Prajakta Potnis
Fore Play


In this work from her Soft Toy series of 2004, Potnis recreates childhood memories and anxieties on a monumental scale and sugarcoats them in pastel shades of emulsion paint, associated with the comfort of home. Th e dolls seem to come alive in a delicate interplay with artificiality but a pun in the title suggests that all is not as sweet as it first appears.
