Puneet Kaushik is a perceptive artist who through his work tries to probe the very essence of being. His work is intensely personal, defining abstract expression in his emotional, mental and social space. His work often exhibit a fascination with the human body in all its visceral detail, including an abundant use of the colour red. The impact and scale of his sculptural work is enunciated by the delicate use of wire-mesh along with traditional textiles and materials. He attempts a manifestation of duality, a fine balance of light and shadow, gravity and lightness, silence and speech, and most importantly, of the inner and outer self. He is scratching the surface to expose the core in order to connect with the subtle self.
Puneet Kaushik’s works have been exhibited at Gallery Espace; Alliance Francaise de Delhi; Takashimaya, Tokyo, Japan; Kala Art Gallery, San Francisco; Modern Primitive Gallery, Atlanta and many others.
He has participated in several art workshops and camps and is the recipient of the Junior Research Fellowship, Department of Culture, Government of India (2000-2002) and was Nehru Research Associate, Jawaharlal Nehru Trust (1998-2000).
The artist lives and works in New Delhi.
