Abstracted landscape and lake at sunset, with the last light of the day illuminating the sky and fields in purples, greens and reds. Layers of color in horizontal and vertical stripes and blocks. Srinivas says he was inspired by vast open fields and horizons that end in skies.

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?
