  • Artist’s Statement

    My research for my new ongoing works revolves around geometry, mathematical symbols, lines, shapes. Geometric Shapes can be defined as figures or areas closed by a boundary that is created by combining the specific amount of curves, points, and lines. Different geometric shapes are Triangle, Circle, Square, etc.
    An image could be the projection of infinitely many 3D structures. Our visual experiences solely comprise 2D projections of the 3D world. Those objects can be seen in our surroundings. The shape of surrounding objects can be seen in my recent paintings For example I take shape of a pond as a rectangle, which can be used as land, like a wall. It depends as per the concept and visual, suppose a circle can be seen as a pond, it also justifies the time and speed.
    I use this confluence of geometrical shapes as a subject for my recent painting, Where I use them to depict the things from surrounding as symbols, forms, lines.

    Mix media has always been my priority over other media because there's no boundary of colours, technique, or rules. I mostly use earthly tones of colours to connect to the land, structures, shapes around me.

  • Biography

    Sunil Yadav completed a BFA in Painting from Allahabad University, to then pursue a MFA in Painting from Khairagarh University. He has showcased his works in numerous group shows and has been awarded a number of grants by private and government institutions, with his most recent being the Junior Fellowship awarded by the Government of India.
    Sunil Yadav observes how traditional objects, ideas, languages and even daily associations are being superseded by advancements in technology. Having spent most of his time in the village, the shift to the heavily transforming facets of the city has found in Yadav a need to articulate through his works, the contradictions that affect his notions and beliefs. Reflecting on the stories from his village in parallel to those from the city, he distinctly marks the dual aspects of the two worlds, forming a narrative base to his works.
    The use of lines are greatly influenced by his study of textiles in his last year of his Bachelor degree. The artist currently works in the National Capital Region.
