Lot Essay

“To my mind every artist must also be an artisan, who brings to his work a devotion which moves him through the progress of his work. Like an artisan, an artist must learn to work without cease. He must in fact work harder: because while the work of an artisan has its well-defined contours, the universe of the artist is without palpable bounds. In it, he is faced, like an explorer, with new regions of experience, which he must chart and gain by means of his own skills and unflagging effort. The problems he will face will not be solved by given stereotypes or formulae learnt by heart. The solutions he will have to find by his own struggle with ideas, materials and tools. For the artist it will be a ceaseless, life-long struggle.” – Meera Mukherjee
