Chippa Sudhakar’s personalised visual language is an insightful engagement with different media and techniques. Working with acrylic and etching, wood and glass resin, carved relief and colour washes, he manages to express his concerns about his surroundings rather sensitively. Chippa’s narratives on contemporary reality are through metaphors and symbols. You can almost always spot a shaven head, lotus, creepers, triangles, squares, houses, trees, boats, pot, and lamps.
Relationships are an integral part of Chippa’s works. The process of exploring and experiencing different media is akin to knowing and understanding people around him. There is an intimacy and at the same time, a universality in his works. A childhood spent in rural areas, and living in his farmhouse studio in Hyderabad has also resulted in a distinct folk art touch to his works.
The contemporary reality today, offers many challenges for a visual artist in its representation. The bombardment of his sensibility from varied sources as digital art, the interactive internet and virtual reality, the electronic and print media, advertising, hoardings, films, etc., offer images that can be readily appropriated for various end use by the artist. Within such a context, mandating that the artist arbitrate with his evolved personalized style and express concerns about his techno-socio-cultural-ecological-environmental realm; it can pose a challenge. But every artist desires to establish a posture of difference, to ascertain his personalized visual language. An artist of such a stature, who has developed his personalized iconography from the archives of his experiences and exposure to the visual pictorial Indian tradition, is the Hyderabad based Chippa Sudhakar, whose versatility and creative inventiveness lies in engaging with different medium to sublimate his narrative via metaphors and symbols to give voice to his concerns about the contemporary reality. With material as wood and glass resin, media as acrylic and etching, techniques as carved relief and colour washes; he has assiduously and sensitively worked with it to communicate his concepts, which in their correspondence is aligned appropriately with his visual language. Wood as an organic medium is subject to decay, employing it to allegorize the mortality/temporality of existence and its fragility in a world dictated and dominated by diverse technologies with man exploiting nature perilously to near destruction. While his glass resin sculptures reflect and contemplate upon life that has assumed the humdrum of mechanical subsistence.
As a creative individual, Chippa has engaged productively with his excellence obtained in technique and skills to develop a visual language, which is dominantly figurative. His success in this direction is equally mandated and matched by his creative inventiveness, which involves psychological, intellectual, technical; as well as responses and interpretation to his environment. The process of creating art nevertheless is inherently complex, conditioned by the contingencies of moments in the experiences of the artist’s life. As a sensitive artist, Chippa has perceptively observed certain realities of life, which he has extended to communicate visually through an artistic vocabulary and formal elements.
