According to Indian mythology, trees or vrikshas were the offspring of Anala who was married to the great sage Kashyapa.. They have a significant role in our cultural landscape for they not only yield fruits but provide shade as well and cover and protect the earth’s surface. Bhaskar’s leitmotif – “‘The Tree” has remained constant as part of his oeuvre over the years in his career as a painter. At a cursory glance at his body of work, though it may appear that he seems to be involved and articulating his ideas through his vision of a landscape, it is primarily the image of the tree which stands out – which he keeps returning to over the years. Bhaskar has painted and drawn trees in myriad mediums and yet everytime he has returned to it with a new vision. In black and white, sombre greys or bright primary colours, the tree stands out resplendently, a sentinal to remind us of the havoc we seem to cause on the sacred face of the earth in our pursuit of selfish interests.
