‘Bloom where you are Planted’ Art Exhibition: Celebrating Nature and Resilience
Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], August 16:thecurators.art proudly presents a curated art exhibition titled ‘Bloom where you are Planted’, featuring works of five accomplished artists hailing from different corners of India. The exhibition will be hosted at the prestigious Auditorium Hall of the Jehangir Art Gallery in Kala Ghoda, Mumbai, from August 15th to August 21st, 2023.
‘Bloom where you are Planted’ is an artistic celebration of Mother Nature’s beauty and a metaphorical embodiment of the idea of flourishing despite adversity. In these uncertain times, the exhibition urges us to embrace growth and living in the present. The artists have embarked on diverse explorations of the theme, with botany and Nature serving as the catalyst for their creative expressions.
The featured artists, BhaskarBotcha, Nidhi Jacob, SandeepJigdung, ShampaSircar Das, and SiddharthShingade, have passionately crafted artworks for this show. Nidhi and Sandeep capture the ethereal allure of blooming flora, while Bhaskar and Siddharth draw inspiration from the culturally significant tree (Vriksh). Shampa seamlessly weaves nature’s motifs into figurative art, creating a captivating fusion of spiritual elements.
The exhibition also holds a deeper purpose — to address our responsibility towards the environment and its limited resources. Through their artworks, the artists urge viewers to envision a sustainable future, highlighting the urgent need to unite against the man-made threats looming over our natural world. ‘Bloom where you are Planted’ stands as a collective homage to India’s lush forests and its rich biodiversity.
SapnaKar and RajneetaKewalramani, the Co-Founders of thecurators.art, express their excitement about the exhibition, stating, “The artworks are not only visually captivating but also transport viewers to serene woods and abundant gardens. Each piece embodies tranquillity and beauty, inviting the audience to connect with nature on a profound level. Through these artworks, we explore our intrinsic connection with nature and its spiritual significance.”
