Bose Krishnamachari

Bose Krishnamachari was born in Kerala and studied at Sir J.J. School of Art, Mumbai. Krishnamachari’s oeuvre includes a manipulation of photographic elements as well as vibrant, colorful abstract spaces.While his canvases operate on a formal capacity, with their spectacular combination of color, texture and contrasting designs, they also have a strong intellectual basis. Influenced by the conceptual slant of much modern British art, a result of his tenure at Goldsmith College, London, Krishnamachari makes us rethink the connection between signifier and signified.He questions the validity of the image as a purveyor of fixed meaning. His abstract patterns embody a shifting network of signs, mischievously evading definition and counteracting the assumption of a singular truth. Bose lives and works in Mumbai.
