The current exhibition of the works of artist Pankaj Kumar Singh is a cumulative display of the artist’s current muse. The event is a follow-up of his earlier shows at prestigious galleries over the last two years.
The works on display express a collective representation of perceptions gleaned from geometric forms, particularly the circle, with an inner eye-like centre point. Though reminiscent of a suggestive geometry, the works are fused into a pleasing palette of colours, which are blended loosely across the space and then concentrated with a hint of graphic outlines, thereby exuding a calming effect on the sensibilities.
There is a narrative playfulness behind the forms, allowing the mind of the viewers to go into expansionist thinking mode, where the ideas for the narrative are the input of each individual viewer. The works therefore establish a platform for sharing a conversation between the viewers and the artist, through the works on display.
An alumni of the Benaras Hindu University, Pankaj Kumar Singh has been an awarded the prestigious AIFACS Cash Award for upcoming artists. He has been a National Scholarship winner of the Government of India and has also been an active participant at alumni shows such as the Annual Art exhibition of the Faculty of Fine Arts at BHU.
His works have been displayed by the Kerala Lalith Kala Academy and the State Lalit Kala Academy, Lucknow. An insightful and strategic messaging angle through art was created when he visualised a telling poster for 21st century women’s issues, and for eye donations, among others, initiated by BHU. Exhibitions of his works have been held at prominent art galleries in Delhi and Kolkata. The artist currently lives and works in Delhi.
