Event Description : EXHIBITION "Colour Kinetics" solo show of Paintings by Manoj Kachangal

Over the past two decades, Manoj Kachangal’s artistic output has been dominated by visions of tangled brushstrokes and limpid landscapes. Dense thickets of lines obscure distinctly divisional backgrounds, entangling the human eye in webs of wandering tendrils that invite full contemplation of what lies beyond. 

“By emphasizing the hand of the artist through horizontal sweeps and zagged brushstrokes, Kachangal explores broad themes of chaos, catharsis and rebirth in his work, while silently challenging perceived boundaries between abstract and landscape painting. In the world of art    Kachangal is a neo abstractionist,” states art critic Uma Nair. 

Kachangal’s use of colour overrides all other elements in his work in order to blur boundaries, and to allude to ideas beyond the frame. As they have no specific geophysical location, his works are often referred to as abstract landscapes. Although there are no clear demarcations between land and sky, there is a hint of reality, a semblance of authenticity which possibly stems with his preoccupation with Nature. These works, however, are dotted with abstract symbols – a landscape that is a tone of divided harmonies– that define the view of experience in abstraction. 

Speaking about his work the artist says, “I have always maintained that you don’t consciously follow a certain style or genre. I feel it’s not me who does a painting: I start applying paint, and then at some point the painting takes over. It starts demanding its own colours, lines, shapes. It is as if someone else’s will is at work. So I don’t really know whether it’s me who does the painting or they come into being on their own” (in conversation with Ratnottama Sengupta, Doors of Perception: The Art of Manoj Kachangal, Bharatiya Jnanpith, New Delhi, 2008).
