Asit Patnaik

Asit Patnaik

The greatest possibilities of Asit Kumar Patnaik’s work emerge from their productive equivocation. The appeal of Patnaik’s craft is embodied in his deft negotiations between, and across, several binaries—figurative and abstract, man and woman, background and foreground, lines and colours, singular and plural. In that sense, Patnaik’s work resonates with the increasing propensity among critics and popular audiences alike to warm up to the potential of ambivalent sensibilities. For quite some time now, there has arisen among connoisseurs of art and literature, indeed of culture as a whole, a welcome discomfort with binaries and a corresponding openness to ambivalence. Nothing, it would appear, is any longer fit to be perceived as either black or white, either enlightening or obfuscating and so on.
