Broken Existence

Text by Neha Gupta

Anando Dutta’s work is aptly titled Fractures In Colours for it wisely glares at the flaws in humankind

Design in art can be manipulated to emulate the nuances of humanity – evil or kind. And these emulations can only be clever figments of what we envisage. Anando Dutta’s Fractures In Colours is one such interpretation – inspired from the many rants and voices that his domestic help brings with her each week. Hope and longing for equality and respect are the shades on his canvases that stand out in bold imagery for anyone to deduce this depiction in their understanding of life. The hues fall short a few notches from vibrancy, stopping at a tint that screams alive, yet morbid. All this is a mash of the hostility in which we as humans have unfortunately adapted to breed with messy borders and all too familiar distorted facades.

Fractures In Colours will be available for viewing by appointment at ARTISANS’, Mumbai.
