Ujan Dutta, the youngest artist in this exhibition is still in the process of establishing his style. A self-taught artist, he spent his childhood learning and doodling with his artist father. On first- look his characters have a certain Romanesque- Western feel.
There is a quintessential lucidity in his works — the turbulent seas are most relaxing, the blazing fires have a cooling effect and the snow peaks just seem to melt. Dutta’s format of work so far has been small and paper is the medium he is most comfortable with.
The detailed landscapes are like a shringar for the simply executed divine figures that play in these gardens as seen in his Radha Krishna. The divine have always been a source of inspiration and will continue to inspire.
Images will evolve to reflect changing times. When nothing is stagnant then how can we expect our Gods and Goddesses be? Artists through their myriad imagination make us change as well and force us to see different forms and accept these forms. Times change, people change and so do the imageries of our gods and goddesses.
