Arunima Gopinath’s brush strokes maybe conventional, but her themes reflect a novelty in terms of its expression. Her upcoming exhibition at Durbar Hall Art Gallery, titled Urvaram — A symphony of emotions which will begin on June 6 will truly reflect prosperity in terms of themes and medium of work.
The exhibition will showcase works based on the themes of motherhood, nature and emotions and will be presented through various mediums like oil paintings, acrylic paintings, watercolor, charcoal sketches and so on.
Arunima has always sought out artistic modes of expression and her creative endeavors do not stop with painting and drawing.
She has also tried her hand at poetry, story writing, essay writing, elocutions and so on. Despite drawing success in such diverse fields, painting has always remained closest to her heart.
“Painting has always been a passion for me and has always served as a medium that helped me express myself with great clarity. Nature and humans have remained my greatest inspiration. In terms of training, I have had the opportunity to learn from Art teachers, back in school, but it ends there,” said Arunima.
Arunima, who is an Assistant Professor in Physics at KVM College Cherthala, said, “I have been interested in art right from childhood. I have regularly won prizes at district level painting competitions from the age of 10.
My father extended a lot of support and gave me the strength to follow this passion. Now, my husband, Vinod, is the greatest source of support for me.”
Arunima’s painting exhibition will be on at the Durbar Hall Art Gallery till June 10.
