Subrata Ghosh, the young artist, tries to touch temporality from the perspective of timelessness. The enlightened heritage of Indian classical art inspires him and helps him to build up his own idiom. He looks back towards the grand tradition of our painting and sculpture of classical era. The tranquility with the divinity of the Ajanta figuration and Gupta sculpture makes some imprint in his delineation of form. He imbibes robustness, illusion of three dimensionality from these classical traditional sources and induces a kind of sobriety through duality of light and shade in his figuration.
