The Kamarupa series of paintings developed from abstract paintings, in which sections removed from large expressive canvases were re-hung, framed in white gesso panels.
I began to experiment with the use of cloud forms, fleeting and boundary-less. Alongside this practical development was a continuing interest in the names used to classify and make sense of the world. A previous work involved the discovery and naming of asteroids by a nineteenth century painter, Hermann Goldschmidt. I came across the history of Luke Howard and his definitions of clouds - cumulus, cirrus, etc. It seems that by concentrating on the small essential elements of nature, he was hoping to gain a sense of the bigger picture.
