  • Amritam Das
    Amritam Das was born in Murshidabad, West Bengal 1982. He completed his Graduation and Post Graduation from Kala Bhavana, Visva Bharati University, Santiniketan in Painting 2008 and 2010. Amritam’s work presents us with a thick and dense surface, full of organic shapes and forms. The strength and vitality of such a surface evokes traces of gestural movements, which brings to mind the dual presence of abstraction and expressionism in his works. However, it is the opposite which is true in his case, for his works are largely born out of a continuous engagement with Nature. Like a Botanist, he observes, selects and records the different impressions that nature leaves in our mind. These are impressions to be found in the barks of old trees, in the surface of dry leaves, in the rough texture of the soil of Santiniketan. He rearticulates these imprints in his canvases, with ease and freedom, and as a result we come across a vision which reconstitutes nature but in fragments. In some of his works, it is possible to identify the suggestion of a human figure or other creatures within these organic shapes and forms, but largely the flow of lines and colors dissolve them into an abstract rhythm. It is perhaps this rhythm that he relates to, a rhythm that is to be found in Nature, and nowhere else.
