An exhibition titled ‘Fuite’ will be inaugurated on 3rd March at Alliance Française de
Artist Shibu Natesan will inaugurate the exhibition at 5:30 pm.
“Fuite” features three artists – Gayatri Gamuz, Nathan Bartley, and Christian Uhlmann – who
have all traveled to the east and now live and work in Thiruvannamalai. The word “fuite” can
also be interpreted as a reference to the artists’ journey, as they have left their previous lives
behind and started anew in a different place.
The exhibition aims at presenting a diverse range of artists and artworks that provide insight
into how the idea of India has been perceived and interpreted by artists from different parts of
the world. Fuite is the first of a series of art exhibitions.The word “fuite” encompasses more than
just the act of fleeing or eluding; it also includes the ideas of flowing, leaking, and disappearing.
For example, in art, the vanishing point is referred to as the “point de fuite.”
The exhibition is open to the public till 17th March. Time: 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.
About the Artists
Gayatri Gamuz is an India-based artist who draws inspiration from the philosophical concept of
“Oneness” in her works. Her paintings, primarily watercolors and oils, combine elements of
eastern abstraction and western minimalism. Gayatri’s works presented in this show are
abstracts, which creates a sense of lifting the spectators in thin air. Her philosophy of stillness
and emptiness invites viewers to be present in the moment and understand the indivisible reality
that manifests in all things. Gayatri lives on a farm in Tiruvannamalai and draws from the sacred
hill of Arunachala for her inspiration.
Nathan Bartley intuitively creates a visual narrative through a wide assortment of mediums and
creative techniques, adding to the vibrancy of his theater of the absurd. It’s like a silent mind
leads to impulse and action, disrupting the notion of meaning through spontaneous creativity.
Bohemian Christian Uhlmann uses his passion for travel and imagination to bring to life the
spaces, architecture, and living creatures of India through intricate drawings on paper and
boards. His unique style employs saturated triadic color schemes and grey, adding depth and
nuance to his artwork
