An experience from Thota Vaikuntam's childhood constantly surfaces through the tumult of his memory and into his work. He recalls being ill at the age of six with his mother by his side nursing him with constant care, prayers, and a healing touch only a mother can give. To him, his mother Satyamma is the fountain of creativity. She was energy, light, and humanity encompassed in a single being. With his mother as his main inspiration, Vaikuntam's canvases evoke a woman-centric universe.
