Katia Peshakova’s solo art show “Made in India” to be unveiled at Jagannath Café, Moscow on 20th June 2010

International Official Press Release:

Moscow, 18th June, 2010: Katia Peshakova’s enduring art involving Indian spirituality, myths and traditional archetypes are to be unveiled at the Jagannath Café in Moscow. This is her second solo exhibition in Moscow in recent times. Working mainly with acrylics, Katia’s art spans a long era of ancient history and the evolution of consciousness on earth. In times of recession, when the world is engaged in trying to recuperate from financial losses, these paintings help to create a link between the mind and the higher faith in the sustainability of nature, thereby, advancing the step towards further evolution and higher consciousness. Though these are paintings that can be categorized as the folk or mythological, yet, they are acute symbols embedded in the collective consciousness of the whole human race and their aspiration towards higher truth, light and knowledge. In fact, they are symbols of man’s progress in the 21st century towards further evolution in the matter and the spirit, and towards a future that is environmentally more safe and harmonious. Some of the paintings to be exhibited include, Lord Buddha, Ganesha, Govinda and more secular ones like fish-seller, music-player etc. These paintings are traditional ones following the history of Indian art and culture, but, in a way, they also relate to a universal consciousness of an earth governed by Love, Peace, Beauty and Knowledge. According to Mr. Jeff Ross, Director, ArtVantage, UK “it’s the sincerity combined with an honest endeavour that admires me about Katia’s art; the skill exhibited, the profusion of colours and the rhythmic dexterity is wonderful, it allows me to say that her works claim the concept that God is in the details”.

The exhibition will continue from 20th June, Sunday till 20th July Tuesday at the Jagannath Café, Moscow and one may not miss out a rare opportunity to see an Indian Summer and Monsoon of Colours at Moscow.

For further information on the exhibition, please get in touch with the Gallery at Jagannath Cafe, Moscow, Kuznetsky most 11.

New Art Exhibition: Timeless Deities/ Title: Bull-Turtle/Artist: Samij Datta, 2010

New Art Exhibition: Timeless Deities
Title: Bull-Turtle/Artist: Samij Datta
Year: 2010
Medium: Mixed Media on paper

Note: Bull-Turtle
Each bright cluster breaks and renews
There are thin lines and jagged shapes
Thats how the death is defined in nature
Its piercing eyes tears the bull, threatens the turtle
There in the somber shadow under the sun
The broken fragments are arranged laterally
As if the heart knew the pain of suffering
And can reassemble the ruins of Guernica
That if its true then the art has lived
To a given time that holds the key
And the consciousness slowly comes with the light.

New Art Exhibition: Timeless Deities, An Invocation to the Spirit of the Ancient Mother, Part II (Fish-Angel)/Artist: Samij Datta, 2010

New Art Exhibition: Timeless Deities/ Artist Samij Datta
Title: An Invocation to the Spirit of the Ancient Mother (part II)/Fish-Angel
Year: 2010
Medium: Ink on Paper

Note: An Invocation to the Spirit of the Ancient Mother (part II)/Fish-Angel

Fish-angel’s eyes can dream and see
The world without the paintbrush and its strokes
The bare thread of life’s tragedy, the gloss and the glee
The comedy of its vanishing ideal, the empty mirror of its self
It looks through them and dissects every finite existence
Sees the role of time and the dimension of its space
The knowledge in the void, the cavity in the rocks
The meek surrender to the dissembled forces and strength
And the pride and the anguish and the terror and the pain
All these can change with the god-light is near
When the angel flashes her great golden beam
Sunlight and shadows though they sideways exist
Eternity merges the seer-light and the sea
Then from the fire is born the first miraculous fish
A precarious emblem of the sun-task and resurrection
An originator of the spiritual bliss
The food that supports the sustainability and growth
To her we pray to configure our lives.
