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.

Meticulously detailed drawing on archival paper. This is a color and image study for a larger piece that sold, entitled "Under the Shadow of Mortality". This title is the closest description for the feeling and atmosphere of the image. Not being a large piece, it can safely be shipped loosely rolled in a tube. This will cost a lot less than a framed piece.

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.
