Lot description
This unabashedly sensual painting on canvas is a visual and conceptual tour-de force by famed Contemporary Indian artist Chittrovanu Mazumdar. The abstract areas of the canvas that are painted in vibrant palette of reds and oranges in vivid contrast to the luminous skin of the anonymous, bare-breasted woman whose figure is only partially revealed to us as she languishes at the center of the canvas. The artist is famed for his paintings that directly confront the viewer with words and highly sexualized female figures, and speak to conflicting beliefs and illicit experiences within the individual as well as within society at large. Layering meaning within his fragmented compositions, the artist compels the viewer to witness secreted allusions he’s compiled into his work, constantly teasing out unexplained interpretations. This painting measures 36.00 x 48.00 inches and is in excellent condition, from a private UAE Collection.

Packed with visual intensity and emotion, the paintings of contemporary Indian artist Chittrovanu Mazumdar (B. 1956) are executed with elements of collage, layered imagery, dynamic brushstrokes, and abstracted forms. Mazumdar has exhibited internationally at top Museums and Galleries, including the National Gallery of Modern Art (Mumbai, India), 1x1 Gallery (Dubai), Apparao Gallery (Los Angeles, CA), Bose Pacia Modern (New York, NY), and Jehangir Art Gallery (Bombay, India), among others.
