On the air again at Another Subcontinent

Red Field



Back in December 2004, I had a show at the Sarala Art Centre in Madras. I showed a collection of prints and collages, of which the prints were later featured at Another Subcontinent, a lively US-based site for netizens belonging to and interested in SouthAsiana. Currently, AnotherSub has very graciously displayed the collages (or "squiggle paintings" or "hybrids" -- I haven't found a particularly good handle for them -- they're not exactly paintings OR collages) at the site, in a show entitled Dit-Dot-Dash. Please go visit!

Glad you liked it! Hope you noticed "DIATOMS". Shades of molecular biology -- oh, all right, all right, just ordinary microscopy -- but I remember reading a great SF short story called Surface Tension by James Blish in which diatoms made an appearance as the "pets" of the microscopic organisms who were the protagonists of the story. Let's see if I can post a link here ... http://freesf.blogspot.com/2007/11/surface-tension-james-blish.html -- yep. There it is.

Anyway -- the point is, I always free-associated this story with my friends over at TIFR's micro-bio lab. And therefore, when I named DIATOMS, it was with pleasant memories of that distant time ...

I loved your work with the first and love this one as well. Still love my Chaiwalla! Keep dipping, dotting and dashing!
