Wonderment (ஆச்சர்யம்)

My formative years were spent in a small temple town on the foothills of western ghats. The sculptures in the famous Shiva temple belonging to late Pandya period are awe inspiring. These sculptures have left a great impression on me. 

“WONDERMENT” – Mixed media on paper – 14” X 17”
This painting is an adaptation of a temple sculpture - Indian ink on paper used in dry brush technique and the ornaments embossed with acrylic paint. Indian ink is one of my favorite medium as it helps create depth very easily. Even though, one is restricted to a monochrome palate, I find working with Indian ink quite liberating. 'Wonderment' was sold by Victoria technical Institute, Chennai in 2006.
