'You don't see things as they are. You see things as you are,' says the Talmud and this could, perhaps, describe Natvar Bhavsar's paintings.
This one thing, 'color' has myriad, noetic images in Bhavsar's work. His imposing work is like entering grand cathedrals, hue saturated monuments. This art is not a doorway to something, it is complete in itself. There are no direct religious overtones and it is essential to see, to actually view, his work. Copies and photographs do not convey his overwhelming experiments and great perception of color. No dilettante-like talk of tints, textures and wavelengths of light can show this skilled baring of energy and monumental, weighty creativity. Like Pollock, his paintings are impossible to copy and prints do not transmit their raw majesty.
