Lot Details

Experimenting with a wide array of mediums including painting, film, sculpture, and writing, the artist is most renowned for his metascapes and mirror images, which seek to address the duality of existence. Alternately, his devotion to the study of the human figure has also been a key focus in his work throughout his career. A perfect example of his preoccupation with the human figure is this silkscreen entitled "The Face". Using a neutral color palette, Padamsee not only brilliantly captures the delicacy of this man's face but perhaps more importantly, he captures the delicacy of his subjects spirit.This print is unframed and in absolutely mint condition. It comes with a certificate of authenticity fromThe Publisher. This work is from an edition of 45 measures 29.50 x 20.50 inches and is in perfect condition.

For contemporary artist Akbar Padamsee (B. 1928), the contemplative and articulative process of creation supersedes any desire to conform to any one artistic style. Ranging from figurative to abstract works, Padamsee is meticulously concerned with the use of color, line, form, space, and time within the depths of his compositions. Padamsee has exhibited at venues the world over including the Museum of Contemporary Art (Montreal , Canada), Rubin Art Museum (New York, NY), Museum of Fine Arts (Boston, MA), and Guild Art Gallery (Mumbai, India), among others.
