Motion. it’s how we move around. i see it everyday. Car move all the time. I see what it can do too. When cars move, they take you to places, but they can also be destructive too. Think about car accidents. We move so much, that sometimes it can lead to dire consequences.Posted By Megha On 07.02.2012 @ 8:03 am
somnath hore “My sphere of activity has been primarily based in Calcutta, Delhi and Santiniketan. At the art school, for reasons primarily political and financial, I concentrated on the cheaper medium of wood cuts. Had I not accepted Atul Bose’s invitation to join the Indian Art School [College?] and assume the responsibility of establishing a printmaking department in that institute, my life would have flown down a different course. The Delhi phase of my oeuvre came as a challenge. I was constantly encountering new innovations from various countries in the numerous exhibitions, and was imbibing knowledge about techniques and processes from journals, magazines, books.”—excerpts from An Autobiographical Statement
