The coastal scenes in South India (Kerala) during the summer season are painted with the coconut palms bordering the lakes in confluence with the Arabian Sea;the evening lights make blushes on the frills of palm-leaves and the plants laid out wild in the untouchable corners of the shore,away from the catch of human beings. The sky which is about to fade by the setting sun was to welcome the new moon as the sign of the night and there was a colorful kite flying in the sky as if to kiss the moon reminding a summer night’s dream…!
The stream that flows amidst the Forest lands of La Digue is tranquil and silent, reflecting the nature against in stillness..! It is beautiful especially of the rocks surrounding and due to the upkeep of the area by the village.
In the noon the lake found calm in the gentle air that blew out of the leaves in a peaceful pace and the surface of water remained pleasing to the reflections from the banks…! A leisure boat was at rest near the tree that kept itself blissful in the pleasing wind under the sunshine of the noontime….!The banks awaited the visitors with colorful vessels to move around…!
The yellows denote a color of bloom generally that catches up with light,heat and fragrance to the heart of viewers. It is thought more or less as the color of blossoms that sprang up in the early midsummer so as to have a healing touch to the eyes against the hottest sun with a proclamation that the fertility of the earth is quite surviving all the challenges of the seasons!
In the spring season festivities celebrated in Kerala,the southern part of India, flower spread outs laid out in circular forms pose a symbolic representation of the seasons that occur profoundly in nature wherein each and every season is represented by the petals of flowers varying in colors and radiance and the prominent layers in yellow underlining the vividness of the entire form.All these efforts are to commemorate the dynamism of nature that brings fertility back into the earth on completion of each circle of the seasons. This bondage between the earth and the seasons that rejuvenate the essential spirits of all natural inhibits of this world is in a sense of life, is somewhat ‘nondetachable’ and motherly. So when I conceived one of my latest works in oil, I named it “The Nondetachable Bondage” wherein the visibility of attachment in terms of affection and affinity are unveiled in the shades of yellows with softest contrasts and the mild and blooming forms of motherliness!
