction of tress, houses and the ambience of Kolkata that seems murky with a suppressed strength. Some of his unforgettable work includes nature-scapes painted on rice paper.
Born in 1936 in East Bengal, now, Bangladesh he migrated to Kolkata during the partition. He graduated from Government College of Art & craft kolkata in 1956 and joined Archaeological Survey of India as a Senior Artist. He was deputed to work at Ajanta from 1957 to 1963. Then he joined Art College Kolkata as a lecturer in 1964.
His initial work includes study of miniatures at Banasthali (Rajasthan) and copying Ajanta frescoes for six years. While his earlier work is dominated with landscapes, his later paintings reflect his introvert and philosophic temperament. Haloi’s work shows his preoccupation with the theme of devastation or calamity and resilience.
