Krishen Khanna, OK TATA, 2005
. "The visible image is one of urgent instability. A truck hurtles across the frame, its heavy form careening off the road in vertiginous imbalance. Almost audibly, its heavy load of logs seems to wobble and veer to the left, entrapping the single labouring figure within its heavy grip. O.K. Tata - the nonchalant signage that marks most Indian trucks is barely visible through the layers of incremental dust." - Gayatri Sinha .

Place your bid on this work by Krishen Khanna before our Summer Online Auction ends on 14 June.

"[The] Human being is an enigma, and what he creates should also be an enigma." - Himmat Shah
.

Himmat Shah's enigmatic sculptures of heads lack facial features and are instead, often marked by referential lines and hatches. .

Through his terracotta and bronze sculptures, Shah addresses his ongoing fascination with the cause and effect of the presence of human beings and civilisation on the earth. His faceless heads evoke the anonymous presence of existences lost to memory.

Zarina Hashmi, Untitled (Home is a Foreign Place)
.

Notions of exile and ideas of 'home' lie at the crux of Hashmi's minimalist work. "The lines of Zarina Hashmi's woodcut-printed and paper-woven maps evoke territorial borders, historical ruptures, and communal scars with a visual language that looks like Minimalism and moves like poetry."- Kaelen Wilson Goldie.

Sailoz Mukherjea, Hill Fair, soon to go #onsale at our Summer Online Auction on 13-14 June 2018. .

Sailoz Mukherjea was known for his use of a vibrant European palette in his idyllic landscapes and portraits of women. In this small-format work, a throng of men and women evoke the bustle of a village fair, set among trees and nature.
.

Mukherjea trained at the School of Art in Calcutta in 1928, and visited Europe in 1937-38. This trip had a profound impact on his art. Mukherjea went on to train leading modernists such as Ram Kumar, Arpita and Paramjit Singh, and Jagdish Swaminathan at the Sarada Ukil School of Art. #arttrivia .

Anjolie Ela Menon, Untitled. .

Throughout her career as a painter, Anjolie Ela Menon has regularly re-envisioned her role as an artist. Menon's early canvases exhibited the varied influences of van Gogh, the Expressionists, Modigliani, Amrita Sher-Gil, and M. F. Husain. 
Mainly portraits, these paintings, according to the artist, “were dominated by flat areas of thick bright colour, with sharp outlines that were painted 'with the vigour and brashness of extreme youth'.” Menon admits that her work has undergone tremendous changes with every phase of her life and that as she has grown older, the narcissism of the early years has been transformed into nostalgia for the past.

"Painting for me is a process of discovering oneself...it becomes a metaphor of a larger thing," - Amit Ambala.
.

Born in 1943, Ahmedabad, Amit Ambalal was a businessman, until he became a full-time painter in 1979. So taken in was he by his passion of becoming a renowned painter - his childhood dream - that he sold off his family owned business in 1977 to pursue this passion. Amit was a 57 at the time. .

Amit Ambalal's Worlds Apart is currently on display at the Saffronart gallery in Mumbai. Drop by to see it before it goes #underthehammer at our Summer Online Auction on 13-14 June 2018.
