“….and my images - the yearning hand, the half moon, the banana leaves, most of all the women - are all part of a simple past, and the dreams of a magical childhood.”

Amiya’s statement is found in social reality. Since his natural diffidence prevents him from voicing his innermost thoughts and feelings, he turns, like so many social mutes before him to a more articulate medium than human speech.

Amiya imbues his paintings with deepened emotions and sensitivity through a highly personal palette and iconography. In particular throughout his works images of outstretched hands, chairs, the moon, flora and drapery, inhabit his dreamy, somewhat surreal canvases. His hues range from burgundy to ochre to browns and rust, and to blues. Women populate his creative realms, depicted from the black with bare shoulders, from the side with long tresses. Surrounding these figurative subjects and elements are the architectonic devices of spatial dimension which he deploys, columns and arches, steps and staircases, open windows and trellises, and black-and-white check board parquet. Bikash Bhattacharjee, the late eminent senior Bengali artist, has been a principal influence of his work.
