Sediment Hues - a solo exhibit by Satish Sharma.

Nov 27, 2017

The abstract expressionism flourishing through Satish Sharma’s work brings to mind the artist’s Godlike being. The canvas is the world he paints the abstraction accumulated inside the mind: the complex arrangement of thoughts, experiences, and sense perceptions. As Anne Sexton famously says, “I am God”.  Satish Sharma’s art show was held at Triveni Kala Sangam, Tansen Marg, Todermal Road Area, Mandi House, New Delhi.

Amidst this flux of abstraction in his art, there is a methodical approach which brings structure to his art. The works may be categorized into two sections: one consisting of large canvases that use flat colour and texture juxtaposed on the same picture plane, while the other consist of sets of small works that are intensely packed with texture and thick impasto paint. Impasto is a painting term that refers to the use of thickly textured, undiluted, paint that appears almost three-dimensional on the canvas.  

He, instead, lets the artistic poetry take hold of him like some form of divine possession and what happens is a repertoire of visual poetry: complex yet luring us into looking for meanings we would want to create our own sensual understanding (as Pablo Neruda talks about how poetic inspiration “happens” to him rather than him deliberately producing poems).

Sharma’s artwork is the kind that meddles with restrictions and breaks them through the undoing of a definite formalism in art. A revolution of sorts with the rejection of form; what fascinates the spectators is the unpredictability employed at these canvases. While reading and trying to decode the artwork, the spectator's’ mind is the ultimate “tabula rasa” as they get to draw their own reader-response understanding. Such fluidity in his art which evokes awe as well as presents the meticulous brilliance of order abstraction!

Satish Sharma teaches art in Triveni Kala Sangam after a career in advertising spanning 20 years. His art has been exhibited in various places and has earned him fame and accolades for his work in the art world.
