GETTING TO KNOW Abhijit Pathak

There are no story-telling pretensions in my creative process. My work marks a different approach to an abstract mode of communication making my painting visually energetic. Each of my canvases has remained a journey exploring proactively my perceptions, feelings, sentiments and translating them through the use of line, with a subtle play of colour. My work is evocative and reflective of the varying shades of human emotion. There are few important factors in my paintings which depict continuity from incompleteness from towards completeness. It is basically a process, which can stop at any time and there is no beginning and ending point. Painting is not a dialogue or a conversation but communion with line and colour. Line spreads by its own logic. My recent works are mostly mixed media but I always used different material like paper, cloth, napkins, rice paper, handmade paper, ink, pastel as a surface for all my art practice. Same time different medium and material had been used for my creation. We know that contemporary art is very experimental by along with that the thought and ideas are a priority in all the works. In my paintings, the forms are abstract but are taken from my day to day life. Normally I visualize the object close to me and I change their presentation in a very unconscious way and it create a different presentation in my work.
