REFLECTIONS OF MIND

Solo Show

REFLECTIONS OF MIND

 

Perception is a realization arrived at through the complex operation of mind and body. Body we know, but what is the mind? Is it a myth...a metaphor…or a mirror that engineers ‘myriad reflections’ unearthed from the inner subconscious fused with the mundane realities? How deep is the mind that thinks beyond abyss? Many times we think who are we….why are we…what are we ….and search goes on deeper and deeper…self introspection, self-observation of conscious inner thoughts, desires and sensations; these inner reflections of  mind, thinking, reasoning and feelings are the main fulcrum of  Shailesh Achrekar’s recent paintings.

His unusual medium metallic laminated finish on ply is an absolutely pertinent medium for exploring the ‘reflections of mind’, as on changing vintage point, it creates delicate ‘form shadow’ that transforms in to a Cast Shadow’ and another figure emerges from beside the main protagonist…‘the self’… as if separating the ‘physical self’ from the ‘non-physical’ one. The transformation of a ‘form shadow’ in to  a ‘cast shadow’ do not take place literally, but the hide-n-seek metaphorical ‘trap’ Shailesh has laid for the viewer involves blocking of direct light reflection from picture surface to the viewer, thereby showing him/her only a single or both the images together from different vintage points.

The effect he aspires to achieve is difficult to gain even after repeated layering and many complex processes. But he is successful in this painterly jugglery and has achieved cinematic effect of splitting a single images in to two on a two dimensional surface. About his medium, he say ‘As my main concern is to explore the ‘reflections of mind’, I was looking for a kind of medium where ‘reflection’ will appear as if it is splitting…separating from the ‘single image’ on the picture surface itself, like on a cinema screen where image splits into two and the ‘inner self’ resist what ‘outer’ realities compel ‘bodily Self’ to accept’.
