All these paintings are very Indian in nature(no need to say that,right?) All are glass art. It is also a mixed media. 'Radha-Krishna' & 'Small Talk' took it's form in 2003 when I was in my family way:) They were done for my yet-to-be-born daughter hoping that she would imbibe it from my womb. My mom always encouraged me to do the best of things during that period('& always' as she says) citing stories from the purana...esp the case of Abhimanyu(which I think almost every Indian would be familiar with, if not...) who learnt the knowledge of entering the deadly & virtually impenetrable Chakravyuha from his father, Arjun, who talked about this to his wife, Subhadra, while she was carrying Abhimanyu in her womb. I was always fascinated with Indian mythology; mythology of any country for that matter.
'Small Talk' has the Rajastani flavor to it as is evident from the attire & the huge,broad,plain bangles made of bone(correct me if I am wrong);usually worn by certain tribes. The unmarried women wear them from their wrist to the elbow while the married wear them from elbow upwards till their underarm as well. Seems interesting:) By the way they are nomadic tribes.
'Devageetham' took it's form in 2007. I was always captivated by Meerabai's(mystical poetess & sage) stories;her love & devotion for Krishna. She's known for her soulful singing that is said to've mesmerized everyone during her time. This painting however is not typical Meera as we see in many picture of hers. She's usually attired in white, holding a tampuru(tanpura). I've tried to conceive her in colors. This image has been like 'something-I've seen-long ago-but-forgotten' kind.
Hope you all like it.
Have a Colorful Day:)
