I am NEHA PATHAK , a painter and printmaker from india. The oeuvre of my works lies at the juncture where simplicity merges with bold, natural meets uncanny and where mundane life ties notes with dramatic implementations. Diligently selected subject matters of my works often hints at simple pleasures of daily life. A soft focus is on the objects which we either come across on a daily basis or which are quintessential in everyday activities, placed in related contexts. These soft focuses are highlighted through undefined sketchy brush strokes.
The visual language in my works refers to things that are pronounced straight forward. I like to play with simply put metaphors which at times surges upon the duality that exists within and out of us. In my depictions, aspect of relativity runs parallel at the multi dimensional contexts of objects.
‘Trees’, which are simple metaphors to something outer or free spirited and ‘house hold’ objects which can be assumed for inner or being trapped takes crucial place in my works. I intend to express the dichotomy which runs in most of common Indian people where they often find themselves struggling between the social norms and free wild individual spirits.
