P Srinivas Chary, a self taught artist from Siddipet, working since almost 20 years, is very passionate about his work. His exhibition at ICONART gallery features his latest works, ‘Telangana Re Posed’. He says, “I captured the essence of Telangana without the aid of circum-spatial props; I want to evoke it through people alone, through their postures and attires.” He finds immense scope for beauty in their mere presence.

His great grandfathers worked as sculptors. Though his father had deviated from that line of work to become a teacher, the muse of creation began to haunt Chary and before long this unconscious gravitation pulled him towards painting. “Earlier I used to work as an illustration artist with different Telugu newspapers, but this is my passion and now I am a full-time artist,” shares Chary.

One can see that the Telangana rural people in his paintings are either working or waiting. They are engrossed in their earthy struggles. But within the boundaries of the canvas Chary imbues them with a sense of repose. “Their expressions and postures alone will not make a perfect painting, but one need an overall proportion in the form of the painting,” shared Chary who worked with acrylic on canvas.

Every painting gives some message, but Chary feels that it is not necessary to see a message in or through a painting. “One should look at the whole arrangement. Artist lines, if they are thick and angular, how I retain a fluid quality that welcomes the curves of human anatomy and the folds in their dresses.

The craftsman in me takes delight in rendering the dresses and jewellery of these figures with native authenticity,” says Chary.“I feel that thick lines and raw colours and the texture are important in painting, I tried to present a realistic life with my stylish touch,”
All his life Chary lived among these people.

Their faces, gestures and attires have deeply imprinted themselves upon him. Using these external qualities as portals, he tried to gather the unique essence of their existence with his brush.
