Bridging the gap

Bridging the gap
Initially, Pyne painted with water colors and sketches of misty mornings and wayside temples, variously influenced as he was by Walt Disney and the art of Abanindranath Tagore. He counts Hals Rembrandt and Paul Klee as the other influences.

Pyne’s ‘signature’ style is shaped by his own experiences of solitude and alienation that he had lived through and aided by the pain and horror he had witnessed in the city of Kolkata during the 1960’s. Equally devoted to cinema as he is to painting, Pyne has also drawn inspiration from movies made by Fellini and Ingmar Bergman. Today, he is known as the foremost exponents of the Bengal School of art. Pyne passed away in 2013.

Sanchit Art represents the best of contemporary Indian art and it also aims to bridge the gap between artists working in India and abroad by establishing a platform to show contemporary European art in India while reciprocating the same with curated shows of contemporary Indian art abroad. The gallery has partnered Inves Art Gallery of Spain to show Picasso and Braque, among others, at the India Art Fair.  Ganesh Pyne, Jayasri Burman, K. Laxma Goud, Paresh Maity, Ram Kumar and Sakti Burman, Sanjay Bhattacharya, Satish Gujral, and Thota Vaikuntam are some of the artists to be represented this year.
