    Here are some paintings I have done over a period of a month or so.
    Almost all the paintings have a connecting concept, which however at times is subtle and overtly shown other times. Like the Doll paintings have a concept of growing out of innocence.

    Hey bhanu, good to see some more work of yours. It is certainly starting to take some kind of focus - starting to give indications of where it's natural centre of gravity lies.
    From these paintings just posted and what I've seen of your previous work there are two things that strike me which may or may not be of use to you since they are, after all, my subjective feedback.
    1) You seem to enjoy an option where you can paint with a strong figurative finish yet be able to switch to a highly gestural abstract language as the mood takes you. The floating dolls heads have given you a perfect subject allowing you to do that quite naturally and without the feeling of forcing the situation.
    2) Subject wise you have a preference for themes of antagonism which alow you to give vent to a highly energetic temperament.

    These two thoughts seem to be connected: they define the problem that is common to us all: finding the subject that allows you to speak as naturally as possible - like a coat you hardly realise you have got on.
    When we find this subject from time to time it helps us to get a clearer glimpse what kind of pictorial language comes naturally - and which, in turn, helps us dscover our 'subject'. The two are annoyingly caught up together!

    These recent works are giving a strong indication of this and are a real development for you. The best, in my view, and apropos of what I've said above is 'Siamese' and the weakest is 'Innocence.. Lost?'. Reason: The 'Innocence' painting is too literal in its theme, even though those scissors are very well handled in relation to the heads. 'Siamese' is much more interesting in the way that it delivers its theme by way of the plastic means of expression itself - the relationship of the heads to the dipytch (two canvases stuck together) is pictorially intiguing and sets in motion a free fall in one's mind. A similar situation goes for the 'Siamese, apart' but not so intense.

    In other words my favourite ones are those that do not illustrate their idea but remount it, re-invent it in plastic terms. As an example of what I mean; the small thumbnail detail of 'The Catch' does everything it needs to and is a stronger painting for it. The extra figure is merely 'illustrating' the painting's message which is delivered much more potently, succinctly and mysteriously in the thumbnail where this extra figure is cropped off. If the thumbnail was the complete painting, it would be my favourite overall. But remember, this is just my opinion.

    Looking forward to more!

    I agree

    I absolutely agree. The close up of "The Catch" really caught my eye. The implication of another person pulling on the tethers is much more powerful than actually showing it.

    Good work though!

    Thanks for the long crit , Chris, I really learned a lot from it , actually I reread it a whole lotta times to get a different perspective on my works, which sometimes I am too myopic to see. So thanks a lot.

    JUA-Hehehe, I agree too with Chris, Thanks.

    Gax- Thanks Bro , for all the love.

    TightROpe FIguRative

    Heres another Update for you guys, Its called tightrope(figurative),
    its about the tension that sustain existence, the tension of dimensions, liek the dimensions of the artwork that restrict an artist but at the same time liberate him to make endless visions come true within that limited realm.
    HOpe to get some feedbacks .And I hope you guys like the works too.


    Just about!

    Dragon masked mickey mouse carrying a doll head

    Have you ever noticed how dark and fascinating chinese dragon and tiger masks are?
    And how much horror there was to the humorous b/w mickey cartoons?
    And Yknow what, doll heads arent all that cute, try having a look at them during twilight hours.
    SO, here we are , with the image of two sides of the coin,
    horror and humour , lavish and grotesque and innocent and deviant.
    ENjoy the show!


    Much Love,
    Bhanu Pratap

    ----------------________----__________-___________________-------

    Two experimental paintings (sorry for the bad scan)

    Dealing with intrusion of space , how something so small can affect the whole space around it. It somewhat perplexes me how bothered we are with cockroaches and flies , but we in our metros live in such small spaces, where theres always a lack of private space(while we more and more fight for Me-time and Me-space). Ironical , hehehe.

    Hey bhanu,
    I must have missed this last time you updated. Good to see some more work of yours again.
    I agree with Darjan Jurincic that 'Boxed In 1' is is one of your best works yet - it brings together much of what you are looking for in a very dense and 'complete' image.
    The 'formal music' side of your work speaks strongest to me. For instance the fourth drawing down (last but one) is extremely potent regarding that arch of linking bodies. A sort of writing with forms that is in tune with your temperament and allowing you to speak without the literary associations holding up the works.

    Thanks Chris
    I Do think that I am a better draw-er than painter, and that's the reason I dont want to completely rely on drawing when I paint. I know this sounds odd, but I feel the need to seperate drawing and painting in content and execution, only at the core they are similar, I dont think it can be any other way. So I have tried to get the music and lyrical qualities are to be attained differently in these mediums as I do feel that they are the surface not so similar. I am happy when I can get that. So thanks a lot for making me talk and think like this with your crit.
    Please keep visiting and enlightening me.

    Has it ever happened to you?
    you have this scrap of paper lying infront of you , and you just mean to play with it, just having some harmless(sometimes) fun, but a freak accident happens and vI iola , some nice work comes out, thats what I felt happened with this painting, its a rather small canvas, just 10 inches in breadth and 2.5 feet in length.

    Enjoy!!!

    TWICE IN A BOX


    Medium - ACrylic on canvas(2 canvas) , and Alternate installation

    These canvases are latest in the series that I am working on, I am trying to portray the canvas as a box(cuboid like shape) from which the art wants to liberate, the boundaries are always tense with action, but it always holds the art captive, In this installation what I am also try to present is the boz like shape of the installation which reiterates my introspection on the box like feel on canvas .
    Hope it means something to you too.

    Hey guys I am uploading these inked pages for a graphic novel tentatively titled GRaffiteethat I am currently working on as a pitch, the comic if written and drawn by me , Bhanu.
    The story is about a graffiti artist and a case of serial murders.
    I know these look rough, but I do intend to keep them this way, actually I am trying to make them look cramped and too busy, but thats what I am trying to depict the life in the city(delhi) as.

    ENjoy!
