Brief Description A deeply moving painting, this work by Sadanandan is self evident. The passing away of a human has been painted horizontally, while the heads of brooding, sorrowful figures, looms in the background. The colours add turmoil to the scene that is already fraught with intense emotions. A master abstractionist, Sadanandan's art reflects an engagement with Western techniques, yet stems from a deep rooted connectedness to his identity.
