1,BALJIT CHADHA— I am a Delhi based artist Now I have evolved a new techique- Baljit'( FLOAT ON COLORS) for all my paintings .
I grew up as a curious, investigative child helped by my parents’ encouragement to explore and to learn without fear and hesitation. The wonder and awe in God’s creation always held me spell bound. I ploughed my curiosity through love of creation and creativity. At a young age of nineteen years I sailed to a land called Japan that has for long centuries been spiritually bound with India. Like a sleepy rose the petals of my creativity opened as I drank like a honey-bee the nectar of ancient and highly evolved culture of Japan. Japanese art of painting is high meditation in feel and in expression. My Japanese godmother Ms Otha Miyoko a great Japanese artist was my first teacher. She affected my style and expression early on.
My journey in art continued and I evolved a style of art that has minimal gap in feeling and expression. Rapidity and quickness of expression in my art comes from the well of inner spirituality. My art is not planned, thought-out and cerebral it is based on spontaneity. Abstract Expressionism is a wider term and my art follows it in variegated dimensions.
In my art I experiment with different painting instruments and techniques. My dependence on brushwork is rather limited. I frequently and freely use spatulas, wooden sticks, masking, and sand-mix, push bottles and what comes handy in the moment. I use acrylic with mix media. I have developed acrylic based glazes that were possible earlier only with oil paints. The glazes impart a charm similar to enamel glazes.
My art journey finds depth and width in continuous experimentation, forays into the unknown and choosing challenging metaphors of expression.
Where my art journey will take me next I leave to higher forces. Presently I have already displayed 12000 paintings as a Wall of Divine Flowers in Delhi on n12-12-12-12hrs-12mnts-12sec.
NOW MY NEW SERIES IS CALLED --FRAGRANCE OF FLOWERS
statement by an ART CRITICS
He paints strongly expressionist abstracts. His works command substantial interest among art lovers and have formed part of many exhibitions. He uses less of brush more of different materials such as spatulas / wooden sticks & masking liquid/ tapes ,push bottles.and a special paper.
statement by an art critic
In the floral work of Baljit Chadha, his pathway began with basic flowers, in pen and
ink due to the inspiration of classic sumi-e (ink painting) during his sojourn in Japan.
He understood this as the simple, basic embrace of nature –“to pluck a flower and paint
it!” Pursuing this spirit further, he declares that “I do not believe in straight lines, rather
a spontaneous use of colour.” He is more known in artistic circles to date in India for
his abstract paintings. This series, thus introduces his 12,000 flower oeuvres. Earlier
he added colour and then fexicol to bind the ink. Currently, he has incorporated the
following materials into his process: watercolour, acrylic paint, as well as oil and wax
pastels. This melange enables a broader depiction of the living element of his floral
subjects, such that these blossoms spring to life off the standard sized Chinese imported
paper upon which he steadfastly works.
Chadha incorporates his personal embrace of abstraction within the depiction of
the ‘divine flower’. Thereby extending the spatial component and fertilising the
surrounding air with colour and stroke. His idiosyncratic method, reminiscent of spin/
action painting, is to squeeze the paint from plastic bottles.A pansy, gladiolas, lilies,
asters, hyacinth, to cite but a few, each painting is unique.
In spirit they are homage to Chadha’s passion to paint. Just as for the Old Master
painters of still-lives and floral subjects, each flower imparts his personal connection
and interpretation. The Mother of the Sri Aurobindo Society also penned a tome on
the significance and meaning of flowers. Chadha earlier had photographed flowers all
over the world, as part of his journeys and daily life. The kinetic nature of his paintings
departs from the photographic lens.
In consideration of the palette and use of materials, Chadha’s works bear a shimmering
sensibility akin to that of stained glass, a sort of translucence reflecting his rhythm of life.
One which he shares with the facets of nature he so consecrates on a daily basis, a true
immersion in this realm of his natural imagination.
For Chadha, this lexicon of intimate and universal beauty celebrates the diversity and
complex, ever startling web of interconnectivity of life. At its core, a true marvelling of
the adavaita, non-duality of humanity and the natural world which surrounds us, one
which we must heed to protect and admire.
