Black Water Pond

10 monthly payments of £350.00 0% APR
This piece of work is inspired by the famous black water pond In Ceylon surrounded by the historical ruins of a monastery named after the pond. Centuries old stories, myths even now gives a mystical aura to the abandoned landscape and gardens the pond sits in. This painting explores the the mystical beauty of the dark pond while mapping the architectural elements of the site. The stories of the locations relate all the way back to era of Demon emperor Raavan and his abduction of SIta from India. I have been long fascinated by this monastery complex since my days as an architecture student and done many studies in terms of mapping and noting architectural planning of the site. This is my attempt at interpreting the Black Water Pond it self as the central element of the site and painting its personality as i see and feel it. The dark mulled water, yet with so much history that i feel gives character to the whole site. A conceptual interpretation.
