Artwork In situ.....by Manisha Vedpathak

Came across the word "In Situ" in one of the artists blogs.
I did know about the virtual gallery but didn't know the word In Situ.
Out of curiosity searched for this word on google and found
out that in art, In Situ means a place where the artwork is
installed or exhibited. Its more of a realistic visual tool for artists.
 For eg, photograph of your art in a living room showing a portion
of the living room instead of just your artwork.
This will give a new dimension to the presentation of the artworks,
giving people the "visual" of how art fits in the environment which
will help them make art choices.

For days I was trying to find out a way to display my
Artworks in situ. I came across some very good softwares but
 none of them were free. I wanted some free online software to start with.
A few months back, I finally found one which
 you need not install and was free. It's a great app for artists.
This site is called  www.ohmyprints.com
Here are the photos of my recent artwork in situ.

An abstract by Manisha Vedpathak


A new abstract painting , a big one after a long time.
Painting of circles , sacred circles, circles of life.
My circle story.... entangled circles depict life circles. There are layers upon
layers ,texture...Though texture is not seen in the photo very clearly.
The rectangles in red and green depict the paths in our life.
 Sometimes  we have one or more paths going in the same direction and
 its our skill to choose the right one. Arrows show that 
sometimes we are fortunate to have direct direction in life , where we have to lead.
My elder daughter, Janhavi, likes creative  writing. I asked her if she
 could write a few lines for this painting. And this is what she handed me....

" They say life is a cycle, you are going to end up where you came from. 
These cycles are often entangled. There are directions, the first 
which is inevitable, the second which we choose. The first is
 human development which starts from infancy to old age. 
The second is the direction which build us as people. This direction
 is full of paths we choose that moulds us. Surely, a person
 choosing to be an actress will mould herself differently than 
someone who plans to be a writer.We will see an ocean of paths,
 but the skill lies in choosing which suits and shapes your life the best".

Do write me if you liked this writeup or if you have some other 
perspective of my painting. Couldn't find a good title so decided
to post it any way till I find one. Would appreciate if my readers
could suggest one.
