Oil Painting - Abstract


When it is a painting by P. Gnana, the emotion arrests your heart before the concept reaches your mind. It is significant to note that a painting from his current and celebrated Eternal Companion series was acquired by the President of the Republic of Singapore (Hon. President Mr S. R. Nathan). Another painting by this eminent artist, from the same series, has been acquired by the Singapore Art Museum (National Heritage Board).

The cow has always been one of Gnana’s favourite animals. When Gnana was a little boy, his parents used to own and breed cows in their home in Neyveli. This childhood affiliation towards the cow is being beautifully rekindled through his much-appreciated current body of artworks: the heart-wrenching Eternal Companion series of paintings (oil on canvas).

Having been a professionally-trained mechanical engineer before receiving his formal training in painting, an enormous sense of perseverance and an undaunted desire to ‘search’ via art, are what truly made P. Gnana the significant creator he is today. In the early days of his career as an artist (about thirteen years ago), Gnana was almost entirely drawn towards figurative rendition that was enhanced by his undeniable strength in creating colours that were appetising to the art-hungry. Then, there came a phase whereby he decided to discard figurative expression as he realised a spiritual challenge in pursuing abstraction in his artworks. “Can I express what I want to, without figures?” was the question that lured him to the unfathomable world of abstract expressionism. This was a monumental phase that fetched Gnana an absolute sense of freedom as an artist - art for the artist’s sake.
