Catalog Note:
Known for experimental, abstract works, Bose Krishnamachari has lately turned toward more conceptual ways of expressing himself, including incorporating second-hand books and figures seen through saturated lenses. His photography and multi-media installations also use color as a dominant force. Krishnamachari has stated: "I refine my color to brightness. I have learnt this usage from the alternately subdued and lavish color codes of Indian ceremonies and ritual performances; the costumes, the gestures of enactment."
