Exhibition of new paintings by Pradeep Puthoor on view at Nature Morte in New Delhi
In fabulous, mural-size paintings, Pradeep Puthoor seems to suggest a meeting of art, computer science, and biological engineering.
NEW DELHI.- Nature Morte is presenting a solo show of new paintings by Pradeep Puthoor.

In fabulous, mural-size paintings, Pradeep Puthoor seems to suggest a meeting of art, computer science, and biological engineering. Sumptuous colors come together into evocative forms that hover between anatomical elaborations and botanical follies. Iridescent vessels contain a myriad of pulsating, vibrating creatures: hothouse flowers, internal organs, robotic insects, nuclear paramecium, alien genitalia. The artificial illumination within these paintings can be a day-glow moonlight or the electrified, blinking neon of the Las Vegasstrip. With over-arching structures and containers of organic grids, the works also feel like urban mega-structures, orbiting space colonies, and hypothesized internet communities. Puthoor’s works are paintings to swim in and get lost, to drown in their luscious complexities.

Peter Nagy ,the curator of the show, said: "In fabulous, mural-size paintings, Pradeep Puthoor seems to suggest a meeting of art, computer science, and biological engineering.
