Ink and dye on handmade paper
It was in the 1970s when Sohan Qadri started working on handmade paper, which responded excellently to his experiments. He would chisel through it, carve it, perforate it, and then soak with dyes, allowing the colour to travel through perforations, creating a distinct pattern on its own. This Untitled work, a late career creation, exemplifies Qadri’s experiments as he was able to create patterns that would ascribe to tantric world view of procreation—a string of dots pierces through a red universe of rather sedate lines, which it infuses with energy, forcing the red plane to bulge upon its meeting with the dots, and create something new.
