If you are fascinated by Lord Krishna’s flexibility, adaptability, statesmanship and courage in the face of any challenge, then visit a solo show of paintings titled Krishna – The Enigma at Gallerie Ganesha, E-557, Greater Kailash II, New Delhi from March 23 to April 18, 2018, 11 am to 7 pm by Ajmer-based artist Ashok Hazra.
Inspired by Srinathji form of Krishna in Nathdwara (Rajasthan), Hazra uses the subtle shades of acrylic to recreate the dark jambul coloured icon, surrounded with cows gazing at him with soulful eyes. These paintings have a calming effect on the mind and soul. The rhythmic brushstrokes, the forms and textures, the lines and dots and the layering of colours are all reflective of Hazra’s connect with the god himself. Each frame shows the immense soul searching which has gone into giving a body to the enigma of a god.
