Born in 1969, Sachin Jaltare is one of the most sought after artists from Hyderabad, India. He has participated in over 30 group and solo exhibitions in a career spanning more than three decades. Jaltare’s acrylic and mixed media works explore the tango of form and formlessness, energy and desire, and the mortal and divine. He combines figurative and abstract elements fluidly to weave an engrossing narrative that is both authentically Indian and contemporary. Tapping into his innermost self, the artist gets immersed in understanding and re-establishing oneness with the ‘Absolute’.
Sachin Jaltare’s visual renditions seem to be in a continuous process of metamorphosis, yet, each stage is complete in itself. The visual vocabulary is minimalistic and geometrical. Unnecessary details and clutter get diminished, while the natural elements and figures make their presence felt, seamlessly merging into the space as part of a unified existence. The harmonious assimilation and distribution of colours and tints grant a soft gradation and apparent depth. Sachin Jaltare’s artworks exude a mystic charm, with the earthy and neutral avatar of the figures accentuating their ubiquitous appeal.
Sachin Jaltare’s mixed media works explore the tango of form and formlessness, energy and desire, and the mortal and divine. His recent paintings combine figurative and abstract elements fluidly to weave an engrossing narrative that is both authentically Indian and contemporary. Fragments and silhouettes of hauntingly beautiful men and women, representing Shiva and Parvati, are portrayed locked in a sensuous duet of lowered lids, trailing fingers and passionate half-embraces. The sylph-like women and the medieval knight-like men with blazing red tikkas on their foreheads are pictured against moody, nocturnal landscapes in charcoal, grey, black, scarlet and blue. The expressionist, acrylic canvasses are further flecked with esoteric symbols drawn from the natural world and Hindu mythology.
