About Artist

Abir Patwardhan coaxes metal towards the condition of fruit. His sculptures set the blood singing; they remind us of the primal experiences of the artisan’s quest, of seed and afterbirth, of fire melting the darkness at the cow-dust hour and great trees crashing in a forest, of banana shells and sleeping rocks, of empty nests and teeming pods, of burning feathers and tumescent bowls. Patinated and buffed to convey the intensity of the organic, these germinal and arboreal forms are animated by a gorgeous velveteen hint of the sinister. It is as if Abir has secreted the luminous darkness that leaks from the primordial forces of regeneration and decay, to make sculptures that gleam with a mysterious energy.
