Working for last 25 years as freelance artist. In this exhibition he will be presenting the series of paintings on Flute, Realisation and Tree.
Kishore Randive's journey as an artist over he last three decades has seen many new dimensions, as he himself says, "Even an entire life-time is not enough to master art. I think therefore I am, I am, therefore I perceive I perceive and therefore I paint."
An artist who is charged by the profundity of his own vision and aims, filled with zealous fervors and creative energy, which has led him down many varied creative paths. He has produced films, acted in dramas, written screen plays, short stories, poems and even been an art critic for news papers. As a young artist, he was filled with lofty ideals, seeking to tear down facades and discover new values. For instance in 1991, he did an exhibition with all the works in the colour black, quoting Reinhardt, "Painting is black. Sculpture is white. Architecture is colour". As his understanding of the fundamentals of colour grew, 'black' which is regarded by many as a negative colour which has everything.
While pursuing his G.D. Art from Sir J.J. School of Art, he held his first exhibition of paintings. Later he started working under Mr. S. Paloikar, the dean of the college, he came under the influence of modern art, particularly Kooning's work. He then did a post graduation in mural painting. During the pre 1980's, he used to maintain a diary of colour sketches. His own abstract work and the academic work that was prevalent at the art school, created a conflict within him. He thereafter worked under J.S. Haldankar and was with him for six years.
There is a lot of the dramatic in the artist, which reflects in his colourful palette. He rarely uses subdued colours. For him the understanding of colours and its nuances add a different dimension to his work. In this exhibition he is presenting his works on three series - Flute, Realisation and Tree. His Flute and Realisation is filled with vibrant colour and a deep sensitivity. The artist seems to have achieved a different plane, where one feels his deep connection with the 'flautist' capturing his mysteriousness, communicating something subtle with great Úlan, almost as him he were playing amidst a swirl of 'holi' colours! His Realisation Series is an ability to express his inner feelings in visual terms which is a mix between figurative and abstract. This multi-faceted temperament that gives him such complex insights, now finding his answers in a quieter more evolved self.... yet another dimension.
