Collective anxieties and turmoil surface often in an interesting way in this selected body of work. The exhibition explores how the transfigured, charged and complex imagery challenges rigid perceptions. With approximately one to four of each artist, the exhibition takes one through their unique journey from different phases of aesthetic formulations: from being chronicles, appropriating the roles of narrator, illustrator, image makers and activists to being myth-shapers. A diverse range of techniques, mediums and configurations has been used by the artist to constitute this presentation.

Master Stroke invites artists from all over India. It showcases work of different genres under one roof. Artists imagine the world from their soul and give it a body on the canvas through brushes and colours. Art is the inner vision of creative skills and imaginations of an artist, which they use to transform into novel aesthetic art pieces for their art lovers. Art can also be defined as a kind of meditation while creating art an artist undergoes meditation, speaking with their soul and mind and only after that the artwork become a masterpiece. Master Stroke is a collective effort of the curator and artists. They both work together to give it the right shape and meaning. And above all is the patrons who complete the journey of the art piece.
