New York-based Natvar Bhavsar has earned renown for his colour-field paintings that are aligned to the American abstract expressionism that peaked in the 1960s—the decade when Bhavsar moved to the U.S. from Gujarat—as also to the rich colourscapes of the land of his birth. What lends this work a captivating urgency is its quiet, consuming energy. The silent picture plane of the work is in the process of being consumed by a riot of advancing colours, reminiscent of Holi—the festival of colours—captivating for its use of pure colours.
