Pinakin is a painter, sculptor and an architect. Abstraction moves her. “The clearest memory is the intense resonance I felt with the abstract and the abstract aspects of traditional art. There were carefully preserved calendars at home of abstractionism, impressionism and renaissance art. These images were few compared to the wonderful images of Gods, myth and epic tales.
Throughout history, art has been created in the servitude of the Gods, patrons. Addressing the human concerns has been incidental or it has emerged as a subversive element of art. Humanism has been the impetus and main focus for art.
What the artist seeks is the communication with individuals – without the mediation of recognisable icons – without taking refuse in religions, nationalistic, colour or gender issues and without a narrative.’
What we see in Pinakin’s paintings is totally abstracted images with elaborate worth on them. And they are all bright – with many colours combining with one another with ease.
The exhibition is at Art and Soul Gallery from October 9. Contact Tel: 24965798.
