Dyed paper pulp cast
Dattatraya Apte followed up his art education in Baroda with a stint at the Glasgow School of Art and has created a career as a printmaker who also works with unconventional materials, including pulp. The work’s surface is the key to understanding it, for each, he says, ‘tells its own story’. This sculptural relief is from a four-piece collection and has impressions from wooden blocks on a paper pulp cast which was created by first dyeing the pulp and then casting the mould. Apte intended to make the work seem like a historical manuscript carrying within it mythical secrets.
