This mixed media work by Pradeepkumar charts a landscape in portrait format with a river descending the centre of the picture. Pradeepkumar weaves a narrative centred around the water body to reiterate its power, stillness and ability to destroy and flourish.
The work moves beyond notions of the scenic and picturesque to respond to the imminent climate crisis we are all faced with today. The artist projects his philosophical understandings of nature onto himself and humanity, highlighting our longstanding, affective relationship with our surroundings. The river is the protagonist that holds the image together, descending across the picture plane.
