Paresh Maity is a traveller on canvas. He has captured his journeys through the sand dunes of Rajasthan, the backwaters of Kerala, the canals of Venice, Egypt, Turkey, Japan in his works.
His exhibition — Symphony Of Silence — brings together his works in diverse mediums, including painting and sculpture. “The most important inspiration in my work is nature. As an artist, I observe, perceive and imagine forms, which I then express in my art,” he says. This new body of works sees the artist approach his subjects with new expression. “Though my colour palette has stayed constant, there is a modernity of forms and shapes. The focus is on the figure, specifically the faces, with their myriad expressions, closely cropped and juxtaposed with their surroundings,” he adds.
