Who • The Artists
Avijit Mukherjee’s minimalist works are complex, dense and intricate and though often displayed as a series of connected images, each individual piece conveys a unique idea. He examines and reworks the human face and form infusing it with an idiosyncratic and unconventional aesthetic and pours the mixture into a technically sound, stylistically sophisticated mould which offers the viewer an intimate glimpse of his variegated world.
These images are akin to a psychologically charged hall of mirrors where the representations of the human form whether quirky or banal, knowing or innocent, all have a degree of sharpness. In what they attempt to depict, these works go beyond the comic or the grotesque and are full of insight and vigour.
