Arty-Fact: “The painting started out with a number of thumbnail drawings to get the right proportions and form keeping in mind that the whole painting is created with a single line dividing the canvas into two equal spaces, the spiral form growing progressively bigger towards the edge. This was then drafted onto the canvas.” – Lakshmi Mohanbabu
Fibonacci Nautilus Series: "The Fibonacci Nautilus series is based on our existence and our interdependence and interconnectedness with the world we live in; our immediate surroundings; the network of friends and family and ultimately the universe. The focus of this series is based on finding the harmony in art inspired by totally different cultures or styles which have roots in the same inspiration or interpretation."
"Our DNA and our galaxy both follow a spiral like the Nautilus, which is the form used. The spiral is seen in all aspects of life from the unfurling of a leaf bringing forth new life to the unwinding of a spool of thread - like the unravelling of the mysteries of life. The spiral serves the creative purpose of giving expression and form to something that does not yet exist, something new and unique. A single and continuous line divides the whole canvas. This creates a shape, which outlines the void that reflects the same shape in rotational geometry creating two spaces; what is there and what is not; the known and the unknown; the yin and yang." ~ Lakshmi Mohanbabu
