The three women – each individually defined by their distinct personalities – have always been moved by the plight of the needy and underprivileged. Bina admits to being touched by Kahlil Gibran’s saying, “It is in exchanging the gifts of the earth that you shall find abundance and be satisfied”.
Charity for Cancer-CPAA
Reaching the Stars-9th Jan 2010
Curated the Art Exhibition for the Cancer Patients Aid Association.
Venue-Hotel Taj-Crystal Room
Participating artists-Arzan Khambatta, Sanjeev Sonpimpare, Karl Antao, Sunil Padwal, Yusuf Arakkal, Pratul Dash, Rajendra Kapse and Julius Mcwan
Bina organised and curated the Art cum fashion show for the CPAA at the Hotel Taj
An art auction will add more colour to the evening. Eight artists have created works on the theme ‘game’, which will be auctioned for funds for the CPAA. “Since the focus of this event is children, I thought the ‘game’ theme would be appropriate,” says curator-cum-artist Bina Aziz of Tradition Art Gallery. Aptly titled ‘Not Just Child’s Play’ the exhibition features works by Arzan Khambatta, Julius Macwan, Sanjeev Sonpimpare, Sunil Padwal, Karl Antao, Pratul Dash, Yusuf Arakkal and Rajendra Kapse. “Literally and metaphorically, both creating an art work and battling cancer are definitely not child’s play,” says Bina, continuing, ‘The paintings will at the same time inspire you to face life’s challenges with greater determination and transport you into a world of fantasy, unfolding the child within. The essence of these paintings and the event itself is to show that with a strong mind and will power, nothing is impossible.”
Arzan’s sculpture ‘Snakes & Ladders’ is a direct representation of human life, replete with its ups (ladders) and downs (snakes); Julius’s ‘The Inside and the Outside’ is based on the image of the tarot card ‘The Star’; Karl’s work ‘Mother’s Unseen Love’ is a dedication to his mother who had cancer; Sunil’s ‘Pawn of the Pawn Structure’ is a metaphor for human beings, that all of us are ultimately pawns in a larger structure while Sanjeev’s ‘Way Through the Mangrove Leftovers’ is a philosophical work about life’s journey. Yusuf’s ‘Card Player’, Dash’s ‘Signifier/Signified’ and Kapse’s ‘Secret Game’ are eye-catching and enlightening too. Fashion meets art meets charity… the perfect blend for a perfect evening!
