One of the largest tribal communities in South Asia, the Gonds, are mainly found in Madhya Pradesh and its surrounding States. Gond paintings which is mostly "two-dimensional" in style cover numerous themes such asÂ folk stories, religion, nature etc. Their artÂ may be bursting with flamboyant hues or more controlled, in the simple sophistication use of black and white. It is interesting to observe that Gond paintings bear a remarkable likeness to Australian aboriginal art as both forms use dots or lines as fillers. The artist Durga Bai has been transforming the communities ritual performing arts into a new tradition of figurative and narrative visual art: using a variety of modern media including acrylic paintings on canvas ink drawings on paper and has created depictions of the tribal natural and mythological worlds and oral histories.

An exercise in focus and precision, Zecca creates his origami-like Collage Radii by combining fragments of his drawings, which repeat sequences of steadied, handmade ink lines that radiate from a fixed point. These collage works can mounted on museum mat board and hung as a sculptural piece or laid flat and framed behind Plexiglas.

Subject M. releases the associated negative belief system holding her wounds and pain in place, letting it dissolve and feeling the clarity of the moment. Personality-level understanding is achieved, spurred by awareness of the past life's pain which has been repeated in many incarnations. Ignited by knowledge, M. lets go of the karma in the moment and sees into a future without the habitual emotional pitfalls. Her lips are ajar, expectant as a lover's in anticipation of a kiss. Her eyes are far-reaching, projecting into the Divine. Attention is given to rendering the eyes and the lips in an effort to capture the viewer. The faces morphs and oozes out of the surface. Just as one longs for release and clarity, so the portrait comes off the page, leaning into the viewer, moving outward and toward the infinite. The eyes and lips spill out, exacerbating the feeling of yearning. A high level of detail and rendering is accomplished using the best quality charcoal and high grade watercolor paper by Arches. The paper allows for ultra fine texturing and high fidelity in the rendition of skin, hair, and light. Clarity is unmounted and will require a frame in order to hang.
A meticulously detailed composition showing swirling bands of color and suggestions of thorns in the foreground, with complex organic forms being visible beyond these shapes, creating a depth of perspective. The symbolism being the trials and tribulations of the human condition, and the strength we display in over coming them.
