An array of mosaic paintings by artist V Rama Krishna arrests the eye creating a sensuousness that lingers on, inviting the mind’s eye to revisit the generosity of multiple colours. The category of work is certainly abstract, leaving no clue for the spectator to gauge the source of inspiration that compelled the artist to paint what he paints.
Hazy grids of geometric figures are subtly sketched upon the negative spaces. Indeed, the mosaics hold secrets of landscapes that are inhabited by human forms. Hugely dense townships with clear lines of architectural ornamentation and small reliefs in the form of water bodies had expressed the romance of the artist who originally from idyllic and pastoral landscapes arrived to the city to study and build his career. And what immediately caught his attention was the expanse of built up spaces for human dwellings.
Therefore, he initiated upon an exciting journey when he started portraying maps of intricate landscapes. Clusters of housing with little or no relief, stretched upon his canvases. With minimal amount of colour the landscapes were as good as drawings with intricate patterning, more in tandem with architectural designs, mostly grills and frames, these works expressed imaginary sense of townships.
He has done his B F A from Potti Sri Ramulu Telugu University and MFA (PAINTING) from JNAFAU from Hyderabad. He has held several exhibition in the country as well as abroad.
