Sachin has an educational foundation typical to the conservative J J School circle. The older strand of academic realism is married there to the Abstract Expressionist lineage. As a result, Jaltare’s oils on canvas have intimate portraits of beautiful, delicately sensuous girls rendered in a mixture of conventional, almost curriculum-resembling poses and a faint note of intimacy. Naturalness vies with artificially exaggerated dainty poses. The illustrative merges with the abstract which is expected to generate atmosphere. The end is professional but sentimental.

This artwork contain a female and a male form taking shape from the surrounding elemental abstraction.
This painting “Couple” is an outstanding work by artist Sachin Jaltare. His mixed media works explore the tango of form and formlessness, energy and desire, and the mortal and divine. This painting combines figurative and abstract elements fluidly to weave an engrossing narrative that is both authentically Indian and contemporary. Fragments and silhouettes of hauntingly beautiful men and women, representing Shiva and Parvati, are portrayed locked in a sensuous duet of lowered lids, trailing fingers and passionate half-embraces. The sylph-like women and the medieval knight-like men with blazing red tikkas on their foreheads are pictured against moody, nocturnal land- scapes in charcoal, grey, black, scarlet and blue. The expressionist, acrylic canvasses are further flecked with esoteric symbols drawn from the natural world and Hindu mythology.
