According to Chaudhuri:

"My current work is involved with space, which is full of energy. I use repetitive visual elements and meditative process to energize the whole space. The highly structured slowly changing imagery is a close resemblance of my deep state of mind. It is emblematic of modern time mixed with personal feeling and impression. It is important to think continuously."

The Works

Uprooted, 48"x48" acrylic and oil

Puberty, 24"x24" acrylic

The womb, 24"x24" acrylic

"His current work has become more, or one could say, less geometric, far more colorful with a clear bright palette and greater sophistication in choices, and so musical, how much a parallel to jazz or Phillip Glass I would let others say. The simplicity of his forms has given way to a greater complexity but the fundamental structure of his work, the terms he selects for himself, is always quite explicit. Clearly, a greater momentum and confidence is evident."
- Robert Lee, Director, Asian American Art Center

The repetitive pattern-like compositions of Bivas are breathtaking. The choice of colors and the mesmerizing effect of the visuals shows an artist who understands the intricate working of the human mind.
