Ratnadeep Adivrekar, a Mumbai-based artist, has had his share of accomplishments in the art world. He has been the recipient of several prestigious awards such as The Governor’s Prize, The Harmony Award for Best Emerging Artist and the Bendre-Hussain Scholarship. After a ten-year hiatus, Ratnadeep is now showcasing his artwork in Mumbai in an exhibition titled Parallax Views. Thirteen pieces of artwork are a part of this show and the exhibit includes video installations, oil paintings and paper work. You can expect a literal and metaphorical representation of the term parallax — a displacement or difference in the apparent position of an object, when viewed along two different lines of sight.
Ratnadeep’s artwork draws influences from the history of art, politics, science and philosophy and presents a fair view of life from an artist’s eyes, with visual inspiration from the cultures of Mumbai and Berlin (the two cities that Ratnadeep has spent the most time in). Speaking about his exhibition, Ratnadeep tells us, “While looking at and absorbing different cultures, I realised that no way of seeing the world can be taken as definitively true; but that does not necessarily mean that all perspectives are equally valid, such as the concept of Anekantavada.”
