ABOUT THE ARTIST

Description

Sachin Jaltare, hailing from a small town in Maharashtra, took a risk when he decided to quit his illustrator job at an advertising agency to take up painting full-time. Starting with figurative painting, Jaltare soon moved on to more abstract work. His art may be seen as a manifestation of the wild tango of Shiva and Shakti, dancing as it does between form and formlessness, energy and desire, the mortal and the divine. His mixed media works combine figurative and abstract elements seamlessly, hinting at metamorphosis even as they seem minimalistically complete in themselves. They feature mirages and fragments of women with cascading hair and rugged, chiselled men, set against abstract, moody landscapes coloured in a shadowy and nocturnal palette of voluminous black, stark white, bright coral, pewter and sunshine yellow. Traditional motifs and symbols such as petals or the bindu are found scattered across his canvases, and accentuate the spiritual, mystic charm of his works.
