Biography from Chroma Gallery:
Siddharth refers to his paintings as ‘architectural abstractions.’  He finds inspiration in the quirky harmony of a building’s structure, celebrating the rhythm of windows on a façade or the juxtaposition of a stairway to the wall it ascends.  In order to reveal the beauty of these mundane, often overlooked spaces, Siddharth sketches and photographs buildings that catch his eye on his travels. Back in the studio, he translates these images onto the canvas, abstracting forms so that shape and color take over, making us look afresh at things we thought we knew.

The surfaces of his paintings are very important to Siddharth.  He uses vibrant glazes of color carefully layered onto the panel, playing with gloss and matte finishes to bring certain elements of his compositions forward and cause others to recede. His goal is to strike a balance between likeness and abstraction.  Sometimes the balance is tipped, and lush color obscures recognizable forms altogether.

Born in Kolhaphur, India, Siddharth has exhibited in numerous solo and group shows around the world.   He has won awards for his paintings in the United States and India, including selection for juried expositions at EXPO XXIV in Huntington, NY, the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento, and the Soho-Chelsea International Art competition in New York.
