The sand in the lower one third of the image contrasts sharply with the larger rocks in the upper two thirds. The white paper accentuates the division line, yet unifies the two. Wet paper takes the shape of the object it covers, temporarily assuming a three dimensional quality it normally doesn’t have. The wetness of the paper creates a clinging quality which meld it to the rocks it covers. It also gives it a translucency which accentuates its fragility in comparison with the rocks. This House Sculpture is one of three bronze relief sculptures created by American pop artist Jim Dine in 1983. This one, located in Houston’s Discovery Green Park, is dedicated to the memory of well known Houston philanthropist Maconda Brown ‘Connor.

Ramkinkar Baij (1906-1980) was born in Bankura, West Bengal, into a family of little economic and social standing and grew by his sheer determination into one of the most distinguished early modernists of Indian art. In 1925, he made his way to Kala Bhavana, the art school at Santiniketan and was under the guidance of Nandalal Bose. Encouraged by the liberating, intellectual environment of Santiniketan, his artistic skills and intellectual horizons blossomed, thus acquiring greater depth and complexity. Soon after completing his studies at Kala Bhavana he became a faculty member, and along with Nandalal Bose and Benodebehari Mukherjee played a pivotal role in making Santiniketan one of the most important centres for modern art in pre-Independent India. Ramkinkar’smonumental sculptures are established landmarks in public art. One of the earliest modernists in Indian art, he assimilated the idioms of the European modern visual language and yet was rooted in his own Indian ethos. He experimented restlessly with forms, moving freely from figurative to abstract and back to figurative, his themes were steeped in a deep sense of humanism and an instinctive understanding of the symbiotic relationship between man and nature. Both in his paintings and sculptures, he pushed the limits of experimentation and ventured into the use of new materials. For instance, his use of unconventional material, for the time, such as cement concrete for his monumental public sculptures set a new precedent for art practices. The use of cement, laterite and mortar to model the figures, and the use of a personal style in which modern western and Indian pre-classical sculptural values were brought together was equally radical.
