Sadhan Naskar’s works are an outcome of her long term engagement with research and experimentation with a plethora of material and media as an effort to understand the nature and language of mixed media art in contemporary times. Her work projects an ontological journey of a researcher/artist that has the sensibilities as well as critical awareness of the existential notion of one’s own reality. From cigarette buds, foils, wax, tissue paper to ink and soot, she amalgamates diverse materials to create a textured and patterned oeuvre that resonates the contemporary reality perceived through an existentialist perspective. The abstract quality in her work has an individualistic idiom that cannot be confined within any particular trajectory; rather there is a tactile sensibility to create a corporeal body that invokes metaphysical ideas about time, space and reality. The current body of work titled ‘The Nature of Isolation Containing the Transient Wings’ given for the show Material Metaphor explores the critical experiences of isolation dissociation and existential crisis happened during the recent pandemic crisis relating it with the Greek myth of Daedelus and his exile in his own labyrinth built for King Minos.
