This book, being an inquiry into the creative process, is based on interviews with five significant artists of our time: Meera Mukherjee, Jogen Chowdhury, Manjit Bawa, Arpita Singh and Ganesh Pyne. They articulate, through words and through images, their personal sensibility and a particular worldview. Their vision may find resonances from myth and archetype and technique; yet it is never imitative. Through exploration and experiment, these artists have each arrived at a language of expression uniquely their own; and this language has contributed in some seminal sense to contemporary art in India. These chapters explain the meaning of originality in its true sense: as the fusion of the new and the old, the forbidden and the familiar - to discover from the worn-out, new images that subvert the original implications - leading us to fresh insights on life and its values today Table Of Contents: Preface61Image: An Introduction82He Who Saw: Meera Mukherjee243Reminiscences Of A Dream: Jogen Chowdhury444The Purple Piper: Manjit Bawa725Woman In Red: Arpita Singh966Encounter In The Twilight Zone: Ganesh Pyne1227Imagination: In Retrospect150End Notes168Bibliography172Acknowledgements176 Special Features: Image and Imagination
