Acrylic on paper
2001
28 × 22 in. (71.1 × 55.9 cm.)

Signed in Devanagari and dated ‘2001’ lower right

Birds, which symbolise freedom, and are thought to be a link between heaven and earth, became characteristic elements to Shyam’s oeuvre. ‘For tribal communities, art is the every day. The Gond tradition of painting murals on the walls of their dwellings is very similar to the practice of cave painting that our early ancestors practiced. Therefore, such traditions and indigenous knowledge can be thought of as a legacy to be preserved, one that comprises not just their habitat but also their ways and means of life. Referencing his rich repository of oral and traditional knowledge passed down through generations, Jangarh Singh Shyam has depicted here a bird rendered in bright colours and minute patterns.’ (Dr. Alka Pande, Jangarh Singh Shyam, From Mud Walls to Paper and Canvas, Noida, 2021, p. 33)
Condition: The paper tones of the original are slightly richer than the catalogue illustration. The paper is slightly undulating within the mount. Minor scattered creases visible along all four borders of the work, not visible in the catalogue illustration. Not examined out of frame. Overall good condition.
