Artistic inspiration--Indian art and 'God" n Chanciousness

Most of my paintings in the exhibition titled CHANCON or Chance-Consciousness Art have an inspiration that is beyond conscious mind and thought. The paintings created themselves by one in a million or billion or still trillion possibilities. why only that chance that created what becqme my finished painting? I dont have the answer nor I am curious to find. Suffice is that with a minimum of control--normally a line here or there I create nothing from my consciousness.
Is it Indian art with roots in the old Indian philosophy of 'destiny' Prarabhda? or is it art of the blind or the art of surrender to higher forces of creativity. Is my art today with cues from likes of Kandinsky, is it the abdication of Will and Intent in creating art? Intent is but a small part of all the existent in universe. Human intent does not cover anything significant vast universe. My painting Mother is but a splash of colours freed from intention so crassly visible in contemporary Indian paintings. I feel sick at times with the near copies of figurative looted from the art of Rajasthani Miniatures, Ajanta Murals and accepted traditional styles.
I am joyous that my paintings are free from me and carry an Indian intent of no Intent.
