Human civilization has developed itself through the process of understanding of various manifestations of the basic elements. This process has given birth to all inventions and developments. I could see many stages of this journey. From the water-starved hamlets to most modern cities, I have seen and sensed them all. Arid villages are lured by a mirage and affluent urbanite also chase a self created mirage, mirage of greed. A thin chord relates these dreams. From villages to metropolises, from shanties to palaces I have roamed through them all. Were the seeds of creation sowed from these journeys? color was the medium of expressing these experiences. But, have I captured the ideas or I have mastered only the medium? Every creation aspires to crystallize one ray of glorious thought. In this process the self turns transparentand stares in my face. I keep trying to create something immortal. That process shakes all the poise, pretensions . What remains is the urge for creation. This urge can only be compared to the tireless efforts of Bhagirath to bring the Ganga on earth. I place myself as one of followers of this Bhagirath.emotion and creation- the unending process continues and I become a mere spectator.A painting does not tell you the inspiration of the artist. A critic, armed with a well oiled thought process can understand these inspiration and tries to explain and evaluate it. However when the artist explains the process of his creation, the art finds its meaning. I know that not many artist subscribe to this theory. I can name only a few artists in the past who held such belief. Wasily Kandisky, Brancusi, Piet Mandrion and Mark Rothako. Their creations reflected impressions of philosophy, nature. These facets could be found in the transformation, migrations of these four artists. I know, there could be many more who have spent their lives exploring the world with their tools of art. One can trace their journey through their creations. They also throw some light on the development of human civilization, its urbanization. In India the process of urbanization started with the turn of the 21st century this change is reflected in the works of contemporary artists. Transformations and migrations make an important impact on the creation of any artist. The period between 13th Century and 19th century stands testimony to this. We can trace the impact of change from South India to Central Asia through various movements like Sufism, Varkari as also from the work of saints, artists of this period. We can see Asian artists being clubbed and categorized on the basis of Western yardsticks. However the effort to study Asian art on the basis of development in this region is still lacking. Much needs to be done on this front and I wish Asian universities and critiques initiate this process sooner the better.History has seen many transformations resulting out of political developments. In the event of an attack on any civilization, poets. Writers, saints and artists are the keepers of much needed equilibrium. This is evident in the contemporary history of Indian. It can also be seen through the two wars that modern world has gone through. Change brought about by these developments is thrust upon the communities involved in this process. The impact of it shatters all hitherto held beliefs and values. During this process an artists guides the society with his art which tries to hold a delicate balance between the old and the new. Let us now see what does we achieve through exhibitions. How they are used to propagate concepts like culture and religion, to create awareness in society.
