Event Description

Ashoke Mullick’s recent works in this exhibition bear signs of social consciousness. Modernistic approaches along with the traditional cultures are intertwined in his works. Ashoke Mullick has captured the various stages of the development of the city through his works. His conscience has been deeply influenced by Picasso’s kind, in which the visualinguistics were influenced by the awareness about social situation of human beings. Mullick has also matured as a painter through the ages, his style of work has changed with time & he has brought in greater horizons in his works. He uses oil & acrylic as his medium on canvas and he is equally proficient in the monochrome drawings on paper. In this exhibition at Aakriti Art Gallery named ‘Lightness of Being Anxious’, Mullick is showcasing 30 paintings (oil & acrylic) and 10 paper drawings. Apart from the change in the composition of the paintings, Ashoke Mullick has also experimented with colours. His latest works bear more of darker hues, unlike the previously dominant yellows, whites, oranges & blues. In the ongoing exhibition, the characters as portrayed by Mullick are lonely creatures with distinguished social positions. These creatures dream or hallucinate with open or closed eyes; their hope, aspirations, desperations and unfulfilled wishes exasperate through their physical existence.

The exhibition can be viewed online at www.aakritiartgallery.com

Exhibition from 18th February till 13th March, 2010.

I remember meeting the fine and amiable Ashok Mullick when he was
the artist in residence at Kalakriti art gallery in hyderabad.I went to see him along with Mr.Laxman Aelay,one of the well known painters in the city.
Ashok has mellowed quite considerably,while maintaining a vibrancy
of colour and depth of tone.Great going Ashok....PRINCE
