Painting - Acrylic On Canvas
Circle is an old symbol. The earliest humans looked up the sky and found the orb of fire
giving them light and warmth. Sun for them was a mystical power, a god. They saw
its movement from morning in the east and to the west in the evening. Next day again
it came up in the sky. They regarded it as an omnipresent power that repeated its
emergence with cyclical regularity. There was no beginning or end to the sun for
them. It was the sun that allowed their imagination to look in the circular form
endlessness, infinity. Thus quite early circle became a symbol of completeness,
eternity and also rejuvenation.
Circle also denoted the Nature. They found seasons changing and then again reemerging
with regularity. The seasons became the circle of Nature. In winter all
greenery vanished and then when Spring came life stated flourishing once again.
The great Mohenjo daro-Harrappan civilization had a script as yet un-deciphered. They
often had a symbol of a circle with six spokes inset. What it represented is not known.
From prehistory to history circle gained greater importance and came to symbolise the
cycle of birth and death and also the soul’s eternity. In the rainbow spectrum of Indian
philosophy, religion and culture, circle has been used as a varied symbol. The cycle
of birth and rebirth is broken only through moksha. King Ashok propagated Buddha’s
path to enlightenment through Dharm Chakra—a wheel with eight spokes of a
chariot. I feel the wheel was invented with inspiration from sun or moon. Hindu
philosophy talks about chakras. It is believed that there are seven chakras or source
of light located within the subtle body. The Tantra cult uses the concept of chakras for
awakening kundalini. The chakras were illustrated with images and this lead to the
development of tantric art. Ajit Mukherjee in his seminal book The Art of Tantra
helped to create in early sixties a movement of tantric art in India. But it did not last
very long being bound by a strict and regulated expression as per dictates of Tantra
iconography. IT IS ALWAYS BELIEVED THAT AN ART IS ONLY DONE BY AN ESTABLISHED ARTIST, BUT WHEN I GOT RECOGNITION FROM WORLD RECORD ASSOCIATION FOR MY EFFORTS;-
The exhibition with the most paintings of flowers in the world
My perception of an art is changed.
ART IS IMAGINATION
ART IS DREAMING
ART IS INOVATION
ART IS THINKING
ART IS CRAETIVITY
ART IS EMOTIONS
ART IS SUPPORT
ART IS COMBINATION OF MATERIALS
ART IS CONCEPT
ART IS TO DO SOME THING DIFFERENT
ART IS FOR EVERYONE TO DO AND ENJOY.
