Lot description
"Untitled" (Stretched Bodies) (2008) is a stunning abstract square canvas by internationally famed Contemporary Indian artist, Bose Krishnamachari. This work is part of the artist's ongoing iconic "Stretched Bodies" series of large-scale abstract acrylic paintings that deal with the relationship of color, pattern and composition in a unique and exciting manner connected to urban art and the abstraction of text and graffiti into intersecting marks and lines in bright neo-pop colors. This large painting-nearly four by four feet in dimensions unframed-is one of the most visually successful and appealing works from the Series, as the dialogue of color and composition here is both harmonious and quiet as well as frenetic and intense. There is room in the painting to relax and contemplate as well as become absorbed into the abstract world of Krishnamachari. This work is unframed and in excellent condition.
