Not the knowledge of the external but the saturating unitary experience of the inner.

In my art I work with chance and attempted negation of conscious, well planned, control of the artistic expression. I surrender so the Light will shine on creativity. The joining of Chance as a higher order of things with a consciousness that comes from within and transforms our ‘seeing’ is what my art is about. I call it Chance-Consciousness Art or Chancon.The second part of the book is Called Mona Lisa does not smile anymore. The art work is a symbol of the so called Renaissance society. In the very time Vasco da Gama was journeying to India and would begin the story of pain sufferings and subjugation of Indians—the first experience of Colonialism.

The rest of the world would suffer no less—slave trade, forced conversions, atrocities and Inquisition in the name of religion. It was a false Renaissance which caused untold suffering to people all over the world and the Mona Lisa’s smile was not shared by subjugated races. The second part deals with Indian art that was called inferior by Western colonists. This was the ruse of the colonizers to dub everything from the subjugated people to be inferior.

The ancient Hinduism has a far deeper humanitarian philosophy at its back and the art created there from had a much bigger aesthetics root in Humanism. I have argued that the Greco-Roman art the West inherited was founded on arrogance, war and slavery and was therefore inferior as humanizing instrument.

Indian art is poetic, spiritual, secular and with a great wisdom and philosophy behind it. I have touched upon the narratives of travelers from Europe and China. While the former are very dismissive of Indian, art, religion, culture and people the Chinese on the other were highly respectful and record the flourishing India more truthfully. Chine se traveled as pilgrim and seekers of Eternal truth in the religion of Gautam Buddha.It is important to place all art in the context of humanity and Indian art acquits itself very well where as the same can not be said of West.

Hinduism never demonized another faith and Indians had a placid curiosity and respect for other faiths
