4th May’13:Pradarshak presents
Group Exhibition of “Friends of
Pradarshak” Phase II – Abstract Paintings.
Continuing into Phase II of our special exhibition for the “Friends of
Pradarshak”, Pradarshak showcases abstract paintings by the following artists:
Abstract Painting by Anjum Motiwala
Anjum Motiwala: Wielding the palette knife, this young artist uses oils and
watercolours to recreate the dynamic rhythm of nature through her abstracts. A
self-taught artist, Anjum started off as a fashion designer – perhaps a strong precedence
to the sense of colour and lustrous texture that she imparts to her canvases,
suffusing them with a lyrical vibrant quality that is high on visual appeal.
Anuja Paturkar: Showcasing
her musings in the non-representational genre, Anuja’s abstract paintings are
rendered in a layered application, giving rise to a bespoke artistic vocabulary
on canvas as well as paper. “Abstraction, for me, is the result of such a
creative process where one’s own heightened sensitivity for composition and colour
work in a most personal space - completely non-objective and
non-representational,” says the young artist. With colour as the ‘soul’ of her
paintings, one sees a hidden narrative that tends to carry a distinctive energy
of its own, attracting and engaging the viewer’s attention.
'Plumage Evolution' by Raosaheb Gagare
Raosaheb Gagare: An MFA
graduate from Sir J. J. School of Art, Mumbai, Raosaheb has mastered the art of
blending acrylic with enamel paint, creating a rich textural quality in his
works. He attempts various themes – universe, figurative abstraction, etc.; his
latest series being on ‘plumage evolution’. His work can be categorised as
decorative, with its precision-driven blend of colour and texture.
Sadhana Raddi: Her paintings are driven by colour,
composition and finally structure – strictly in that order. A double post
graduate in psychology, Indian culture as well as fine art, Sadhana delves into
the inner recesses of her being, trying to unearth what really drives a
painting – whether hers or any other artist’s. Incidentally, this
abstractionist with her partially-representational art is currently pursuing
her thesis in ‘thought processes that drive creativity’.
Painting by Sunita Pawar
Sunita Pawar: An upcoming
entirely with a colour palette of sombre hues like umber, black, white and
golden yellow and ochre, each painting is a juxtaposition of form and technique
using the palette knife in a very distinctive style. Sunita has accomplished
her Masters in Fine Art and continues to push her talent with passion and
Yogesh Patil:Diligent and hardworking, Yogesh predominantly
paints in small format. Playing with the line, dot, representational and
non-representational forms, his abstracts foray into an unfathomable realm
typical of an artist, where thoughts and actions blend to find expression on
paper and canvas, flirting with the medium and the psyche. Often monochrome
in nature, the abstracts speak volumes without actually conveying
anything. His works offer a platform for the evolution of deeper intellectual
processes in artistic thinking.
