Artist
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?

    Artist Statement

    Nature has a tremendous influence on my work. I love painting abstract landscapes depicting vast fields, mountains, and horizons. I feel they give a sense of flexibility, freedom, and openness to an art lover, to which their own imagination can be added while they view the painting.

    My work mostly consists of building layers and imparting textural effects using different media. Currently I am using oil colors and I love the creamy consistency of the paint and forgiving quality enabling to blend and mix the colors. I paint on canvas and wooden panels of varied sizes.

    I am fascinated by the works of Van Gogh, Monet and Gerhard Ritcher. I draw great inspiration from their works.

    My passion and love towards nature and art made me an artist, and I will nurture this for the rest of my life.

    "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.
