About This Exhibition

Gallerist Sundaram Tagore said, "We are excited to present works that are very unique – they are from our Asian artists, representing Korea, Japan, India, and Uzbekistan. Seen together, they weave a very dynamic dialogue and address issues of east and west." Tagore added that, "The works have powerful aesthetics but most importantly all the artists have roots deep in eastern culture. The works are compelling because Asia's culture is enormously diverse and influential, particularly at this time in history."

Korean painter Hosook Kang uses dense images of flying cranes, referencing redemption—a significant theme that runs through Korean and Japanese symbology. Internationally renowned Indian photographer Subhankar Banerjee is known for beautiful works akin to the tradition of Ansel Adams. Banerjee focuses on indigenous cultures that are disappearing and the effects of global climate change. Hiroshi Senju's references to water are powerful and evocative. Nathan Slate Joseph's work on galvanized steel relates to materials found in urban centers in Asia.

"One does not merely look at a Bhavsar work, one is transported by it. It is as if the artist has bottled up the night sky, dusted it in poweder pigment and cast it out in great dreamlike bursts. The result is a textured canvas that pulses with dimension; grainy up close, smooth and wispy from afar."

Lyrical abstractions hold court at the Zimmerli April 16, 2007

"Bhavsar's imagery conjures cosmic impressions, like nebulae expanding in a brilliant dance of colored light or stars mingling in a gravitational waltz through space."

Layers of Brilliance April 13, 2007

"The artist gets a remarkable range out of the method, producing big, star-studded Milky Ways on indigo backgrounds, swirling smile storms, pimply white surfaces that look like clotted cream, and floating lozenges of color, usually a square centered on a contrasting color, that remind you of Mark Rothko."

A selective overview of 4 decades of Bhavsar's art opens at Rutgers March 16, 2007

"...It is not that there are just layers and layers of pigments, some dispersed by the flow of air in Bhavsar's Greene Street loft studio - not just 80 layers as Kwint said, but as many as 200 - but there are meanings too deep for ordinary cognition, meanings too ancient and new, bizarre and supremely rational, for us even to try and put into words..."
