  • Sohan Qadri  (+)

    Biography : Sohan Qadri was the first Indian artist to venture into the realm of abstraction composing paintings that emerged from deep states of meditation. A poet, painter and Tantric yogi, Qadri is deeply engaged with spirituality. Growing up in Punjab, Qadri received exposure to Sufism, Hinduism, and Sikhism early in life. He was initiated into yogic practice by the age of seven. As a teenager, he ran away to a Tibetan Buddhist monastery in search of higher truths. A fascination with Buddhist doctrines continues to influence Qadri’s life and work. Today he is widely recognized for his luminous dye-infused works on meticulously serrated and punctured paper. He begins his process by bathing paper in acid-free water and once it is swollen with liquid, he rhythmically scores the surface and applies inks and dyes. The repetition of these careful incisions is an integral part of his meditation. Relying on a language of orifices and elongated paths or lines, Qadri abandons representation in search for transcendence. Imbued with vibrant hues, the rippled surfaces possess a strong sense of energy and rhythm. These are works that arrest our thoughts and invite us to experience the metaphysical. Over his long career, Qadri has interacted with notable cultural figures, including the Surrealist painter René Magritte, architect Le Corbusier, and Indian author Mulk Raj Anand. He has had more than 80 one-man exhibitions in the United States, Europe, Asia and Africa. His works are held in such collections as the Peabody Essex Museum, Massachusetts; the Rubin Museum of Art, New York; and the National Gallery of Modern Art, New Delhi. His paintings are also in notable private collections, including those of Cirque du Soleil, Heinrich Böll, and Dr. Robert Thurman. Qadri lives and works in Copenhagen.

  • Hiroshi Senju  (+)

    Biography : Hiroshi Senju is a painter who expresses contemporary modernity through ancient painting techniques that are unique to Japan. Hiroshi Senju’s art can be understood in its simple immediacy- bold, glowing lines flow down against a deep blue-black expanse in his Waterfall series. A sense of powerful, timeless calm, the monumental force and presence of nature, is perceived. He combines finely ground pigments derived from natural materials in a medium of animal-hide glue, and then applies this “paint” to handmade rice paper mounted on board. This results in a matte surface that glows with the richness of the applied colors. Senju is the first Asian artist to receive an individual fine arts award at the Venice Biennale for his acclaimed Waterfall paintings in 1995. Museums that collect his work include the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, California; the University of California, Los Angeles, California; the Kushiro Art Museum, Hokkaido, Japan; and The Museum of Modern Art, Toyama, Japan.
