About House of Gods:

Do we have any meaningful control over our own lives or are we mere puppets dangling from the strings maneuvered by an ever-powerful entity? This is the proverbial and insistent question Deepak Mer has asked through his paintings – House of Gods.

Peer closely and you will discover a host of images hiding within/behind other images. It is a wonderful maze, a labyrinth of consciousness taking you to places the mind finds hard to fathom with its limited span of attention.  

Some paintings will reveal the Kundalini Shakti, some the Nag bandha, another will depict something as simple as a compass. However, simple or complex the painting seems to be, it will always lure you to gaze and will divulge you secrets that at first defy the eye.  

The main subjects are the figurines which are human bodies seemingly suspended in the air, using telling gestures, making you wonder whether they are asking the proverbial yet timeless question that man has still not been able to answer: “Does destiny exist? Is it all fated in the end? Or can we influence fate’s maneuvers? Should we live by our own rules or would romancing the Gods cut a better deal?” After all, the mystery of what we are meant to do here is yet to be deciphered.  

All works are an enthralling concoction of the artist’s keen attention to detail and reveal a curious mind, a vivid imagination and his trademark talent of treading the unbeaten path. The paintings are a proud display of skill with the entire range of media available in terms of shades and hues and are the epitome of the ‘multi-layered’ genre in painting, in the end, creating a beautiful spectrum of textures and surfaces. And, thereby, hangs a tale.  

This collection is Deepak’s most celebrated series and has enjoyed patronage over the years, so much so that some of these paintings are now adorning the walls in several countries other than India.
