In line with its commitment to support artistic expression, Alliance française de Bhopal recently organised an exhibition of paintings by Veena Jain. Entitled ‘A Tranquil Journey’, the exhibition was inaugurated on April 27 by Dilip Suryavanshi and Seema Suryavanshi of Dilip Buildcon. The inauguration ceremony was followed by a poetry reading session by Hutashan Vajpeyi. The exhibition was a deeply personal expression of the way Veena views the world and drew large crowds to the AF Bhopal gallery!

Veena explains that her paintings are narratives which recount experiences that have touched her. The artist insists on maintaining an intimate relationship with her surroundings. She captures her impressions of all that is around her in her work in order to reflect on the same. Her paintings often rely on a rustic color palette and abstraction in order to resonate with her audience. It is thus that the mundane is elevated to the artistic in her oeuvres.

Through her Art, Veena’s goal is to strip away all that is superficial and extraneous in the material sphere. She aims to arrive at an understanding of the fundamental nature of things. The artist admits that her childhood,  spent in a rural ambiance with its mud racked houses, has deeply affected her mental makeup. Traveling down the lanes of her formative years, she finds herself attracted to these memories which find expression on the canvas!  ‘A Tranquil Journey’ was open for public viewing till May 11, 2019.
