Jeram Patel, the moody artist from Baroda, may not have intended his abstract works to create alternate landscapes. But the amorphous shapes of his oeuvre speak of nature’s journey from ancient times. This Untitled work presents an assortment of forms that together appear like patterns on the face of Himalayan mountains at extraordinary heights—devoid of vegetation, pure rocks bearing marks of the passage of time in the form of crevices, the path of a lost stream, and even palaeolithic impressions when the rocks were part of some other land forms.
