The show will display forty works of the painter created at different points of his journey through the years.The artist invokes motifs from animal world, birds, contemporary life, picturesque sightings and spiritual existences. Lord Krishna, Lord Rama,  Lord Buddha and monks dance on his canvases in ecstasy and bliss. He believes that art is an expression of inner language. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The subjects are varied which he treated differently at different points of his journey. He deploys the idea of shringar from Natyashastra Shastra in every painting. He moves beyond the trance to the romance with maturing figures’ thought and struggle. The artist seems to have given enough thinking space to the spectator to understand the mood of the painting.The paintings deal with abstracts followed by the saranagata series (surrender to the divine). They are linked in more than one ways. His abstracts have a perspective and the natural force. The works are more an example of light and shade, and competing movements of organic wings and boat-like contrasts against blues, reds and mauve background.Where: Visual Arts Gallery, India Habitat Centre, Lodhi RoadWhen: Till 7 AugustTimings: 11 am to 8 pmlast_img
