NAINI KUMAR

Enigmatic Visions
July 28 – August 17, 2017
Reception: Thursday, August 3, 2017 6-8 PM

The bright, effervescent paintings of Naini Kumar have the luminous effect of a stained glass window, appearing as if they are mosaics made of light and color. Painting with short, swift brush strokes, Kumar describes his compositions as bursting out of him in a rush of creativity, a synthesis of all the accumulated scenes and images he absorbs in his daily life. Working intuitively, he develops shapes and forms gradually, until the vision of the picture becomes clear to him. He mainly paints still lifes and flora, but he has also recently expanded to include purely abstract images. There’s a sense of continuity and movement in all Kumar’s work, and a feeling that the picture can extend beyond the frame. Kumar’s paintings reflect the artist's intense passion for and knowledge of art.

Kumar was born in Jhansi, India. He later extended his studies in the United Kingdom. Currently, Kumar and his family divide their time between the UK and India.
