Sohan Qadri travelled widely through India and the world before settling in Copenhagen where he practiced art and taught yoga. Spiritually inclined since childhood, he sought expression in painting and poetry; he wrote on his spiritual quest and on his painting process. In this Untitled work, he uses white bands—depicted like energy bands with their uneven, throbbing lines—to denote higher consciousness. The two vertical bands conjoined to a circular one derive their life force from the smaller green field of energy in the centre of the work, whose presence is sharpened by the black background, perhaps denoting universal consciousness.
