Kovet.Art isthe brainchild of Saras Rachupalli. Born into a distinguished lineage of creative visionaries, Rachupallis grandfather was the notable P T Reddy, a key artist of his time who played a significant role in the evolution of the pivotal "Modern Art movement of Europe in India, and who in 1941 formed a group of Bombay Contemporary India Artists, branded as the now prolific Young Turks. Rachupalli has studied to a high level in technology and finance. Through her new venture, she delicately combines her two passions of art and technology in the curated solution of Kovet.Art.
Alongside Saras, is an expert team of leading art market experts including: Averil Curci, Director of Curation and Artist Liaison and Chief Art Officer Camilla Grimaldi, co founder of contemporary photography gallery Brancolini Grimaldi and advisory board member of Photo London.
Kovet.Art represents a finite number of individuals per year, filtered through various criteria to ensure a cohort of shared values. Sourcing artists directly from the leading art colleges through a stringent process of assessment, involving portfolio reviews, studio visits and interviews, Kovet.Art dedicates itself to building a strong roster of collectible leading artists, all of whom are outstanding in their integrity and innovative outlook, pushing boundaries of practice in credible and meaningful ways.
Delineating Dreams, the first exhibition in Kovet.Artsschedule will open in June 2020, featuring work by eight artists of exceptional talent, coming together to highlight the dynamism of the UKs emerging art scene: Kristy M Chan; Tom Faber; Max Gimson; Candice Jewell; Christopher Pearson; Giovanna Petrocchi; Loreal Prystaj; and Janet Waring Rago. In Delineating Dreams, the artworks move from figuration to abstraction with rich, dream-like representations that reveal a visual spectrum that is both conscious and subconscious. A strong, performative element comes across in gestures, juxtapositions and arrangements. In both the human body and the natural landscape, the known and familiar come up against idiosyncratic interpretations that are often strange and unsettling. By manipulating the organic world, these artists make usreconsider our environments and the emotional impact they possess. Intensely subjective and often imbued with the qualities of Surrealism, the exhibition features work ranging from photography and painting to printmaking.
The next Kovet.Art exhibition will take place this Autumn and will focus on themes of creativity in quarantine.
