Sankho Chaudhuri

Bronze on wooden base

Learning sculpture from Ramkinkar Baij, India’s first modernist in the genre, Sankho Chaudhuri understood that he couldn’t conform himself to the limitation of the figurative. He also realised in the course of his artistic journey that experiments in sculptural techniques could incorporate genres such as abstraction, thus, allowing artists to have their own visual vocabulary. This Untitled sculpture from the latter half of his career exemplifies the rhythm and balance that Chaudhuri achieved in his creations along with the rare subtlety and harmony.
