Aquatint and etching on handmade paper
That Shyamal Dutta Ray noticed things generally overlooked by the ordinary multitude is borne out by this Untitled colour intaglio work. Here, he brings focus on the half-broken shell of a nut lying by the roadside, hit by thousands of feet during the day but now in a found abode by the side. That has allowed fresh life to nurture in its belly, depicted in bright blue and cream, standing out brightly in the black-brown palette. By cleverly placing the shell in the front, the artist adds a sense of distance to the road that is visible in the background along with its kerbstones.
