Creativity

Inspiration from our artists, musicians and writers; reviews on books, music, films, exhibitions and performances from across the world.

Surendra observed the growing of the rice in Nagano, Japan and documented his findings with his new digital camera, saying that “This year has seen a leap from many years of black and white photography into colour.”

Neeti shows a selection of her paintings in our online gallery. “When I am able to let go, a peaceful calm takes over and the painting flows through me.”

Shunyo Mahom’s calligraphies in our art gallery: Zen Pearls. He writes, “Each image of this series reflects the spontaneity and spaciousness of Zen as well as a natural sense of grace and beauty.”

A series of Avinasho’s playful photographs. “I never wanted to portray the world as a postcard and so started to ‘play’ with my camera without ever reading the instruction manual…”

A fable by Madhuri. “When we look out from our open houses into the forest, the brightest of birds have come back to us; and our labours are gentle, and enough to feed us; but we no longer wrestle and hustle…”

Petra Huber’s photographs of olive trees and others that grow on the Greek island Corfu. “Trees give me a feeling of peace and protection…”

Navyo’s collection of b/w photos of staircases he took in Italy. “The curve of a spiral stair echoing the feminine, the angled corners of a boxed stairwell the masculine. It’s a play of form the architects clearly intended and can be seen throughout the country.”
