भिलाई, 23 सितंबर, 03
रुक्मणी चतुर्वेदी को कचरे से सर्वश्रेष्ठ बनाने की कला मिली है। उसकी कृतियों को एक अनोखे एक्सपो में भीलियों को दिखाया गया जहाँ उसने भुट्टा (मक्का) और केले के छिलकों जैसे कचरे से बनी कलाकृतियाँ प्रस्तुत कीं।
The Risali-based artist’s exhibition was inaugurated by the General Manager (Town Administration), R.K.Agrawal at Nehru Art Gallery the otherday.
रिसाली-आधारित कलाकार की प्रदर्शनी का उद्घाटन महाप्रबंधक (टाउन एडमिनिस्ट्रेशन), आर.के.अग्रवाल नेहरू आर्ट गैलरी में दूसरे दिन किया।
Utilizing maize, palm leaves and different parts of a banana tree, like its leaves, flowers etc, Rukmani created impressive paintings and collages. She has created artistic representations of Goddess Durga, Bhilai Steel Plant main gate, nature, historical figures like Jawaharlal Nehru and Subhash Chandra Bose among many others.
मक्का, ताड़ के पत्तों और केले के पेड़ के विभिन्न हिस्सों, जैसे इसके पत्तों, फूलों आदि का उपयोग करते हुए, रुक्मणी ने प्रभावशाली पेंटिंग और कोलाज बनाए। उन्होंने देवी दुर्गा, भिलाई स्टील प्लांट के मुख्य द्वार, प्रकृति, जवाहरलाल नेहरू और सुभाष चंद्र बोस जैसे कई ऐतिहासिक लोगों के कलात्मक चित्र बनाए हैं।
Without using paint, the collages were unique and subtly crafted. Ms. Rukmani has been successful in making her artistic creations come to life.
पेंट का उपयोग किए बिना, कोलाज अद्वितीय और सूक्ष्म रूप से तैयार किए गए थे। सुश्री रुक्मणी अपनी कलात्मक कृतियों को जीवंत बनाने में सफल रही हैं।
Greatly impressed by the artistic skills of Rukmani, Mr. R.K.Agrawal expressed hope that the Expo will serve as an inspiration for budding artists of the steel city. Ms. Rukmani’s collection of 22 paintings was part of the joint exhibition of three women artists organized by Public Relations Department of Bhilai Steel Plant at Nehru Art Gallery. The other two artists, Ms. Kusum Lata Vaidya from Bhilai exhibited paintings made out of natural colours and water colours. Charcoal and pencil was the creative medium for Ms. Rama Dutt Joshi of Raipur.
रुक्मणी के कलात्मक कौशल से बहुत प्रभावित श्री आर.के. अग्रवाल ने उम्मीद जताई कि एक्सपो स्टील सिटी के उभरते कलाकारों के लिए एक प्रेरणा के रूप में काम करेगा। सुश्री रुक्मणी का 22 चित्रों का संग्रह, भिलाई इस्पात संयंत्र के जनसंपर्क विभाग द्वारा नेहरू नगर गैलरी में आयोजित तीन महिला कलाकारों की संयुक्त प्रदर्शनी का हिस्सा था। भिलाई की अन्य दो कलाकारों, सुश्री कुसुम लता वैद्य ने प्राकृतिक रंगों और पानी के रंगों से बने चित्रों का प्रदर्शन किया। चारकोल और पेंसिल रायपुर के सुश्री राम दत्त जोशी के लिए रचनात्मक माध्यम था।
In all her 13 paintings Ms. Vaidya used environment friendly colours of human emotions and nature while Ms. Joshi’s 9 paintings depicted the life of locals. Mr. Agrawal commended their creative efforts and congratulated the organizers for bringing such unknown artists to limelight.
अपने सभी 13 चित्रों में सुश्री वैद्य ने मानवीय भावनाओं और प्रकृति के पर्यावरण के अनुकूल रंगों का उपयोग किया, जबकि सुश्री जोशी की 9 चित्रों में स्थानीय लोगों के जीवन को दर्शाया गया। श्री अग्रवाल ने उनके रचनात्मक प्रयासों की सराहना की और आयोजकों को ऐसे अज्ञात कलाकारों को लाइमलाइट में लाने के लिए बधाई दी।
