Threshold is hosting an open forum discussion on the relevance of Abstraction in a Post-Modern context, with leading artists, academics, theoreticians and collectors. The discussion will take off from the ongoing solo exhibition at the gallery titled Cosmic Balance, featuring Pandit Khairnar.

On the 10th of September '18, at Threshold Art Gallery, 4.30 pm onward.

Pandit Khairnar has always been interested in the aspect of ‘time, space and form’. Through deep contemplation of experiences, there comes a transformation of what is perceived, and these worldly experiences take a visual form. His work is often seen as abstract and nonrepresentational, but he strongly believes that if his work is to be categorized, it should be seen as representational of the infinite and the intangible. Pandit Khairnar attempts to capture the intangible and sift the infinite from the finite.
 
His paintings, existential in tone and content, are composed with the intention of communicating a sense of intangible ‘isness’.
 
Pandit Khairnar has had solo exhibitions at Volte Gallery, Mumbai in 2012; Jehangir art gallery, Mumbai in 2011; 'The Sheltering Sky' Gallery – 7, Mumbai in 2005; Jehangir art gallery, Mumbai organized by Bombay Art gallery in 2006 and 2001; Sans Tache Art Gallery, Mumbai in 1998; He had his ‘first Solo Show at Jehangir Art Gallery, Mumbai in 1996. This is his first solo exhibition in New Delhi. He was represented by Volte at India Art Fair 2016.

Pandit had a two person show with Rajendra Dhawan, at Gallery -7, Mumbai in 2002 and in 2008 'Reduced to Essentials-II', two person show with sculptor Madan Lal at Bombay Art Gallery, Mumbai. He has been awarded by the Bombay Art Society, Mumbai in 2004 and 1992; state of Maharashtra Merit Award and LS RAHEJA School of Art Award in 1992.
