ANAN­DA­JIT RAY

The Ideal Home and Garden - - Art Speak -

Do dreams have struc­ture? Do they have di­rec­tion or are they re­ally point­ers - a jux­ta­po­si­tion of het­eroge­nous el­e­ments that have come to­gether sub­con­sciously from every­day events and as­pi­ra­tions? Anan­da­jit Ray is in­ter­ested in the struc­tural con­nec­tiv­ity within the vis­ual sur­face. His works are, in fact, ar­ti­facts that ex­ist in their own right. The paint­ing, ‘En­nui’ fea­tured here is any­thing but - the tire­less work that has gone into the sur­re­al­is­tic im­agery of the ob­jects of every­day life and their treat­ment is to be mar­velled at. The logic of the com­po­nents of the paint­ing emerges de­spite the seem­ing ran­dom­ness of the ob­jects; the dream thought, non se­quen­tial and non lin­ear, must com­plete it­self with the rea­son­ing mech­a­nism of our own vis­ual sense.
