Prakash Gadge says, “Right from the beginning ‘Seclusion’ has cast a spell over me. This allows me to strike a conversation with myself and nature. Being one with nature is something very crucial to my being. It reminds me of my existence in the universe and therefore my role, which tempts me to say something through my paintings. Here, I did not succumb to the temptation of rendering my thoughts in colour; for they can disguise the directness of my paintings. I guess black possesses a power with its innumerable grays to say it single handedly.”
