Autumn, Yorkshire Autumn, Yorkshire

This painting of Autumn was done by Vandana and is a memory of her visiting me in 2009. I was living at this house in North Yorkshire. The painting is dear to me. It is a painting of our home and she is looking at it from the fields around on an autumn evening. It captures the wide expansive farms, the green towering Howardian hills of Yorkshire in the background, the pretty farmhouse including the little shed on the side far away and most of all how it all looks like in depth of Autumn.

Life sprang out of nothing – the dark empty space – and that life seems to be stretching into eternity in every direction.

Tiny elements started carving the empty space into recognisable geometrical forms but in a very intricate and in not too obvious manner.

Art at its heart wants to reflect life which is nothing but an endless continuum of movement………

A journey of journeys is VIVA art, picking up memories enroute , touching the soul at its roots and then Implanting on to a blank canvas….In abstraction life’s intricacies….

Mahadeva temple Tambisurla
12th century Mahadeva temple Tambisurla

 

What do I see in a painting? Frankly speaking I have no readymade answer to that question. But I will try to answer that question with the hope that I can find answers to the other questions that keep bothering me.
Why do I want to paint?
What do I want to paint?
As I observe the painting of the temple at Goa I can feel the stillness of the time and space that surrounded the temple at that moment when rain stopped after having drenched the earth with vigour for quite a while. I can see that in the reflections of the temple and its earthly hues in the puddles of water that held to the earth. I can see the reflections in the moist air that pervaded the space at that moment. I can very well feel and perceive the sounds of the water droplets as they drip from the branches into the puddles below. I can also see the marks left by the chiseling of the painter in the brush strokes that lead the eyes to the depths that the painter has created in that flat surfaced canvas.

Konaseema Paddy Fields, Acrylic on canvas, Vishnu Vandana
Konaseema Paddy Fields, Acrylic on canvas, Vishnu Vandana

This painting speaks to me so much. The paddy fields of Konaseema are where we come from – where our roots are. Both of us, brother and sister, are the produce of these fields. Our grandparents lived in a small village called Mori, many of our cousins still do. It lies near the eastern coast of India very close to the Bay of Bengal. The Godavari river is quite close to it as it meanders its way to the sea. Mori is a picturesque village where, every year, my dad would take us form Durgapur in North India to Mori in Razole taluka, East Godavari district. I remember the journeys well – starting from the doors of 22/7 Newton Avenue in Durgapur to the Railway station in Calcutta overlooking the overpowering Howrah bridge over the Hoogly river and then the two nights on the train.
