The work of Gopal Pardeshi has always been about opening doors to intriguing images, nostalgia, and lifestyles. Simple, yet powerful, paintings has helped him gain critical acclaim and success. Through the use of lighting effects and shadows, he transforms everyday objects into beautiful work of art.
His keen sense of observation makes him an attentive observer. The artist's intricate and vibrant artwork captures nuances of India's rural life, culture and sensibility. Each work, a small vignette reflecting a detailed portrayal of the exterior of the door, some left half open to allow the viewer to peep inside the inhabitants, and props that include the cow, oil lamp (kandeel), flour mill, sup (to clean the grains), door handles, etc. set against the backdrop of old Maharashtrian Wadas, is reminiscent of the quintessentially Marathi middle-class during the Peshwa era.
