Pseudorealist Art is a new style of Art that tries to use the essential
elements of pseudorealism as is prevalent in the
films and other forms
of visual imagery of the 21st century.
Mathematics a pseudoreal
representation is a group representation that is equivalent to its
complex conjugates but is yet not a real representation.
In terms of Art, if a group of abstract elements creates
an image that is unreal and yet renders a believability that is normally
associated with realism then we can call it pseudorealist.
Pseudorealist art or pseudoreal art
essentially involves the use of abstract surrealshapes,
geometric symbols, which do not have any specific meanings but which
become meaningful in the context of the whole work of art. Another
essential element of pseudoreal art is the use of offbeat
may not be appropriate for a realsitic portrayal of the subject matter
or may even be inappropriate for the mood of the painting. Yet such
offbeat colours are used in pseudoreal works in such a way that they
render both believability and the requisite mood.
Devajyoti Rayís works
often show offbeat use of colors. In this work, he has used blue color
for the face of the man, while his body is in pink and moss-green. Such offbeat colors however
do not lead to any loss of balance.
