Vineet Kacker

New Delhi-based sculptor featured in our current mix group exhibition for his contemporary Himalayan ceramic collection. vineet_painting“Most of my work draws from a spiritual search,” says the 50-year-old artist. “I like my work to walk a path between the meditative and the playful, responding both to the sacred and the profane, and exploring their inter-changeability. While outwardly the work may refer to the spiritual, the material is approached with a contemporary city-based sensibility, re-contextualising and re-mixing ancient icons and symbols with urban street kitsch. I also look at techniques used in contemporary music… I see myself sampling old texts, icons and imagery into new visual works that are accessible without being populist, and symbolic without being derivative,” says Kacker. Prices start at £430 onwards.

Vineet Kacker received a Bachelor of Architecture from the School of Planning and Architecture in New Delhi in 1988; trained in ceramics with Mansimran Singh in Andretta, Himachal Pradesh in 1989; studied under Ray Meeker and Deborah Smith at Golden Bridge Pottery in Pondicherry from 1990 to 1993; and apprenticed with Alan Caiger-Smith in Aldermaston, UK, and Sandy Brown in Bideford, UK,

In 1998. Selected solo/duo exhibitions include Vineet Kacker/Yushi Ito at Anant Art Gallery in New Delhi (2006); Spirit/Space at Artists' Centre in Mumbai (2005); Speaking in Sutras at Nature Morte in New Delhi (2004); and Vineet Kacker/Shanti Swaroopini Roy at Queens Gallery, British High Commission in New Delhi (1999). Selected group exhibitions include Skin of Asias, curated for the International Ceramic Biennale in South Korea (2007); Elements at the India Habitat Centre in New Delhi (2006); Indo-Swedish Art Glass Sambandh at the Indian Habitat Centre in New Delhi and Ostergotlands Lansmuseum in Linkopin, Sweden (2006); and Terra Natura at Gallerie Nvya in New Delhi (2005). Vineet Kacker lives and works in New Delhi.

While Vineet's creations are defined in sutra stones, cosmic dishes, Bodhisatva totems, travel tableaux and spirit markers. His sutra stones are as much meditation seats as they are elements of decoration. He transforms the rock and rugged stones from the Himalayas into sutra stones by giving them various shapes and colouring them with saffron, green, beige and white.

A few lines from scriptures are carved to give a spiritual look. Similar are his arrow-shaped spirit markers in which the images of Buddha and various religious symbols in porcelain are either engraved or pasted. His cosmic dishes are rounded rugged plates turned upside with Brahman, Vishnu, Mahesh and Buddha pasted on it. Travel tableaux are an interesting and innovative blend of ceramic.
