Project Description

Broota creates surreal dialogues by using distinct images and juxtaposing them into a carefully edited and perfected vision.

Engaging the medium and the subject, Broota has photographed his own body almost obsessively, capturing its palpability, the breathing pores of his skin, the feel of its wholeness with focused attention on the parts, especially areas if connectedness and disjuncture. Despite its precision and realism, Broota has never captured the body as an object of display but as a subject nuanced with its perplexity and inherent complexity. For him, the sensual and the grotesque, strength and fragility, growth and decay all have been engaging aspects of the human (male) body that he has been preoccupied with for decades also through his painting.
