Nilotpal Sinha     Workshop series(3)     Acrylic on canvas     48″ x 36″     1991

This acrylic painting that participated in one of my solo exhibition at Academy of fine arts, Kolkata in 1991 and I did this in the same year. This artwork of the previous workshop series has features that The Telegraph mentioned in art review in 1991 :

“..group of workers is placed against a background crowded with pulsating details of things and objects native to a factory workshop. But they also include figures of fairy tale characters–a lady in a flowing gown and a winged human–adding an imaginative dimension to the treatment of the theme.  All the form and figures, given bristly distorted figuration that stem from an expressionist approach, melt into a total designal unit sprawled across the entire pictorial space. The central figures either distractingly stand out as in the two acrylics or are harmoniously merged with background details as in the more attractive ink and gouache given the same title.” ( Mr. Manasij Majumder, the art critic of Telegraph mentioned here another acrylic work that  exhibited with the above painting and ink, gouache works on paper are not posted here.)

N.B. This is to let you know to say sorry that a mistake happened in earlier posts, that’s the name of the newspaper which I did typing is wrong. You should read The Telegraph instead of  The Statesman, both news paper published from Kolkata regularly.
