About the Piece

The Hindu God, Shiva, in his Nataraja pose, symbolic of the dance of destruction and creation, is regular subject matter for Weerasinghe. Whgen the artist approaches a plain canvas, he likes to begin with strong black paint –breaking immediately that contentious harmony, creating chaos followed by order and figuration. He likes to use shiny surfaces so his brush slides around smoothly, his destruction made easy ‘like that of Shiva himself’.
