Bose Krishnamachari’s arrival to prominence in the Nineties coincides with the opening up of India’s economy. The landscape of India had a marked impact on many of the contemporary artists, including Krishnamachari, who created abstract works in powerful brushstrokes and thick bright hued paints. His series, Stretched Bodies—to which he keeps adding worksis a sequence of giant, psychedelic acrylics, which, according to some reports, were born, much later, as a response to the comatose state that the artist was in, due to severe health issues, between the ages of seventeen and twenty-one.
