Art is for me a very important thing in my life, Attending artshows, fairs, is my passion. This is my work by charcoal on canvas.
I always want to express what I see and what I feel.
Nagpur-born Madhav Imartey has remained fascinated by disused and defunct objects. With a background in classical music and art (JJ School of Art, Mumbai) collages form an intrinsic part of his artworks, using postcards, railway tickets, inland letters among other things. Jesal Thacker, curator, finds that the Mumbai-based artist engages with various aspects of movement – organic, conceptual and subliminal, and the exhibition attempts to trace this synchronised visual formation. A takeaway is that Imartey doesn’t fall into complete abstraction, rather concentrates on the result of the elements that combine into a form.
