Jeet Aulakh, Namo Yoga Yoge, 2009, oil on canvas, 122.0 cm x 91.0 cm
In Anahada Naada, Jeet Aulakh adapts the circle and the square — two recurring formal symbols spanning a variety of spiritual, religious and mythological systems — to embody and reflect three decades of personal spiritual experience. These works speak in much the same way as does a sunset, or a dew laden flower at sunrise; to the internal and on through to the infinite. Visually ripe with formalist appeal, the paintings in this exhibition transcend modernist dogma and instead speak to a realm more in tune with the spiritual and sublime.
