Art in Art
Art in Art
Description
From The Jacket

Position of the Creative Arts in Society ralses certain questions in the minds of people, specially those who are concerned with them. Why art and its need for human expression? How is art to be evaluated? What are the different levels on which expression through art takes place? What separates good art form bad art? How does art document and communicate? What is beauty and how do recant trends reflect its changing connotation? Difficult as these questions are they need to be answered in a way which makes art more meaningful.

After wielding the brush playing the sitar interacting with other creative arts administrating and teaching for decades Omprakash Sharma has put together all his experience to present a holistic view of the Arts. Thus the ideas expressed in his book are of someone who has himself been involved in the process of creating art its ecstasies trials and agonies. This lends the book a purposeful subjectivity. At the same time the numerous references or observations made by others in their creative journey impart to it vital objectivity.

The creative Arts have generated tremendous interest and dialogue in the past few decades. Therefore such a book was greatly needed and it is hoped that 'Art in Art' will bring the necessary perspective.

Preface

Art In Art is written for artists, teachers and students of different Creative Arts art administrator art critics collectors and connoisseurs as well as for those who wish to know about art and its and its creative process. Being a practising painter myself which meant going through personal struggles for the past more than four decades paradoxically, it was not easy to reach conclusions about art and its creation. My aim is not to remove the confusion which us widely prevalent in all the creative Arts, but bring awareness. I have preferred to share the knowledge rather than prescribe any formulations.

I have mostly used well-known names and events to illustrate different points of view in order to facilitate the readers. There are of course many others who have also contributed equally to the magnificent world of arts.

In writing 'Art in Art', I gratefully acknowledge the help of: Eva Joutsen, from Finland who keyed-in the manuscript into a computer to start with. My son, Yogeh Sharma who diligently completed the process. He also inspired me when I sank into dwell period. Peter McManus freelance writer who initially spent several hours to pep up the language. Suneet chopra art critic, who conducted reading sessions with our friends. Gop Gajwani, who in spite of pressures, found time to design the book with love. And of course Shakti Malik, who enthusiastically published it in a short time.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
