On the computer, Aditya Pande weaves a tangled web of synthetic line work, looping through grand arabesques and squiggling together skeins to form animals and people. These forms are anchored by bold blocks of skewed colours, usually applied with glossy enamel paints that contrast against the more powdery finish of the ink-jet print, sometimes further articulated by the appearance of an unblinking eyeball or a shiny nose. On occasion collage elements are mixed in, for a pleasingly demented farce that is the collusion of painting, print-making, graphic design and draftsmanship.
