Today is the last day of an exhibition by Akbar Padamsee at Priyasri Art Gallery. The exhibition has 40 large oils by the artist, some of them diptych works measuring 10ft. by 4ft., 14ft. by 5ft.
Akbar Padamsee is a master in his creations of Heads. Nobody can do them as he can. Actually, he improves upon existing realities, adds dimensions and somehow – as if by some magic – brings out feelings and primary character of the folks to whom the heads belong. Basically, Akbar’s approach is cerebral. We see a cold precision, an extraordinary kind of aesthetics which is in abundance. The artist’s heads sort of mesmerize the onlooker – they compel attention.
Akbar Padamsee has, over the years, remained one of our top-artists. When discussion on the subject of takes place, Akbar Padamsee figures in them always.
