His paintings exude a zeitgeist of time, the stillness of desert and the movement of life. The works look effortless yet emanate the expression and flow that the artist has tried to present. The colours are subtly bright and soothing, and makes for a good backdrop.
The exhibition is called Glimpses of Desert and the works are presented by artist J.P. Padaya. Through this exhibition, the artist will present the beauty of vast deserts in India.
The artist here is clear at his approach and beautifully brings out the simple action of people in rural India. The works done are figurative and the canvas is filled with oil and acrylic colors.
On his artworks, the artist has kept the background monochromatic and through this subject is given the complete attention. The art works highlight or one can say focus on the subject only that clearly sends out the message without any error or distraction. The portrayal of the rural beauty through artist’s deep strokes fills the canvas with life and the earthy background complements as well as enhances the beauty of the subject.
The artist explains “My works are simple in approach and bring you closer to nature. The artworks depict the vastness, calmness and beauty of desert.”
The frames capture the beauty and lifestyle of people in desert during their course of daily activities. While in one painting, Padaya has captured the curvaceous beauty with her herd of sheep, on the other are the relentless villagers stuck in a sandstorm.
Every canvas captures the moment beautifully and artistically, bringing about the beauty in daily chores as well.
“Every artist endeavors to bring out emotions and their point of view through their canvas and that is what J.P.Padaya has done using his strokes,” remarks Asheesh Sethi owner of Anyahh.
The exhibit is a spectacular event as the artworks on display are soulful and give positivity to the seeker. The exhibition is on display from 19th November till 20th December, 2016 from 11am to 7pm at Anyahh Art Gallery, New Delhi.
