"Telling stories of day to day life through rudimentary India folk art- Warli"
"Tree By The Creek" is inspired by our walk through the Ridley Creek. Warli is a rudimentary painting style that uses a very basic graphic vocabulary: a circle, a triangle, and a square. The circle and triangle come from observation of nature; the circle representing sun and moon, the triangle derived from mountains and pointed trees. Only the square seems to obey a different logic and appears to be a human invention, indicating sacred enclosures or a piece of land. So the central motive in each ritual painting is the square.
Painting is done on 8" x 8" heavily textured hard board and characters are painted with Acrylics. The fine details are achieved with 000 brush.
