‘Anguish to Ecstasy’ – My journey as a painter !
It is said that the energy is constant and it only changes its form over the time. If I am allowed to express my journey as a painter I will use this example to explain, how over the years my paintings have changed the shape and yet its inner energy has remained constant. Every true artist is filled with this insatiable and indestructible energy of creativity that makes him strive for the yet undiscovered frontiers of creation and it is the most alluring challenge for him; to which, me too is no exception. In this process I have experienced the artist’s ANGUISH to express his feelings on the canvas and then his ECSTASY when it has taken tangible form through the colors of imagination.
LUST for LOVE !
Painter Dinkar Jadhav has established himself as an artist who dares to walk on path less trodden. His journey to these romantic yet challenging places of creative excellence began with the ASHWA CHITRAMALA (the horse series!) few years back, which met with success and admiration equally! Having invested corpus invaluable hours, He has Resurrected his swift horses Flaming with Novelty an a companied and new form of muscularity, the Bull. There was sheer anguish and fierce passion in his earlier horse paintings which exploded through the colors and fearless strokes on the canvas.
