The marshlands were my inspiration.  My thickly layered colors and texture convey the physical nature of the marshes and the landscape elements.  The horizontal stripes and blocks represent different landscape forms: fields in foreground, a body of water merging with the horizon in the middle ground, and the sky in the background. 

This painting is on gallery wrapped canvas with black 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?
