Koushal balance his professional work as an art director and his artistic explorations with painting and sculpture, as well as mixed media and other explorations. The main theme of Koushal’s solo exhibition was about ‘Isha’, the mother of this Universe is his understanding with the power which runs the entire show in this planet and beyond.
In Koushal Choudhary’s paintings the effect of dynamic surfaces, with dissolving and emerging forms, rhythmic patterns, and textural explorations tinged with bursts of colour is a powerful experience. Koushal’s abstract style allows the viewer to experience the artwork through the color combinations, brush strokes, and other gestural techniques.
Through “Isha Connected” Koushal Choudhary was exhibiting 30 amazing artworks, created in past 12 months to show on 30th March on the auspicious date “Isha Farha Quraishy” was born!
The curator was able to take the visitors through an exhilarating exhibition. A walk through the collection starts to unravel the artist’s vision. Moving forward in the main exhibition area, all large-scale paintings emerged guiding the viewer to the main collections. The colours speak for themselves, functioning as a sensitive medium mirroring moods and emotions – Koushal Choudhary employs varied devices to manipulate paint on the surface establishing rigid boundaries, and other times leaving a free flow of pigments. Adding and subtracting to the surface is part of his process; the elements begin with deft drawn lines and result sometimes in impasto layers of ‘Connections’.
The intense colours and textures, linear constructions and spatial formations establish varied layers and dimensions in these portrait paintings, with the beautiful ISHA – Mrs. Universe Solidarity. Each work that is created with this act, is filled with a sense of pulsating life, and articulated sentiments that connects to Universe.
