Title : Two Veiled Dancers Artist : RamKumar Manna Medium : Terracotta Size : 23" x 42" x 8"
RamKumar Manna's name is synonymous with the word "clay". His strong figures with their rough texture have a sensitivity yet tactile strength never seen before in this medium. He uses a unique mixture of clay and grog and fires each piece for days in a hand made brick kiln. They can be used indoors or outdoors.
This large work was done for his solo show at Range Gallery "PerForm". The artist presents the dancers as village performers. Inspired by real-life performances, these almost surreal works of veteran terracotta artist RamKumar Manna are one of a kind.
