BA­NARAS - THE REFLECTIONS – EX­HI­BI­TION OF PAINT­INGS BY SACHIN SAWANT

Citadel - - EVENTS -

Art2Day had or­ga­nized ‘Ba­naras – The Re­flec­tion’, an ex­hi­bi­tion by young pro­fes­sional artist Sachin Sawant from Kar­jat. The ex­hi­bi­tion was at Art2Day gallery on Bhan­darkar Road, Pune. Many artists have been at­tracted to the ma­jes­tic ghats of Ba­naras, and the mag­netic pull of the great city trick­les down the early morn­ing sky and set­tles upon the land­scape like vi­tal­iz­ing drops of dew, draw­ing many cre­ative minds to it. In these paint­ings, you find the view of the boat­man, med­i­tat­ing saint, boats sail­ing in the wa­ter and the ghat steps lead­ing to the wa­ter and so on. The paint­ings were vi­brant, en­er­gis­ing and mag­netic in pulling one to­wards these spir­i­tual dhams. Sachin’s child­hood life in the vil­lage in­spired him to ap­pre­ci­ate and create art. He has used oil on can­vas and created pho­to­re­al­is­tic works, which are a beau­ti­ful fu­sion of re­al­ity and il­lu­sion. His colour pal­ette pre­dom­i­nantly con­sists of whites, blacks, browns, and ochres, which at­tribute a pro­found and som­bre tone to his work. His brush strokes are well de­fined with attention to ex­treme de­tail. This was Sachin’s first solo show in Pune.
