All great masters of art have acknowledged the importance of line in art, be it drawing, painting, sculpture or graphics. K.M. Adimoolam, Adi as he was called fondly by friends and associates, was indeed a Master of Line. He had said, “What are my drawings? They mean a lot more than telling something to the viewers through them – the vibrant qualities which are felt when the practical or strong sweeps of these lines pierce through the space, the amazing features indicating the three dimensions, the impressions I had gained from artistic creations from all over the world at different points of time, even though the line behaved in a fragile manner, its fascination which seemed to overpower me – my drawings mark my endeavours to express all these in my own special way”. He further said, “It has been my objective to establish my drawings, be they model studies or my own imaginary compositions, as my own perceptions, bereft of any influences and impressions from others”.
