Three Painters from Delhi – Forms and Patterns
Om Prakash Sharma is easier to interpret. His Forms with the Sky constructs vertical highly textured shapes against a seething background with skyline and sun impressively there on the canvas, as counterpoint to the abstraction. This is very good method of creating tension. Folk is confines to bold arrangements of three vaguely primitive patterns. Composition is totally abstract and successfully so in the inevitability of its interpenetrating and balanced colours, Relaxation is more fortuitous and sometime puzzling. Whisper is clever, its two female figure merge into or emerge from geometrical patterns scored in criss-cross fashion. the breast of one figure are red and of the other blue, this is brilliantly right within the created pattern.
