C Douglas, hailing from a coastal town far south, started as a painter at the age of twenty. That was his age in 1970 when he travelled to Madras to enroll himself at the Government College of Arts and Crafts, the premier art institution in South India. Douglas's figure is that of an unbeatable being, one that would be grateful not to have been brought forth at all. The way he vouches for it is expressive of his extraordinary meekness and tenderness of spirit. His artistry, finely drawn as it was at this stage, was to the fore as to turn the picture surface into the fictional ground or recess which his vexed figure might stay into and haunt. Douglas is able to achieve in his late works in figure turns decidedly picturesque. It turns out in the end to be amazingly constant, only a great deal more pictorial than at the beginning when he thought he was no more than seeded and conceived to be.
C Douglas is a graduate of the Government College of Arts & Crafts, Chennai. He now lives and works in Chennai. He is rated to be one of India's next big artists.

"It takes a little absence to create some presence."
