(1924 - 2016)

Untitled



"These paintings, which were essentially representations of figures in interiors, make it difficult to disentangle figures from objects, and forms from space... [T]he interplay of figures and objects and the theatre they construed [is] richly ambivalent." (R Siva Kumar, Self Portraits and Other Early Drawings, Kolkata: Seagull Foundation for the Arts, 2020)
