Imagination of permanent curiosity
Sen’s paintings are abstract with hidden figuratives, you don’t just see them, you experience the narrative inside them. They evoke a brain-spin that is so desirable, it makes you want to stand in front of his every painting because your mind begins to play.
The colours of the universe, that’s what his paintings capture, the colours that all of us creatures feel, whether we are socialized or roaming in wild abandon in nature. From the time we are born till we leave this earth, in every stage of our lives, all living beings engage in nothing but gestures, gestures of the body and the mind. “My Gesturism Art celebrates these gestural movements of being alive,” Sen tells me.
The predominance of women and different creatures in Sen’s art displays his total devotion to, and recognition of, women’s strength of emotion. He believes that women are the real receptacles of human society’s deeper subconscious allegory; that men have, for centuries, highly undervalued this positive superior quality that women are naturally endowed with. He says women instinctively appreciate and feel a tender emotional connect with all creatures of our eco-system. In his observation, women in fact harbour a virtual, platonic romantic liaison with animals that is totally secretive and innate.
As an art connoisseur and artist myself, I resonate with Sen’s imagination of permanent curiosity that spills into his art. He corroborates my perspective of always seeking new experiences, new challenges with uncompromising intellect. As a gallerist and curator, I am happy to find his creative power expressed with stunning vivacity and colour for viewers and art lovers to enjoy.
