Temptation - XII




33.0 x 43.5 in. / 83.8 x 110.5 cm.


Woodcut on paper

The Temptation series that Ananda Moy Banerji started traversing from the late 1980s has been his analytical approach to comprehend and express human craving for power. The focus of this work is a fruit in the hand of an individual whose one arm is only visible in the frame. The fruit denotes power that everybody wants to grasp, and for which, many would bend over backwards, as depicted by the twisted body of the other individual whose lower half curves dangerously across the picture plane. It is a comment on the lengths human beings are ready to travel to grab power.
