A group show by four artists is on at the Nehru Centre. The show closes on Monday. The four artists have their own individual styles on perceptions. Chikmath F.V. appears to prefer a realistic mode. Images in his paintings are well-arranged and that makes for a good composition. He uses bright colours – red, yellow white and they produce a good visual appeal.
Sudhir V. Phadnes chooses some fiery subjects. Maybe his paintings can be regarded as semi-abstract creations. The fire spreads all over the canvas.
B.P. Karnik uses mild hues. There is strength and precision in his works. Varying shades provide the contrast.
Ramesh H. Pachpande changes the human face and figure – probably to bring our more emphatically what he wants to say. In a painting, we see the face of a woman elongated – with a long, long nose. Where the mouth is, there is a tiny pout.
