JYOTIBA PATIL: Graduated from School of Visual Arts with a Bachelors of Fine Arts.
The inspiration for what I seek to create often stems from my interests in philosophy, science, culture and religion. it is also a culmination of the books or an idea I might be obsessed with at the time.
The materials and techniques adopted are supplementary, and deliberately sought out. The choice of these materials depends on how they might accentuate and co-exist with the concepts that I wish to impress upon. My art is not bound to any one media it spans from work in sculpture, photography, silkscreen, and 3d printing.
Art has a more emotional approach to the world and science, a more rational approach. But like science, art is a means of investigation. Both involve ideas, theories, and hypotheses. Artists, like scientists, study materials, people, culture, history, religion, mythology— and learn to transform information into something else.
One of my driving passions is this idea of exploring nature, and trying to find hidden data within nature. It seems to me that there is this latent potential everywhere, all around us. Despite the illusion of turbulence, there is order to the form and behaviour commanding the chaotic impermanence inherent in all matter.
This I chose to exemplify through my work. By inviting the viewers to stop for a moment and observe the beauty that constantly surrounds us. To accept that art and science do not exist on opposite ends of the academic spectrum but rather inform each other in tangible ways, while provoking us to wonder about the magical moments we do not see.
