On View at Pradarshak - Debut Solo Exhibition of Abstract Paintings by Siddhesh Rane
28th Jan. – 9th Feb.’13: Pradarshak presents Debut Solo Exhibition of Abstract Paintings by Siddhesh Rane.
Siddhesh is a young
artist, who has been diligently honing his skills as a fine artist over the
last 6 plus years that gallery Pradarshak has known him. Articulate, simple and
dedicated, his interest lies purely in colours and their juxtaposition in his
imagery. Unpredictable forms, surface levels, depths, lines, textures are all
part of his paintings that are non-representational, vibrant, and tend to connect
with the aesthetic aspirations of the viewer.
Spontaneity is a strong
characteristic with the artist. A free spirited approach to his canvas sees the
artist work as deftly with the brush as with a palette knife or roller; or even
with unpredictable materials like the sole of his slippers, as fancy would take
As the artist and his
canvas get further embroiled in their tête-à-tête, deft strokes build on
layers, some remove and destroy them, recreating unpredictable shapes, textures
and colour combinations. In this, multiple layers of depth and mystery are
established carefully maintaining the colour, temperature, shapes and balance
of the composition.
A candid submission by
this abstractionist, “In all this, first I guide the painting; and then I don’t
know when painting starts guiding me.”
