JAYANTA BHATTACHARYA

Jayanta Bhattacharya

Minimalistic rendering with layered sparks of sensuousness and eroticism hidden beneath and reflexive gestures about the socio-political implications of our space and time overwhelmed by violence, turmoil, and hostile social systems. These are the underlying artistic currents and undercurrents I experience whenever one sees the works of Jayanta Bhattacharya. For my curatorial exhibition of the North-Eastern artists for the Octave Festival organized by Rastriya Lalit Kala Akademi and Govt. of India (Trivandrum,2008) young Turks Jayanta Bhattacharya was one of my choices from Tripura. I included Jayanta's "The Road", an experimental sculpture-installation. This work (Black Pitch & Metal) has captured the uncertainty and terror of our time very meaningfully with certain motifs like the manhole, impressions of bare feet and boots and straps of bullet marks.
