25th Feb – 9th March 2013 : Pradarshak presents Debut Solo exhibition of Abstracts by Yogesh Murkute.

Helping the young upcoming artist take his first tentative steps in the professional scenario of the art world, gallery Pradarshak has begun year 2013 with enterprising young artists, who have been honing their artistic talent since the last 5-6 years and are now ready to make their mark on the professional front.

Each of the debutante talents has been distinctive in their make-up, style and deliverance and we hope that they reach higher echelons in the world of Indian fine art.

Yogesh Murkute is a young lad from Mumbai, impacted by the introspective musings of his intellect and prone to depicting them through allegorical representation in the abstract form.

Inspired by the linear quality of the amorous cave paintings that form the silent-speak of a rich Indian aesthetic, Yogesh attempts to recreate the naturally evolved forms within macrocosms of human psyche and the eros. In doing so, he makes use of his hands and fingers rather than any mechanical objects.

With an attempt to bring the ingenuity of the erotic in his works, while drawing the smallest or the largest form, the attempt is to enforce the instinctual passion and sentiment of lovemaking into every line. The works encompass the forms emerging from the vital energy of human mind and emotions.  The energy of creation thus encompasses all colour or is colourless; it being unknown, his works are achromatic, in white and black.

“According to nature, there are certain anxieties formed within a man and a woman, shapes related which become my works, as I try creating the utmost pleasures of love,” says the artist.

  1. Yogesh Murkute's debut solo exhibition of paintings at Pradarshak is inspiring and soul-searching. The use of black and white unlike in the traditional manner speaks volume of the distinctive style the artist has embraced. Though there is an element of eroticism in his chosen subjects as depicted on his canvas, it is difficult to deny that there has been also a deluge of sublimity which mesmerize us, the viewers. It is more so when we know that instead of using regular tools, he has engaged his hands and fingers in executing the works which is why his works bear a authentic 'humane touch'. Yogesh demands compliments from us and we are obliged to do so.
