About the Artist
Born in Kerala, India in 1967, Bara Bhaskaran is a contemporary visual journalist and artist. Using a vibrant colour palette and joyful play with light and dark, his expressive series Rta: The Earth Mother, commissioned exclusively for AyurMa, explores the interconnectedness of the universe, from a delicate petal to the currents of the sea. Earth, according to the ancient sages, rests in the cradle of Rta, the healing mother who realigns energies and guides the harmony between humans and nature. Exploring this sacred garden of kinships, Bhaskaran describes his series as ‘part florilegium of medicinal herbs, part cosmic imagination’, in which every detail is designed to resonate to a single rhythm.
