Visitors going round the exhibition of paintings and sculptures put up by the Visakha Art Society in Visakhapatnam.

VISAKHAPATNAM: Innovation is the key to providing newness or producing masterpieces in any media of art. For the connoisseurs, ‘installation art' is a special attraction at an exhibition put up by the Visakha Art Society at Visakha Museum on the Beach Road.

Conveying some social messages that are relevant to contemporary problems, G.V. Ramana Murthy, a city-based artist, has displayed his sculpting and painting skills through three distinct pieces.

Natural

Two black hands, going up in the sky screaming for help, jutting out of a heap of cigarette butts look very natural, as the ends have been physically burnt.

A black hand holding a cell phone near a ‘red' ear along with a dozen of them strewn all around sends a caution message on the side effects of using too much of this electronic device. “Our aim is to bring together all the up-and-coming artists of Visakhapatnam, provide them a platform for displaying their work so that some generous philanthropists sponsor the art forms to keep our culture alive,” says Potelu Srinivasa Rao, secretary of the 24-member association launched in 2004. Swarnalatha Mahapatro draws the attention of visitors through the attractive painting of every minute detail of Lord Krishna and Satyabhama's jewellery and dress. Years of research into the life of rural women distinctly makes G.S. Vasu's acrylics on canvas standout in the entire exhibition. Taking the hot topic of global greening as his topic, P. Srinivasa Rao displays a couple of his abstracts. World Royal Overseas League Award winner for self portrait as a fisherman MTV Prabhakar Satyanarayana converges several art forms to make a digital photo that looks like a ‘Fish out of water'.

The exhibition lasts up to October 25.
