Tatva - The Essence
Six Distinctive Brush Strokes

By Sushma Bahl

Creative arts have been inextricably intertwined with life in India from the ancient to the contemporary, as the living arts of the classical, folk, tribal and contemporary traditions continue to develop and evolve, assimilating newer influences within conventional wisdom and old practices described in highly sophisticated treatises such as Silpashastra and Visnudharmottara. Drawing on abstraction of the universe and its natural habitation, Indian artistic expression has traversed widely diverging domains from mandalas (circle or polygon grid square) to mathematics, tantrik (mystical approach to spiritual ascendancy) to ritual, astronomy to cosmology, philosophical to factual and symbolic to figurative; as variedly represented in the temple statuary of the early period, subsequent illustrated manuscripts of the medieval era and increasingly now narrative and conceptual art in a wide range of media and matrix that attracts international acclaim for its intrinsic merit as well as monetary value.
