From time immemorial right up to the present day, expression in art has been based on the human form. Be it a cut-rock, wall paintings, frescoes, sculptures or simply paintings, they have almost always found their bases in the human figure.

While human physiology remains unchanged; the artist’s view of the human form in terms of how to relate art to reality, has undergone a metamorphosis from age to age in keeping with the cultural language of the time. Thus the natural expression of the human form in art is controlled by a socially constructed nature of reality that is, culture, which again is varied through time and place. For instance, the Western way of portraying the human form is very different from the Indian way. The west equates reality with the world as perceived in the ordinary working state. It denies credibility to realities, which are perceived in other types of awareness.

On the other hand, the Indian perspective dismisses the physical world as “Maya” – the illusion. It considers reality as something beyond the physical frame of the body. It goes in search of the ‘essence’ of reality. In India the human form could be a myth, a metaphor, or merely a symbol. From the fluid rounded Harrapan torso to the elegantly being Apsaras of the Ajanta; from the dancing forms of Tanjore wall paintings to the sharp and angular faces of the Jain miniatures; and from the fish-eyed females of the Pahari paintings, to the folk inspired forms of the Kalighat Pats ….the contemporary Indian artist indeed has had a rich heritage to harvest.

This Collection has been created not to fit a particular theme. Instead, it merely represents what the artist has created, with relevance to the thematic concept. Hence, the collection is free from any preconceptions whatsoever; that is, seeing the work, and selecting it have both been based on its quality and not relevance to the human form..
