Ever wondered how the marriage of different hues and shades of colours on a canvas could have a different effect on an individual’s persona? An attempt to find an answer to this question has been made by Nainika Singh. She has tried to find a plausible correlation between aesthetic response and forms of human behaviour. A Monograph on National Mobile Exposition titled ‘Psychological Parameters vis-a-vis Paintings Panacea’ was inaugurated on Sunday evening by the Deputy Chief Minister of Punjab Sukhbir Singh Badal. The exposition has been presented under the auspices of the Outreach Activity Centre of the Government Museum and Art Gallery,Chandigarh. The thirty colourful works of art have all been painted by Nainika Singh,a lecturer in psychology at the Government College,Sector 42. Each painting follows a definite theme. The various themes include ‘bonding’ and describe the importance of cohesion among the people’s thoughts,behaviour and action to ‘endurance’ which show the strength and vigour required by human beings to overcome the turbulent patches in life. An interesting theme called ‘women empowerment’ showcased the various strides taken by women in today’s social order and at the same time retaining their traditions.

Showing her works of art Nainika remarked,“Colours have a significant impact on human mind and they are perceived and interpreted by each person in a different manner.” On the psychoanalytic relationship exuded by different colours she further added,“The colour blue is a non-threatening colour and has a calming effect on the mind. It plays a significant part in religious beliefs and ceremonies. Similarly,the colour yellow signifies a cheerful disposition of mind. It is used to portray emotions like joy,optimism,intelligence,hope and liberalism.”

Sigmund Freud was among the first ones to study art in a psychoanalytic form. Freud believed that the unconscious desires and fantasies deviate from the internal manifests as the external on the canvas through the medium of art. Earlier,after the inauguration of the exposition,Badal was presented a painting of the Lawrence School,Sanawar by the artist.
