Mystical resonance seriesAashok
A special thanks to Gargi Chugh for her deep understanding & appreciation for my painting.
In this series, the artist continues his exploration of the enigmatic and transcendent nature of the universe through the use of a black-blue-green palette of colors. His compositions are characterized by three main elements that breathe life into every piece of this series. First is the daring use of water-based colours which is the perfect setting for the second element, the thoughtfully placed 12 perforations. The 12 perforations symbolize the cosmic order and harmony on earth which in turn defines the vertical line running from the top to bottom connecting the different elements of the universe- the celestial bodies to the oceans. The hues of blue, green and black represent the ‘mystical dark energy’ of universe giving the paintings a surreal feel. Each of the three pieces in this series is beguilingly simple and an ingeniously detailed expression of the structured through the abstract. Individually and collectively, they resonate with eloquence at the cerebral level.
