Rajkumar Shinge

07.05.12 25.05.12

Rajkumar (Raj) Vasant Shinge was the first artist from India to be selected within the ´ace International Artistic Residency Program. He currently lives, teaches and works in Thane, Maharashtra Province. India.

Raj works with a wide variety of media – including painting, ceramics, and video installations – having exhibited numerous times in India and the United States, where he participated in the NYC Studios MCI Video Festival in New York.

During his residency in Buenos Aires, he continued with the work that he had already started in previous residences in Dubai and China (the latter working with terracotta). Shinge is a curious pigment explorer, and he has therefore brought many pigments in order to incorporate them into his work. He also added in experimentation pigments purchased in the city of Buenos Aires. He worked on immense handmade papers brought from Bombay.

On May 23rd, the Communications exhibition by the Indian artist Raj Shinge began. He worked with the fresco technique on artisan paper from his country as well as with earthy pigments brought from India.

Rajkumar displays in his work all the technical knowledge as well as an amazing synthesis of experiences and observations from his travels that he treasures in his memory. These works are exhibited as immense papyri, cave paintings, fragments of ancient lands manifest stories of the evolution of civilization. The materials that the artist used to carry out his work seem already loaded with knowledge and historicity, which Shinge knows how to use in order to construct his work. It contains multiple layers of sense and meaning.
