Artist Srinivas Kathoju takes inspiration from vast open fields, mountains, and horizons that end in skies. "The fields represent the foreground with thick paint imparting texture," says Srinivas. "The horizon is represented in the middle ground where the fields and mountains blend with the sky, while the background represented by the skies." The warm strands of clouds signal a golden sunset as the evening touches on the open fields and mountains that glimmer in rich purple color shades.

Srinivas Kathoju

Frisco, Texas

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?

"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.

Very original idea. Reminds me of Paul Klee. You certainly got the colours right.

  • Beautiful composition with warm, rich color.
