Sakti Burman
A Certain Moment in Time


"A Certain Moment in Time" captures a surreal snapshot of a fantasy formed of observance, and the root of Sakti Burman's inspiration, his memories. "It is not very easy to trace and apportion elements of images and ideas to their diverse sources, not of art, but of life and experience… …Memory shapes a great deal of what he paints." (p.49, M. Majumdar, Sakti Burman: Dreamer on the Ark, Pundole Art Gallery, 2001). ...

The childlike fantasy in this work is rendered more potent due to Burman's composition and style. "The characters who people this world are both humans and animals mingling delightfully with each other against the Elysian setting of vernal woodlands…they feature in a timeless narrative textured with most pleasingly colorful fantasy and dream." Burman's style complements his dreamscape as "his palette acquires a lovely iridescence, execution gains filigree finesse…each painting is filled with rich gorgeous detail of marbled or speckled textures, of splendid visual harmony…"(p.131 ibid).
