I presented a slide lecture at the Karnataka Chitrakala Parishath in Bangalore last morning to a group of undergraduate students from the final year and post graduate students. Having already shown them a selection of my works a couple of years ago, I chose to put together art works from contemporary art-history to create a context of lineages, connections and points of historical interest that could perhaps form an aegis for viewing my work. Here are some of my favourites. Click on the links for more information about the artists.
