Perhaps due to the diversity and depth of
Indian culture, people carry many different images of India.
Contemporary art can act as a common language to reveal the
India beyond the images and to lead us
to a greater understanding within, for there is something that
transcends the diversity of images,
a spirit that is contemporary and a presence that is universal,
even in its Indianness,
above all there is a sense of creative adventure that reaches
out to something beyond the image,
through the image,be it figurative or abstract.
This, I feel, is what captivated me - the glimpse of a window
in the image, opening to a space beyond."
