This piece was an experiment using acrylic wall paint and pigmented pen.
It was also a preparation for the installation in Vientiane, Laos, which looks nothing like this.
This lecture gives a fairly comprehensive picture of the work done over a span of forty years from 1969 to 2009.

These drawings were done instinctively as a result of photographing during my walks. I was not interested in a one to one relationship between the photos and the drawings. Rather my desire was to deal with what had become an internal conversation between nature and my drawing tendencies. The design in these drawings which emanate from my imagination is inherent in the drawings I do which are abstract conformations of lines.
