Continuing with my Concrete Art Series on beer coasters (Ink on paper 9.5 x 9.5 cm): This work is devoid of any colour and thrives on black and white contrasts, variation in lines and the juxtaposition of geometric shapes...
This week (beginning with the 15th of January) many of my Tamil friends and I will commemorate the begin of the Sun's northern bound journey: Pongal is celebrated to acknowledge and to be grateful for the abundance and growth that one has experienced; the sun is worshipped for the energy that all life forms derive from it.
Today I present to you another small work on paper (Ink and colour pencil on paper 9.5 x 9.5 cm) with a prayer for growth and abundance for all.
Happy New Year 2019!
May it be a pleasing one, with strokes of clarity, interesting and a centred one: Centred in good health, abundance, happiness and joy.
As I write this post (on my father's birthday) I think of our elders, loved ones and friends who have passed on; I think of their love and the joy they gave us. Encompassed in this warm feeling, I wish each one of you much happiness and success.
In my sign off post for this year, I present to you a pencil sketch done on a beer coaster (9.5 x 9.5 cm). This is again a part of a series and I am experimenting with simple geometric forms. I like to think I am establishing myself as an artist in the area of concrete art.
For this series, I decided to start of with the circle, which is symbolic for wholeness, perfection and timelessness.
As this year draws to a close, I wish each one of you and myself that time and space to be in the present and to be grateful for all that we have in that time and space.
Much light, looking forward to 2019!
From different worlds and yet so alike!
While researching and searching for material for a presentation on my works, I came across an artist from India, Nasreen Mohamedi, whose line drawings are so out of this world, subtle and have an ethereal quality that I have only seen in the works of Agnes Martin and Josef Albers.
In contrast, my own drawings are down to earth. But as they say: practice makes perfect and I have a long way to go.
I am an abstract artist living and working in Berlin.
