7th Jan. – 18th Jan.2019: Pradarshak presents “Search” Charcoal and Acrylic on Canvas Paintings by Yuvraj Patil

Monochrome and sepia tones are two colour palettes in a work of art that almost 99% of the times leave an indelible impact on the viewer! Playing on this sensitivity, artist Yuvraj Patil recreates the memoirs of his recent interactions with monks at monasteries, capturing the ethos of serenity with charcoal and acrylic on canvas and paper.

Using a monochromatic palette and the strategic inclusion of the red hue, the artist charters out the essence behind the spiritual journeys of these ascetics. Striving to exemplify the subtle nuances of the concept of the eternal search for truth and peace, the artist depicts the back of the monk, always-on-the-move. 

In this, he alludes to identification with their routine, lifestyles, their struggles and their eternal quest for knowledge, peace and truth in life. As works of art, he touches the aesthetic appeal of the masses, as he delivers strong realistic depictions of spiritual fervour and religious sentiments of divinity and eternity.
