About Bose Krishnamachari

Stretched Bodies, canvas series by Bose Krishnamachari presents the viewer with a trigger point of images/icons that can function as symbolic devices with which to speak of an entire culture, its shifting mindsets and, its eclectic borrowings. Startling planes of flat color juxtaposed against skilful, almost photographic, representations of identifiable persona, imbue the work with an `international` sensibility. Bose admits to combining western image-making techniques with the vernacular, in a bid to arrive at an idiom that is entirely contemporary and brisk.
