PRAKASH GHADE

Artist Statement

When my soul and my skill merge seamlessly that’s the time I create art that is elegantly timeless and beautifully direct, which manages to capture everyone’s attention. All my paintings are creations out of my love for nature, I always try and show the intricate detailing and honest capturing of all that I sees around me in staid black and white.

Silence is the sap that rejuvenates life. It is the source of eternal life. Corruption, distortion, terrorism have made life miserable where people are missing their calm mind and soul. They have forgotten the true purpose of their life. Through these recent works of mine I am trying to spread that silence.

I have chosen to work with Pen & Ink, to capture the characteristic qualities of my subjects. I use unique techniques of hatching, cross hatching and stippling in my works.

In silence and stillness

Blooms the power of oneness

Inseparable to view,

The world from you,

Each dot and line,

Holding the force and the might.

The multiplicity we see

The unity of his Light.

 

PRASHANT PRABHAKAR PRABHU

The road towards a temple for a devotee or way of secluded meditation for a monk. Both paths are long and winding. There are turns, ups n downs, hopes and doubts. The journey is also joyous as the destination will be.
As an artist I paint a lot. I also meditate as per my ability. They both are interrelated in some ways which I am yet to understand. Or may never be able to. Over the years my paintings have dropped the clutter of subjective details, the need of realistic renditions. They now depict actually very little. The places in these paintings are inspired by what I see on my numerous travels. Though I paint on locale, find that tradition of very little value. Over the years, I see my paintings get simplified, minimalist and large by watercolor standards. They are landscapes in a sense. Yet they are way different than landscapes on normal traditional path. I like to think they are compositions of heritage precincts and Himalayan landscapes I visit.
The monks, prevalent in all paintings are miniscule size-wise in comparison to the mountains or the temples. Maybe it shows the enormity of the distance and also of the faith. The path they tread on is as fluid as my medium of expression. And the purity of the devotion is as transparent.
Being from Mumbai, I was born in sea of constant chaos. The viewers in Bangalore, whom I am presenting my works after a gap, will hopefully find a quietude in them, lacking in both cities. The journey has been long , with more than 2 decades with watercolors and winding through many genres. I hope you find these minimalist compositions and my way of leaving things unsaid, pleasing and peaceful.
