Mystic Love

Rs.12,000 Inc. Tax

This is an image of Radha and Krishna. This pair was one of the central figures of the Bhakti movement in India which embodied certain values. Thus, the figures have been represented as common, marginalized people, as an incarnation for a mystic love. The picture shows a man who is clearly marginalized; with particular notions and customs of dressing that these marginalized people follow. These customs include certain types of piercings in the ears and the nose among many other things. However, there is a basic revelation here, as the man looks over his shoulder to find another image of a man dressed like him with a peacock feather and a flute, all the signs of the Lord Krishna. In fact, the religion of which Krishna was the central figure was an acceptance of the marginalized people of the society, thus breaking away from the Brahmin orthodoxy of the period. In this picture, the tribal man is in a state of revelation and personal identification with this particular religion. It is a question and understanding in to the deeper roots and motives of the particular religion. The painting has made completely abstract and in a modernistic manner. There is a sense of symmetry in the picture with the figures as well as the background rendered through a number of shapes. Only a few colors are used with purple and blue dominating the canvas. In fact, these two darker shades are associated most with Krishna and this religion.
