Artist's description:

Oil on heavy duty canvas, 55x55" with additional 3-5 border; needs frame or stretching to hang.

History of Violence has an abstract God figure on an altar and supplicants; it represents the oppression practiced by many religions as well as the tendency of religion to inspire untold violence and inhumanity. The prone figures and red interspersed throughout imply oppression and violence.

My art is a reflection of all things going on inside me. I internalize my environment and the critical elements show up in my work. These include abstracts, figurative compositions and realism. As a transplant to the US from India I experienced the angst caused by cultural and physical dislocation; with experience and time, the tensions between the pull of the homeland to the adopted land continue to shift and play into my work. Several recent paintings deal with my experience with change and the rate of transition in the 21st century. The mashing of global cultures and thought can be felt in the bewildering cast and the unprecedented etiquettes in several works. River of no Return, Immigrants etc. are part of the recent series that project the angst of entering a new era in human existence.
