About A Brush of Life

This body of works is inspired by his own recovery from a stroke that left him crippled 11 years ago, the gradual re-picking up of the brush one hand at a time. These paintings cover diverse subjects ranging from philosophy, explorations of the human mind and resurgence from pain. What binds them together is the presence of emotions; whether it be the musician singing a soulful song or a human head - each conveys passion. The choice of colours is bold and the strokes strong and unwavering. Together they create paintings that not only move the viewer but stun with their intensity.

Godbole’s technique is expressive but his subjects introspective, as he deals with deep existentialist questions. The subjects are pared down to the very core = what does it all mean? How does one tackle the flesh? The desires, the unsaid wishes.They are of diverse subjects but what binds them together is the presence of emotions; be it the musician singing a soulful song or a head, each convey a passion.
