LITERATURE:

Manasij Majumder, Sakti Burman Dreamer on the Ark, Mumbai, 2001, p. 162, pl. 110, illustrated.


‘Narration and enchantement are the two profound and cultural constant elements of his poetical world and they are perfectly in unison with each other… ”Enchantement”… the surprise in front of novelty and beauty of things. It is some thing that makes us breathless, that puts us to meditation… it is not the absence of one’s mind but a meditation of the infinite that is both in and out of us… That probably is the essence of Sakti Burman’s paintings. The subtle threads of desires and dreams give rise to a picture which slowly slides from the past memories towards a laguna illuminated by shining transparency of small and living images.’ (I. Pel. Luc. Calvero, ‘Sakti Burman’, Sakti Burman, Paris, 1984, unpaginated)
