Inspired by nature, this artwork represents the landscape scenario with fields, lake and the distant horizon with layered sky. Thickly layered colors impart textural effects onto the painting. It reminds me of my summer days spent at my grandparents' village in the vast open fields.
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?

Beautiful composition with warm, rich color.- N Masters
"Blue Lake" has a kind of about-to-rain feel. Once again a sophisticated use of colour. Emergent forms on the right grouped with De Stael-like precision.- J Wilson
