Painting - Mix Media On Paper
It is essential we realize that our response to art depends on a great deal of touch memory and that this information comes to us through our eyes. Added to this is the principle of gravity which gives us a sense of balance and cohesion. We are quick to recognize anything that is top- heavy, lop- sided or in any way unbalanced or incoherent. Finally we are governed by rhythm: the regular rhythm of the human- beats, of breathing, of succeeding days and nights and as indeed of all the other vital rhythms as those of the oscillating atoms and the planets etc.
I believe the work of B.S Chadha responds to all that which is rhythmic, vital and structural in the world, and this means that the artist instinctively bears witness to the basic physical principles of root reality. His work may or not be short on technical rigour as in peak moments of art craft, yet his instincts are sounds. And these are the true substance of his spirals, curvilinear forms and other variations, especially those got up in commanding reds and allied hues. An artist of this genre does what in another art form, like the dance, the dancer does. There is sheer joy in describing circles and the figures of whirling eights.
As a craftsman of the finger- tips, Chadha appears to be in constant search among the myriad forms, structures, and variations of color in nature that reveal to us the particular aspects and degrees of rhythms and structures to which human sensibility responds.
