HYDERABAD: At a glance the paintings by Sachin Sagare appear to be copies of each other given they emerge from the same colour palette. But look closely and they are as different as the women thus painted. The colours that dominate are: red, turmeric and charcoal. The flame of life burns brightly through the canvases that adorn the walls of Art Walk Way, Park Hyatt. Titled ‘Tellurian’ the art exhibition will be on till November 19. Gallery Space has collaborated with the luxury hotel for the exhibition.
The paintings announce flamboyance, yet are amalgamated with a sort of serenity that seem to flow from their lines and dots. What catches the attention of the viewers is the beauty of the women celebrated with much simplicity. The artist depicts their daily routine through various hues. They go about their tasks smoothly yet their bodies are caught in a deep resonance. The presence of birds and flowers lends vivacity to the works. The finesse is evident in the swift sweeps of brush strokes.
The artist himself hails from Sholapur, Maharashtra. And no wonder that the women in his opuses are from his town. He shares, “I wanted to paint women from the working classes. Then I decided to mix sophistication in the paintings. They might all look similar, but if one looks closely, the difference is there and each woman is different from one another.”
In all, there are 22 artworks. Sometimes the artist deviates from his bright colour choices and takes on the canvases painted sea-blue or hazel-green. They provide serenity amidst the riot of colours thus balancing the warmth and coolness of an artist’s imagination. Another interesting aspect of the exhibition is that the women are shown in groups as if moving forward, understanding each other problems in silence. A silence that speaks.
