Rahul Wagh

Rahul Wagh’s paintings are known for their diverse abstract forms. Born in 1982 in the cultural city of Pune, situated in the south central Indian state of Maharashtra, Rahul Wagh completed his diploma in fine art from Pune University. In his work one can see an ardent desire to represent colors and forms of nature which he imbibed from childhood experiences in his village. He experiments with light and bright colors to create luminous micro-abstract forms which drift on the canvas. One can see the stylistic impact of Jackson Pollock in some of his more vivacious abstract work but in others his independent approach appears explicit. His present work, on display in our collection, represents two distinct phases. In the initial phase his work shows abstract organic forms, which are basically the artist’s experimentation with the free flow of color and his reluctance to interfere in this process. The second phase also represents similar innovation but with a different approach. To give horizontal or vertical flow to the colors, Rahul draws miniature abstract forms to fill the blank space between two lines. The artist in his own words describes this as an attempt to show the interplay between visible and invisible space, as we sometimes perceive in the light when in one moment millions of particles appear to be drifting in the air and in the second moment they disappear. Reality is basically what we can see, what we can prove by our senses. But in Rahul’s work you can feel that this limitless world around us has much more depth than what our senses can perceive and thus all the beauty is the beauty of incomprehension and all the sorrows are the punishment for our ignorance.
