S. Nandagopal



23.0 x 12.0 x 5.0 in. / 58.4 x 30.5 x 12.7 cm.


Enamel on welded brass and copper

Innovations in abstract form and an emphasis on technique, reflected S. Nandagopal’s modern sensibility. His use of enamel paint seen in the multicoloured wings and the striking blue stroke on the trunk of this Untitled sculpture, highlights this point further. The base of the sculpture is held together by a ritualistic brass handbell with the top adorned by a two-headed creature, a running motif in his sculpture series. The marked metallic lines draw attention to the wings and present the idea of flight, a trope he used often.
