Woman and Child in the Street - an oil painting of India

in artzone •  last year 

DANS-LA-RUE-21.jpg
I have a particular fondness for Southern India, and it was during one of my trips which started in Chennai and ended in Kerala that I took the time to visit the Srirangam temple. It is a huge compound, one of the largest in India. Laid out in a plan of four concentric courtyards, a visitor enters through a series of immense doors, and eventually arrives at the center.

I was quite impressed by this series of sculptures and worked them into my painting. (Photo by Rajaraman Sundaram)

In this painting, I try to communicate a feeling I often have in India of movement, color, traffic, women in beautiful sarees (unfazed by the general confusion) temple sculpture, and life bubbling up everywhere.

Here is a detail of the painting:

Love this one, especially the scultpures and the bas-reliefs! It's also very equilibrated despite the quite complex composition, excellent =)
I'd love travelling to India to get influence from their fantastic architectures, so different from our European stuff.

Thank you. I think you would find great inspiration in India; the temples are fabulous.

My dad was there a few times long ago and there was a lot of big photos from India at home, definitely inspiring.
