Touchably Untitled, 2007
acrylic and graphite on canvas

Catalog Note:
Based in Bhopal, India, Verma Akhilesh produces paintings that feel as if they are unfinished and yet they do not seem incomplete. It is impossible to look at Akhilish's work in terms of a beginning leading to an end. Despite pronounced linearity, Akhilish's compositions seem to melt into his canvasses. His paintings appear full of freshness and the colors resonate with emotion. Akhilish is skilled at translating familiar territory in an individualized way.
