Explorations of the watercolor kind - Paintings by Prabal Mallick

Prabal Mallick is watercolorist by passion and temperament. he stated off as an oil painter vey early in his life. But there was a sudden shift in paradigm in his life and he switched to watercolors and since then he have been painting in watercolor. For his paintings he draw inspiration from nature, day to day life, and his experiences. So in general he do a lot of landscapes and a little bit of still lifes, cityscapes and what he call as life - scapes. he paint in a simplistic, realistic yet loose style which invites the viewer to 'feel' his work, rather than just see it. he put a lot of stress on tonal composition and like to play with colors to provide the feel. Play of light also is a major part of his paintings.

Art of Cycling - Independence Day Ride

Art of Cycling organised a special cycle ride to commemorate the Independence Day. The group consisted of school children, artists, professionals and senior citizens. The cycles were carried out of Pune in the support truck and the cycling started at Khadakvasla. The weather was perfect for cycling - hardly any traffic on the road and cool climate with an occasional light drizzle. The riders were stopping by to take pictures or do sketches. Breakfast was served at Vrindavan Society near Panshet. The spot offers spectacular views of the dam waters below and the setting was inspiring enough for everyone to do their sketching, painting and photography. The group decided to ride further to Panshet dam and by the time everyone reached the boating club, it had started raining heavily. The return journey saw the group carry back their cycles in the support truck which was large enough to accomodate all the cycles.

The wheel thrown anagama fired Jar of Secrets is a contained form of her initial struggle, a striving towards perfection without and harmony within. The hand built sculptural forms with richness in colour, smoothness in texure are a re-exploration of the circular form. The apple symbolizing core abundance and in energy, the pods and the sprouting seeds are infinite life forms in potential. The blooming lotus growing out of the mud alludes to purity, creation and expansion of the sould. Every grain of unfired earth, in the hand of the artist, is a seed waiting to burst forth.
