This artwork depicts layers of colors in horizontal stripes and blocks representing different landscape forms. Fields in the foreground, a body of water merging with the horizon in the middle ground, and ending in the sky in the background. 

It has several thick layers of color, imparting texture. Some of the earlier layers are visible through the top layers. This painting is a diptych on two gallery wrapped canvases, each measuring 18x24, with finished edges. It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Srinivas

During the day, Srinivas Kathoju is a full-time software engineer. However, his art reflects another side of his personality; a passion for painting, a love of nature, and a desire to depict the vastness and majesty of the landscape. What makes his paintings unique is the way they incorporate several styles of art. The abstracted compositions have the soft atmosphere of an impressionist landscape, combined with the flat bold shapes of a post-war modern painting. Additionally, there is an ambiguity to the composition. The eye may easily register the painting as a landscape, but struggle to identify the horizon line and other landmarks within the piece. Is the block of turquoise running the length of the canvas a river, or just another line of color within the layers of stacked shapes?
