||Although Chowdhury has painted oils, his forte is painting in
ink, water colour and pastel. The sinuous line contouring the
flaccid figures, the cross-hatching to achieve tonal variations
distinguish Chowdhury's paintings which show men and women in
enigmatic situations with provocative gestures placed in a dark
dream-like space. There is a bit of the theatre of the absurd.
When we refer to Jogen as an iconoclast, it is with admiration
for his magical combinations of the real and the unreal, the seen
and the unseen, the familiar and the forbidden.
