EXHIBITION Forms & Colours

Friday, January 09, 2015

Bright colours, strong lines and the use of expressive motifs accurately define R.B. Bhaskaran’s artwork. The Chennai-born artist’s style is heavily inspired by the history of illustrations, early modernist paintings and outsider art. His current exhibition, titled Forms & Colours, comprises of large-scale wall drawings produced on site, as well as a range of tiny etchings, which dabble in figuration and abstraction.

At the exhibition, you can expect to see subjects such as humans, fish, mountains and elephants come together to create an alternate universe. When you view the collection, you will get a sense that the overall theme that Bhaskaran has been gunning for is evolution.

Cats feature consistently throughout the artwork, and the bright colours that Bhaskaran has used stay with you long after you’ve taken a look at his paintings. But, if you are wondering why cats feature so dominantly in this collection, Bhaskaran tells us, “The cat and the fish represent the circle of life — one sustaining the other. The cat can also be termed as my muse. However, my renditions are not copies of the real animal; they are delineated forms that have a unique attitude with respect to the pose in which I render them.”
