The possibilities for innovation and creativity in the field of art are endless. Ever since the humanity blessed with ability to think, it has been striving hard to look beyond the horizon in quest of unknown. Art world is not an exception especially in a place like India where  ancient civilisation, heritage enriched by its diverse culture, tradition, customs and religions. It provides boundless opportunities for  the artistic eye. There has been everlasting endeavour to capture this richness by many in various art forms. Having born amid this  richness and abundance, Kariyappa has incorporated these essences in his art work. Through his artistic vision, he has attempted to  depict rural culture of India with a hope of preventing it from going into oblivion or rejuvenate if it is perishing. In addition to  following the path laid by art Gurus, Kariyappa strongly believes that every artist should have his/her own identity, creativity and  social concern. He specialises in Acrylic painting on Canvas Media. Majority of his artwork reflects the day to day life, customs and  culture of rural folk of India with a special focus on Karnataka (one of the states in Southern India) where he was born and brought-up.  In his art work, the primary theme (object) of the painting is prominently visible and its background gradually leads towards the  invisible. Finally it appears that there is a harmonious interplay of visible with invisible leading to infinity. Over a period of time he has  cultivated his own unique techniques of brush stroke and knife stroke which have paved way for speed and rhythm to merge in  harmony. Use of vibrant colours is an attempt to truly reflect the original nature of the subject. Kariyappa has put a sincere effort to  showcase the exuberance and glory of rich, diverse Indian Rural Culture through his artistic eye.
Open until 12 April during office hours
