Aditi Ahuja’s Spir­i­tual Magma

Sun.Star Cebu Weekend - - P.e.e.p.s - (PR)

IN­DIAN con­tem­po­rary artist Aditi Ahuja held a solo ex­hi­bi­tion ti­tled “Spir­i­tual Magma: A World-At-Large Se­ries,” which fea­tures a col­lec­tion of paint­ings in­spired from the nat­u­ral con­nec­tions be­tween tan­gi­ble and mys­tic char­ac­ters in the artist’s en­vi­ron­ment.

Con­sist­ing of mod­ern ab­stracts, land­scapes, and tex­tured flo­rals made in oil, acrylic, gold leaf, and other me­dia, the ex­hi­bi­tion high­lights a va­ri­ety of en­er­gies that most, if not all, can re­late to. Many of her works now adorn pri­vate and cor­po­rate col­lec­tions in var­i­ous ci­ties.

Aditi, which means “bound­less” or “il­lim­itable,” rep­re­sents her taste, ex­pres­sion, insight, and tech- nique in var­i­ous forms of re­al­is­tic art. Her in­ter­est in art first grew while liv­ing in Luc­know, the an­cient cul­tural and artis­tic cap­i­tal of North In­dia. Her ini­tial works ex­plored the ru­ins of Mughal ar­chi­tec­ture and nat­u­ral land­scapes. To­day, Aditi‘s art is a ma­ture blend of years of thought, prac­tice, and ex­pe­ri­ence. She is cur­rently based in Manila and spends her time con­tribut­ing to so­ci­ety by pur­su­ing her pas­sion for art.

Uni­fy­ing var­ied as­pects of life through sim­plis­tic anal­ogy and a spir­i­tual back­drop, Spir­i­tual Magma is part of Qube Gallery’s The World-At-Large Se­ries that cel­e­brates in­ter­na­tional tal­ents. The ex­hibit, which opened last Oct. 22, runs un­til Nov. 14.
