ABOUT THE WORK
"Telling stories of day to day life through rudimentary India folk art- Warli"
"Aurora" is a painting of joy and happiness. Inspired by my morning strolls in the woods near my house, the painting is a reminder of new beginning, crisp fresh air, sunshine, the sound of life, colors, rain and rainbows. 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 10" x 10" heavily textured hardboard and characters are painted with Acrylics. The fine details are achieved with 000 brush.
