The nebulous shapes in Ambadas’ works never ascribed to a tangible definition but were definitely a part of a world that was interconnected but not overtly so. The three forms in this work have a relation with each other without which the work would become something else. The saffron pattern in the foreground could be a flower in a vase by the window leading the eye to the garden yonder with two green bushes. Or it could be a hilltop from which the hillock rolls down to the plain where bushes abound. The earthy palette denotes an Indian inspiration.
