Art Alive Gallery presents eminent artist Chandra Bhattacharjee’s recent series of works titled Night Forest. Following the contours and characteristics of current ecological crisis for last three years, the artist in the current collection looks as a painter who took Photography as his tool to observe the environment and painted diligently what he observed. Chandra’s oeuvre is a dense amalgamation of fine strokes and intense gaze in to the forest landscapes only to return back with elements of human interventions that either erases it or shocks the viewer with bright yet subtle forms appearing and disappearing on the surface. The minimalistic treatment of his subject with keen eye on the surrounding that remains empty opens with a burst of fire in the dark of the jungle.
