Buddha’s is not just Buddha, a name or a cult. Buddha is nature, it is a philosophy, meditation, energetic micro particles in our environment and most importantly, Buddha is seeking your inner self, says the Marathi Sculpture artist Satish Gharage, who hails from Kolhapur in Maharashtra about his latest collection of Buddha sculptures, currently on display at the Artist Gallery in Triveni Kala Sangam, New Delhi.

Buddha the way you have never seen before

You will be surprised by his rendition of Buddha, a thought-form unlike others we see every day when it comes to a Buddha sculpture. The artistic touch in sculptures is outright prominent with the serene expression warping with curvaceous creepers, birds, petals and leaves entwined together in Bronze.

41 year old Satish has been practising the art of sculptures for last 19 years now and his forte lies in the fact that he casts his own sculptures rather than depending on casters. Having studied art at the Kalamandir Mahavidyalaya in Kolhapur, Gharage, knew right from the beginning that making sculpture was his true calling.

“My childhood was spent in village Majale Dist. in Kolhapur, a place rich in traditions and culture and thus my exposure to various art forms that inspired me from the very beginning. I used to wonder as a child how sculptures were made and my interest just kept growing,” remarks Gharage.

Recipient of one National award and three state level awards apart from having his entire collection displayed at the International Nicolas Roerich museum, Moscow (Russia), Gharage is extremely modest. Ask him something about art and he is ready to roll.

“The most challenging part for this collection was casting. I started the basic form in clay to attain the expression of peace and truth on every Buddha face and then worked out in phases including wax and welding to complete the final look that includes the curvaceous vines with flowers etc around it ,” admits Gharage

“I like modern art with a touch of traditional concept. And I plan to make bigger sculptures, push my boundaries technically and try my hands at newer experiments in my field,” says an exuberant Gharage, whom you can catch at Triveni Kala sangam till 23rd of this month.
