Refresher on the Art Front...

As I stated in my inaugural blog post, my current artistic concentration is a focus on the political and cultural situation in Kashmir. Right now, I am doing chiefly portraiture of the inhabitants of the region, focusing on color to illustrate the "fabric" of this culture. Hopefully I will shift gears a little deeper into this topic, focusing on the Hindu - Muslim cultural conflict. Recently I learned about the Line of Control (or LoC) that divides Kashmir between Pakistan and India. This line is the reason for this 80 year clash. Depending on what thoughts wander to mind, I want to use line work to navigate around the idea of this cultural and political boundary. More is soon to come.
