Anita Roy Chowdhury is a familiar name in the city art circle. She is one senior artist who is constantly involved in experimenting with form, medium, style and expression and in the process evolving new styles and forms. Roy Chowdhury trained herself at Calcutta’s premier art institute during the turbulent years of the 1950s, when it was natural for most budding artists, and youths in general, to give their aesthetic values a socio-political orientation. Roy Chowdhury, however, chose to steer clear of that. Instead, she chose to traverse the arduous terrain of artistic expression in essentially visual terms. In the process, her deep poetic and musical sensibilities found a natural haven in her visual figurations. Her drawings are neat but they tend to be loaded with layers of meaning and she gradually tends to create an abstract universe of her own. An exhibition of her recent works is currently being hosted by Samantoral.
