The artist in Gayatri is under going a metamorphosis. From the method of his earlier works he has grown in to the philosophical maturity of facts. This growth is evident in the choice of themes, colors and drawings. For any painter rural scenes always tend to be nostalgic. But in Gayatri’s paintings the anxieties of the rural folks, who are afraid of the urban culture are portrayed. He copies it through de-constructional interpretation and also makes vacuum a theme. These are discussed in the ‘Beyond the dreams’ series of paintings. But here it takes shape in three stages-worries and dreams, myth and dreams, culture and mythology- and points towards the de-construction of culture. The idea that when individuals become crowd culture is created is good for discourse. But as a peasant’s moral self mixes with his dreams it becomes a hesitation. The peasants left in this world are living with the traces of this hesitation. Their compassion evolves an inner text which draws them nearer. This is the specialty of the paintings in ‘The farmer couple’ series. In this series space is not diverged in to memories and realities. It develops a confronting view point. Vertical and horizontal frames are blended and real and abstract aspects are brightened up. Thus the ray of hope of the abandoned becomes their promised land in Gayatri’s paintings. Here we can see the slick of poverty and sorrow. In his works Gayatri has tried to reproduce folklores using tribal symbols and colors. In order that these folklores not lose their identity and relevance he presents recent history as a back ground. Terrorism and communal riots achieve new dimensions in his paintings as still shapes and symbolizes lethargic figures of power. Thus at the material and spiritual levels they are the philosophies to overcome power. Green colored women, red colored men, girl on a flying fish, birds sitting in leafs cats which have become pots, butterflies begging for life, coconut palms like camera obscure are genuine forces resisting the changing life. Their irregular encroachment produce a new ideologue in Gayatri’s paintings. Hope, motherhood, memories of the village etc are the basic symbols of Gayatri’s aesthetic sense. But the simplicity and genuineness of primary colors creates a new path of organic. So animals and plants in his paintings, like traditional signs, do not get washed away in the flow of new culture and ideologies. K.V.S.NELLUVAI.
