Akbar Padamsee
Grey Nude


"It's far more exciting for me as a painter, to work in grey or sepia. The brush can move freely from figure to ground, and this interaction offers me immense formal possibilities. As I was working on a large canvas I would structure it loosely with broad strokes of the brush, and only then place in the figures. Planes were created at a number of junctures where they intersected, introducing yet another dimension." - AKBAR PADAMSEE
