Art by Buwa Shete ...

I have been loving the works of Pune based artist ... Buwa Shete ... at quite a few of his shows, I have come soooo close to picking up his paintings from the mother and child series...



... the subject matter is so simple ... I think very personal for me at this stage of life ... but its the way he uses colors that makes you stop in your tracks to have a look at his work ...

... ofcourse some of the moments he captures ... make your heart melt ...





... I especially love the way he creates the play of light on his subjects ... I don't care much for technically and artistically right sounding jargon ... so if I can tell you simply,that ... I love how he uses the turquioses and bright reds,  in different paintings and highlights the edge of the faces and noses of his subjects ...  Aahhh! I know some  of the art  critics  would be rolling their eyes at such an art review ... but this is how I look at art ... in the simple ways I relate to it ...
I wonder if  the works of Buwa Shete may interest you ... how about  introduction to more Indian artists, fanning your art interest... would you like to see more of my favourite Indian artists on my blog and hear me talk more non artsy jibberish  ... :)
Would love to hear from all of you ... all your thoughts ... and lets talk more about... art ... you ... and me ...:)

Patricia Torres said...

oh my gosh!! this mother and child series is awesome.. I love the light and the colours.. so bright.. bold and beautiful.. 2nd ones my fav as well.. :-)

Loved the Painting series...yes i loved the color, the play of light between the subjects, etc...but what touched my heart is the unconditional love that shines through, between the mother and child, and also it was something all women could relate too. Why didnt you pick up the painting, when you came across it? You should have...esp when you could relate the painting to the lovely bond you have with your lil one...And yes, it could be a bautiful keepsake for Sarah, when she makes a home of her own...ok i am now rambling....:-)

Emreen said...

Wow ! First of all a big hats-off to the artist for doin a mother-and-child "series"... Such bold colors... The paintings are awesome...

Rajee,

This indeed is a very nice attempt from your side, and you are actually doing a favor to us all art lovers , who do want to know about the current breed of Indian painters but do not have much access to such information. I loved the current post and also savored the last post as much which was about Chugtai MAR. Please do keep the series on , and I definitely would look forward to more in this category.
Take care ,

How beautiful! I think the 2nd and 3rd are my favourites! Would definitely like to see more art posts. After silently following you for ages, I have just started blogging as well :) Only have around a few posts as of now... but would love to have you drop by!

Kamini said...

Lovely theme and equally lovely paintings Rajee! The colors are so striking...thanks for introducing this artist to me. The second I think is my fav.

I was thinking of writing something about this collection, but I change my mind. I will instead mail you what I think should be done.

Sakala said...

I love his work. I like that you do not use long arty words, like provenance, etc to explain the art. It simple you like it...and that is good enough to buy a peice according to me.

Rajee Sood said...

Hi Anpu,

Hi Sakala,

And I really am not into the arty -party circuit ... so I guess I do get away by living with things ... the simple ... 'I like I do it' way ... :)

Oh, its beautiful! I hardly understand the abstract kind of Art but the paintings on subjects, like Mother and Child, touch my core.
Art critics may scoff but whatever you have written sounds pretty esoteric to me.
Your aesthetic sense is remarkable. It shows in the kind of passions you have. I may not understand some of the stuff you show but i love all of it.
