Many artists of the Madras Modern movement made abstraction their visual vocabulary, emerging as it was from a strong sense of regional identity that they learnt to show in their art even as they deployed influences from various artistic movements. In this Untitled work, we find tantra-derived geometry designs, which greatly influenced Akkitham Narayanan in the Sixties, when he started understanding the intricacies of tantra art when it is ‘stripped off its philosophy’. He ably negotiates these patterns, drawing our attention to the visual vocabulary of this esoteric philosophical school.
