THOUGHTS ON PAINTING

Indian art comprises of a continuous flow starting from pre-historic times without a break – absorbing and adapting to changes in time. Spirituality has been the dominating factor and till the coming of Islam the influences were an admixture of various forms of Hinduism. Temples and statues made from stone and metal have survived the vagaries of the tropical climate; it was also possible because of the veneration with which the people looked upon these creations from the past till today. Devi is the Mother Goddess, or Durga. Here, the art is a projection of the mind – a spiritual mind. To the secular mind the images of Devi, or Durga, may seem as if it was through the body that the light of the supreme spirit flows – the inner Self. That is why the eyes are much larger in proportion.
