Contrary to western popular perception, the Kama Sutra is not exclusively a sex manual; it presents itself as a guide to a virtuous and gracious living that discusses the nature of love, family life and other aspects pertaining to pleasure oriented faculties of human life.Kama Sutra, in parts of the world, is presumed or depicted as a synonym for creative sexual positions; in reality, only 20% of Kama Sutra is about sexual positions. The majority of the book, notes Jacob Levy, is about the philosophy and theory of love, what triggers desire, what sustains it, how and when it is good or bad.
I think abstract art should be a very personal experience. Whatever you see is what you are supposed to see. If it draws you in - takes you somewhere you remember - ignites your imagination and draws you into contemplation - you are successful as the artist of that work. If you name that piece, you are imposing an interpretation on whoever is looking.
I have done this painting in watercolours on Strathmore, acid-proof professional grade paper 300gsm thick and of size 18"x24".
I am an engineer by profession. I hold a degree in electrical engineering and am also a Fellow of the Institution of Engineers in India. After my graduation I joined the steel industry and worked in senior capacities in major steel plants in India and abroad for over 30 years. I live in Bombay and am an independent consultant in the marketing of industrial products.
This background might seem entirely unconnected with the world of art, but for decades I have been wielding the brushes as a hobby. Although I am a entirely self-taught artist I have had a few one-man shows to my credit and been part of regional group exhibitions in Bombay, Bangalore, Delhi in the 70's and 80's.
Caught up in the rat race, however, I had little time to devote to my canvasses and virtually gave up painting. But the new millennium brought with it a new phase of creativity, and I am again finding myself painting and capturing the evanescent moments of nature.
