Painting is part of my ongoing series “Vatsalya” (motherly love).
The inspiration for the painting from studying elephants in their natural habitat during our trip to Kerala, India (South India) a few years back. Kerala is home to the largest domesticated population of elephants in India. Painting is a portrayal of the maternal bond between mother and calf. Elephants are the classic example of Vatsalya in the animal kingdom. The relationship between a mother and baby elephant reveals a profound level of care and tenderness.
Kalamkari is the more decorative style of Indian folk art. It is originated in Andhra Pradesh, India. Meaning of Kalamkari is Pen like (Kalam- pen, Kari-like); Its intricacy looks as fine as it done with a pen. Its also has very limited color palette: white is exposed paper, painting is drawn with black paint and only one other color than red is used to evoke the painting. I find this style very challenging. It is primarily used as textile designing. Decorative elements of Kalamkari help me transport my landscapes to the fantasy world.
