Dashrath’s uncanny understanding of space, light, form, colour
and texture and their interconnectivities has enabled him
to produce an amazing array of work in oils, watercolours,
drawings and collages.At 80, he moved into digital media!
 
Even though each medium and its imagery were perfectly
evolved, he resisted the need to formalise that particular body
of work as ‘his style’, and risk getting type cast or iconified.
His work was his ‘search’ and he is still actively following that
ideology.
