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.
