Acrylic and terracotta on wood
A multi-faceted artist who worked across a range of mediums and scale, Satish Gujral was known for innovatively using material to create highly textural works. His exposure to Mexican art through training under Diego Rivera and David Alfaro Siqueiros is evident in this work with its mural-like relief, a genre Gujral excelled in. In this Untitled work shaped like a circular disc, Gujral uses a modernist vocabulary with wood as the canvas, achieving tactility through raised terracotta elements of different elevations, and inserting scripts and popular images as a comment on contemporary times.
