This 1963 untitled work in acrylic, pastel and marker on paper is from the high point of Avinash Chandra’s career in London, marking a shift to a different subject for the India-born artist. The work has been partly drawn on sensual ideas. During this time, Chandra started painting with thin, delicate lines, concentrating on the vast possibilities of representing female anatomy. The investigation of new imagery in familiar forms and a sense of anxiety between figuration and abstraction have been intrinsic to his art. The juxtaposing and arranging of female figures evokes sexual power and ecstatic energy.
