There’s a sense of romanticism in the works of Jehangir Sabavala – the artist who completed his early art education in the ateliers of Paris, transcending that training and yet retaining a romanticism in his works. While several of his contemporaries were creating works of art that brought out the desolation, drudgery and the social injustices surrounding them, Sabavala chose, instead, to concentrate on ideas that appealed to him. In this work, which the artist executed in 1961, it is Sabavala’s cubist influence that is its essence, complete with geometry and angularity of lines that allows for the work to shine through. The lines are bold, the slashing diagonals, the puzzle-like painting… there’s tremendous discipline in this art.

Bandwalla, by Krishen Khanna, 1988, Oil on canvas. Exhibited at #MasterpieceFair by @dag_modern.
.
After a diverse series of paintings depicting war, persecution and humanity, Krishen Khanna began to paint and sketch bandwallas or bandmasters who were usually seen in north Indian weddings to play music for the celebrations. As India had been at war with Pakistan, China and more recently, Bangladesh the artists made reference to the soldiers through these bandwallas and their military style uniforms on large canvases. He represented the broad narratives depicting mixed social references, for example, the impact of military leaders and their rulings on the common man, caste inequality, labour and everyday survival.
.
In this painting, Khanna has depicted four bandwallas engaged in playing their grand instruments and synchronising their tunes in their red ensembles, buckled belts and shoulder epaulettes. The red colour of their uniform conveys the energy that they emanate. The artist portrays these men as practicing and creating music with a sense of happiness, but that is only for the show. If we pause the tunes and remove the uniforms, these men return to not so extravagant and precarious lives on the streets of Delhi. Khanna’s humanist rendering captures the harsh realities of their lives, playing long hours of music for little money in uncomfortable uniforms that play on people’s memories of military bands and their precision.

George Keyt often painted women, those he saw around him in his native Kandyan hills, and those from mythology. There was no difference between them, extending his thinking of the woman as a goddess, the belief arising from his reading of Buddhist and Hindu texts and his own submission to their beauty, character and personality. In this beautifully nuanced painting, therefore, he brings together what the Sri Lankan artist had gone on to create as his signature inputs, but with an even greater degree of sophistication.

It had only been a few years since 1964, when the artist had a life-changing mystical experience at the Amarnath cave of his native Kashmir. The encounter drew his art and poetry into the folds of spiritual philosophies of Shaivism and Sufism. He veered towards the study and interpretation of tantra as a philosophy and tantric art, also emerging in his art as he went on to be one of the pioneers of the neotantric art movement in India. This Untitled oil work from 1969 by G. R. Santosh is from his early years of exploring neo-tantra art, when his own modernist abstract practice of the time impacted his tantra geometric abstractions. Find us at Booth A-37 at Masterpiece London. The work on display will enthral you, visit us to find out more.

F.N Souza

If there is one Indian modernist identified closely with the painting of nudes, especially female nudes, that would have to be F. N. Souza. His art work, Temple Dancer, which the artist finished in 1957, is a fine example of his oeuvre. The figure here has a peaceful, reflective expression. Like many of the other nudes that he created, inspired by the works of Manet, Picasso and Rouault, this work, too, goes beyond the boundaries of convention. Here is a woman who isn’t merely innocent; like several of his other nudes, this female figure, too, is iconic – determined, bold, an uninhibited sexual being, she is comfortable, quite literally, in her own skin. We are excited to display this work at masterpiece London

Bikash Bhattacharjee
Bhattacharjee’s characters come through in his works as more than just representative of their class, imprinted instead as individuals, each with a well-etched subjectivity. Do look out for the stunning work we are bringing to Masterpiece art fair (Booth A-37). The art work titled Ceremony explains the artist’s, and other people’s disenchantment with life as they are reduced to obeying commands. The artist said, ‘each of my paintings is a definite social statement’. It was in the ’70s that he began to paint portrait-based canvases, placing a human figure against a backdrop of some socio-political situation. He preferred to paint women protagonists for he believed that ‘woman is first casualty of man’s moral and social degradation’. The work we bring to London goes behind the appearance to grasp the reality of experience, but like all realists he uses the illusoriness of the appearance in his quest to convey what he believes is the human predicament and quality of life in urban India.

Avinash Chandra
London has been an exciting space for Avinash Chandra. His creativity soared and the visuals of his art began to change. Though his colour pallette remained bright and lively, the expressionistic recognizable landscapes now morphed like patterned mosaics. The work on display will have heightened visual signals so they seem excitedly alien as well as comfortingly familiar at the same time.
Visit us at Booth no. A37, Masterpiece London art between 29th June to 5th July to witness the artists transformation.
