“I work like and actor: I remain the same actor, but perform and create situations within a different role”. says Manu Parekh. This sums us Manu Parekh’s attitude towards his work, and to a certain extent explains the variety of subjects, like the Benaras series and the still life objects that he depicts in his paintings. Polemics have always intrigued Manu Parekh – the energy of the organic form, and the inherent sexuality within the forms are intangible elements in his works. His paintings provoke viewers to take notice of the world around them through the emotion, pain and anguish expressed in the subjects of his paintings. His colors and forms exude a volatile energy that can barely be contained within the confines of his canvas, and become an extension of the artist’s personality.
