Lyrical Symphony .....

The elements and forms of nature exist in marvelous harmony and rhythm. They enthrall us and together create a music, which soothes the soul and inspires the mind in myriad ways.

The works of Prakash Deshmukh reinstate and celebrate the very essence of nature. The artist unravels the nature, especially the flora, and with it creates a soothing ambience. In his paintings human beings dive deep into the vicinities of natural beauty and musical magic. And, hence the trio, nature, music and mankind altogether exist in a peaceful and subtle ecstasy, in the works.

The artist with a well-adjusted and fluent hand constructs his compositions. The figures form an indispensable part of his paintings. They assimilate well with the flora, and seem absolutely poetic and lyrical in their stances and positions. The figures are carved out of rhythmic, continuous lines. In spite of having volume the figures also imbibe into them a lightness, which at times grants them the fantasized and surreal feel of floating in space. The colours are approached with a rather restricted palette as the artist often explores the intensity of analogous colour scheme and arrives at marvelous results. The over all impact of the colour application is a finished and bright look, which glitters like precious stones. In the various tints and shades he excavates a space where the flora appears and diffuses in the background, in a very subtle and soft manner.

The presence of musical instruments blends well with the natural elements and figures. They also add an essence of allegory. The male and female figures, when appear together, weave a pleasant and harmonious abode with each other. The figures with their half closed eyes seem to be caught in the magic of the moment, as they embrace the beauty of the surroundings with an open heart and soul.

The artist’s affinity for the traditional Indian miniature painting is apparent. He, in a very personalized manner, extracts influence from them and yet also remains modern and contemporary in all his works.

The artist chooses for his works the very captivating twilight zones when the sunlight is dim and everything is covered with a mystic and magical spell. In such time zone the ‘nayak’ and ‘nayika’, get drawn into a trance, where they become ‘one’ with the intricacies of music and nature.

They strum the strings and play music, which slowly spreads into the space like a scent, tender and strong, delicate and everlasting.
