One of the most prolific re-inventors of his own style throughout his long career, Satish Gujral was not bound by the fetters of medium, material, ideology, or even inspiration. If the post-Partition years saw him navigate his personal grief through a series of works on the cataclysmic event, soon he was delving into high modernism of the 1960s and ’70s, informed in a big way by his sojourn in Mexico. He experimented with unconventional machine-age material for his abstract sculptures such as this Untitled one, which uses the popular trope of tantra redefined by him in his choice of material.
