Beginning from the shows since 1970, Ramesh Rao’s works are a revelation of those images in the mind which yield to the materials in the hand whether abstract or figurative. From the so called realistic to abstract his works are varied and at times complex that is impossible to do justice while making an analytical presentation of it. Although, Rao does not believe in concept of sheer realism in art, he has evolved his own individualistic style in his works where real life motifs are the main source of inspiration. Most of his earlier works are based on real life events. His rural and rustic village representations capture sublime beauty in the simplest form, making people take time out to experience, be it “Tangewallah” or “Roadside Vendors”.
Rao’s abstract works can be measured only by those who understand and respond to the language of colours and lines. And a study of choice of colours in his abstract works reveal the importance of his delineation of forms. Colours here does not mean range but depth and intensity. As an abstractionist his works derive significance from their tonal subtleties, the tension they create in passing from one tone to another. And they emit a silent music which engulfs the viewer and brings peace to searching soul.
Born in Udupi and among the family of artists, Rao is entirely a self-taught painter. A recipient of many awards including Karnataka Rajyotsav Award in 2019, Rao has been instrumental in founding among other groups, the Artists’ Forum-Udupi, a group of artists and art professionals in Karnataka and also Drishya School of Arts in Udupi. He is also running a full pledged public air conditioned gallery viz ‘Gallery Dristi’ in Udupi to cater the needs of many young artists. His works have been auctioned by prestigious houses like Southeby’s and many of his works are found in several public corporate offices and in private collections in India and abroad.
